2014 Score Posting Season Ends Soon
October 31st will be the last day that we can post scores played at Maine golf courses. Our season runs from April 15th to the end of October. After that you must still post scores that are played at golf facilities that are in season, such as those in Florida or the Carolinas. Handicaps are calculated year round, so if you travel south this winter it's important to post your scores.


Off Season Update

Sadly for all golfers the SMWGA season is over. During the winter months, changes may occur on the website. The Results of 2014 will be available until January 1, 2015.
The playing schedule is semi-complete but before you look forward to that terrific venue, changes may occur, so hold out for that info until March.
One major addition to the site is the booklet. It too, is a work-in-progress. An announcement will be forthcoming when it is online.
Another new feature will be maps and directions.
In the meantime, when it suits you, you can renew your membership electronically or with a postage stamp.


SMWGA Annual Meeting

President’s Report

Wednesday, October 8, 2014
(To read other reports from the Fall Meeting, click here.)

 

Thank you all for taking the time to attend our Annual Meeting on October 9.

It’s hard to believe our last tournament of the year is behind us and thanks to Mother Nature, we had far more nice tournament days than not. 

 This first year as President has been quite a learning experience for me.  I appreciate your patience.  Hopefully with the knowledge I’ve gained from others throughout this season, I’ll be more prepared for 2015.

 Thankfully we have many dedicated Board members, committee members and club reps who volunteer their time attending meetings and getting things done for us. With all of your help along with our scorer, Claire and Executive Director, Barbara Freeman, even if we hit a bump in the road now and then, it manages to get smoothed over very nicely.

 Members, we thank you for all your support throughout the year.  Without your membership and participation in tournaments, there would be no SMWGA.  So keep coming out and enjoy the camaraderie, outdoors, and competition while playing the great game of golf!  AND…feel free to spread the word and encourage others to join our group.

 Although my handicap has been rising steadily, I’ve still enjoyed the season and hope you have as well.

 Thank you, Joy Eon
