There will not be a registration fee this year as this is strictly for fun, catching up with friends, and coming out when the time is right for you. We have 40 tee times available; players will be added to the roster on a first come, first serve basis. If it looks like we have a lot of interest, we will attempt to secure additional times.
Once you have registered you MUST go back in and select the dates that you plan to play. You can do that by logging into Golf Genuis using the GGID: 2023WINTER.

Event: Chapter Donations to Help Support Girls Golf
Each year our chapter helps young girls get involved with playing golf through several fundraising events that happen during the year. These include 50/50 ticket sales at our Annual Kickoff, Par 3 Challenge, and Swing Fore the Girls, in addition to $10 from the registration fee for Swing Fore the Girls. We also raise funds through our online auction that happens in May/June each year. This year, we raised a total of $4,013.00.
There are two organizations who support this effort that we provided funds to – First Tee Greater Sacramento and Morton Golf’s Junior Girls Golf Development program that offers grants to girls between the ages of 12 – 18 to achieve growing their golf game, helping with cost of lessons and equipment.
On November 29, Theresa Garcia (Chapter President) and Sheryl Sookman (Immediate Past President) officially presented a check for $1,605.00 to Jane Sieber, Marketing Events Coordinator, with Morton Golf Foundation and a check for $2,408.00 to Angie Dixon, Executive Director, First Tee Greater Sacramento.
A big thank you to all of our members who continue to support our efforts to encourage young women to play golf!

Help Make Our End of the Year Event a Fun One!
It’s time to celebrate you, our members! Join us for our Big Break Challenge on Saturday November 19 from 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm. The event will start at the Haggin Oaks Academy Holes with some fun activities and then we’ll move to the Creekside Tent (located across from hole #1 on the Arcade Creek Course) for a reception.
We could use your help guiding other members through the five following activities - putting, chipping, pitching, flop shot, and bunker shot. We could also use help with checking in members at the registration table and tallying the scorecards. We will rotate our volunteers around so everyone can participate in the challenges too!
If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Karen Graser, our education director no later than October 31 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let Karen know which type of activity you’d like to help with. We can’t do these events without you, so thanks in advance for volunteering!
