This is a copy of our proposed new scorecard.  We will be making the final decision by May 31st.  If you would like to discuss please email gwood@stonoferrygolf.com or call the shop and ask for Greg.

The Stono Ferry WGA has had a very busy spring season. We started the season off with our Sponsorship Cocktail party and New Rules Clinic. We have reached our sponsorship goals for the 2019 season, and we thank all our sponsors. I will send a complete list of our sponsors to our membership, please try to patronize our sponsors over other business in the area. When you do, please say “THANK YOU”.

February 19th, Stono hosted CALGA at Stono. We had a full field of players, the weather was cold, but everyone enjoyed playing Stono Ferry. Our own Diane Taylor won low gross for her flight. Wynn Hardy our new CALGA representative did an amazing job organizing the day.
March 20th, we hosted Seabrook in our annual Home/Home event. The event was planned by Katherine LaDoyen, Dianne Taylor, and Chris Murphy. We had 30 players, 15 from Seabrook and 15 from Stono. Format was a 4-person team:  2 Seabrook, and 2 Stono, best 2 low net balls. We encouraged the ladies to dress as golfers from the 20-30’s. Golf was followed with a delicious lunch. Everyone enjoyed the
day. Seabrook will host Stono WGA on Sept 18th.

March 23-24th was our Stono Classic, well planned by Georgiann Kralik, Marilyn Schnitz, and Dianne Taylor.

On May 11th, we will have a new event: Spring Fling which will just be a fun day of golf with different challenges, prizes, and lunch. Please come and participate in the relaxed, fun filled day.  June 8th is the MGA/WGA Yellow Ball Event. It is a good opportunity for the WGA to socialize with the MGA. It is always a fun event and usually a good social hour after golf. Please plan to attend.
