As a countdown to our 25th Anniversary Celebration in Colonial Williamsburg in April, EWGA Founder Nancy Oliver has agreed to write a weekly column and share her amazing collection of newsletters and press clips revealing the early years. 

EWGA Heads West to Orange County, CA

We Love LAWe had a number of women from Los Angeles respond to this article in the LA Times…and together with the various PGA pros in the area, we were able to form an organizing committee.  But as is typically the case, it takes one dedicated woman to lead the charge.  Eventually, the most appropriate woman revealed herself in the form of an LPGA Teaching Professional, Helene Landers.  Helene had just finished a video entitled the Women’s Golf Guide, and she with all those other volunteers brought this chapter to life.   From there, the Orange County Chapter was born, and today, the Southern California chapters have truly developed a tight camaraderie. 

I am looking forward to visiting the Orange County Chapter’s “Summer Getaway” at Sycuan Golf Resort in San Diego the middle of May, and hoping to see lots of other Southern California members there, too!    Sure is fun catching up with all these chapters and going down memory lane!
