Silverman Sinks Single!
Shouts of glee rang over the course at the Grove Park Inn on June 16, as Lorraine Silverman of the EWGA Asheville Chapter realized that she had made a hole-in-one on the notoriously difficult Hole #2. Although it is a 112-yard Par 3 hole, success on this classic Donald Ross-designed challenge requires clearing the steep, thickly vegetated banks of a meandering stream to reach the undulating green. Lorraine used a five iron for her achievement. Congratulations!
The Asheville Area Chapter of EWGA crowned its 2015 chapter champions on June 7 at the Omni Grove Park Inn golf course.
Topping the stroke play category was Shelagh Byrne, with a score of 88. The winning Scramble team of Carol Anne Howell, Carol Mills, Susan West and Jackie Kirkey posted a 77.

Congratulations to the EWGA Asheville team of Joyce Adams, Shelagh Byrne, Carol Anne Howell, Anne Snyder and Blake Kennedy, who came in first with a net score of 50.3! Each team had a Golf Pro play with their scramble team. Our Pro, Blake had a drive that we all could envy!
