UMES to get chapter of Executive Women’s Golf Association

PRINCESS ANNE — The Executive Women’s Golf Association announces the opening of its inaugural collegiate chapter at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) on Thursday, April 30, 2015.

“This is a milestone as we welcome UMES as the first collegiate chapter of the EWGA,” says CEO Pam Swensen. “We anticipate this to be the first of many collegiate chapters to come. EWGA excels at creating opportunities for women to use golf personally and professionally. We are delighted to provide our collegiate members with leadership tools to be successful both on and off the course.”

The chapter launch is part of UMES’s ‘Pink on the Green’ initiative to get more women playing golf. On April 30, 2015, UMES will host an all campus event from 11AM – 2PM at its driving range to promote the game of golf to students, faculty and staff. At noon, a ceremony with EWGA representatives and university dignitaries will culminate with the signing of the first collegiate Chapter Affiliation Agreement.
