Teeing up for Success

Insights and Inspirations from Extraordinary Women


From Alice Dye, the first female golf architect to Marilyn Bunag an aspiring social worker and recipient of the 2010 EWGA Foundation’s Women On Par® scholarship, Teeing Up for Success offers over 30 compelling stories on how golf makes a difference in women’s lives. 

Golf has been a conversation starter, equalizer, and door opener in these women’s careers, as well as in their personal lives, opening lines of communication and providing great settings for relaxation and fun.

A hole-in-one helped Debbie Waitkus make the leap from a corporate office to her thriving business Golf for Cause.  Volunteer leaders share how golf and EWGA have forged friendships and offered endless opportunities to grow and succeed.
