Women's Golf

Members of the Upper East Coast Women's Golf Association celebrated the organization's 60th anniversary with a tournament and luncheon at Indian River Colony Club in Viera.

BREVARD COUNTY — It takes patience, determination and much practice to excel at any skill, but it can be more fun to do so while in a group setting.

Golf is one such sport which gives people the chance to enjoy some of the beautiful courses Brevard County has to offer, and so happens to be home to the Upper East Coast Women’s Golf Association (UECWGA).

The women’s golfing organization represents 14 of Brevard’s golf courses, and is looking for new members to join its ranks.

Golfers recently celebrated the UECWGA’s 60th anniversary with a tournament and luncheon at the Indian River Colony Club, which has been named in 2018 as one of the top 20 golf communities in North America by GolfCourseHome.com.

The special anniversary celebration tournament was put together by members of the MRI team, which is represented by the Manatee Cove Golf Course, Rockledge Country Club and Indian River Colony Club.

“Playing golf together, you form many new friendships, plus the added bonus of playing golf at many different courses for a reasonable price,” said Nancy Carroll, member of the UECWGA and an Indian River Colony Club resident.

The UECWGA currently has seven teams, which plays in tournaments from March through October, taking the month of August off.

Officials stated that ladies interested in joining the UECWGA must have a United States Golf Association handicap index of no more than 32.0 and they must be a member of a USGA certified golf course. The annual fee to join is $15. Ladies can sign up with the UECWGA at the golf club they already play.
