An application and detailed information is now online for the
2nd Annual Maine Women's Amateur.
Welcome to our “cyber” home
Golf in Maine is spectacular... and golfing with all your girlfriends is even better! The Women's Maine State Golf Association cordially invites every woman golfer in Maine to join our organization. Almost everything you need to know about us, you can learn right here.
The Women's Maine State Golf Association was founded in 1926 to promote the sport of golf for women and junior girls in Maine. Today approximately 80 member clubs belong to our association and hundreds of women throughout the state enjoy the benefits of membership.
See you on the course!
Spring greetings from President Trudy Dorval

Introducing the new
WMSGA Message Board
A message board (MB) is a wonderful tool which will allow our membership an easy way to communicate within our organization as a whole. Perhaps you find yourself short one or two players for a team event; the MB is the place to begin your search. On the flip side say you want to play a team event and have no team; the MB is again the place to begin your search. Maybe you would like to carpool to an event; the MB is again the place to begin your search. Let’s say you have a fun story that you would like to share with the WMSGA community; the MB is the place to post that tale.
You will find our new WMSGA Message Board at the following URL:
http://members.boardhost.com/wmsga/ or click the link in the “News & Notice” sidebar.
This message board is for WMSGA members only and will be monitored. One way of doing that is to require users to establish a “username and password”. This method, of monitoring, will also help keep “spamming” to a minimum. So before you can post a thread (request/item) you will need to create a log-in account. The board administrator will monitor usernames, passwords and posting content.
Please remember to include your contact information (phone #, cell # or email) in your thread (request/item) or reply if you want a direct reply.
So have fun and visit the MB often,
Chacole, Website Administrator
New Downloadable 2013 Schedule
To keep up with times I decided to publish our 2013 schedule in two downloadable formats. You can now import our schedule into any electronic calendar. This will allow you to have our schedule with you at all times. Weather on your iPhone/PDA, iPad, notebook or desktop…
There is an iCal (.ics) version and an MS Outlook (.csv) version. Each comes with complete instructions on how to import them into your calendar program. If you use the calendar in MS Outlook ('10, '07 or '03) I would recommend using the .cvs version and follow the "mapping" instructions. I also will make myself available to answer questions or assist you in the process.
The best feature of these downloads is activating the “reminder/notification” capability of your calendar program, you will never miss an event deadline again. You can set that feature to remind you on the day that application submission opens. Most of our event applications “open’ on a Friday which is 18 days prior to the event.
In the iCal version you will need to manually set the “reminder/notification” by opening the “calendar settings” of your calendar program or by “editing” each event. Remember that Tri-State and NEWGA have special “open” dates that don’t fall on a Friday.
In the MS Outlook (.csv) version you have the option of turning the “reminder” feature ON or OFF. I have set those reminders to notify you on the application “open” date at 8:00 AM for all events. Remember that the “reminders” in Outlook are invisible and are not seen on those Fridays. To assure you have import correctly, open the May 7th event and make sure that the “reminder box” displays either “18 days” or approximately “432 hours” (varies do to SG or TT).
