Fairway FriendsTM is a mentoring program available to all EWGA members and is supported by program sponsor Be the Ball 4U.

In Fairway FriendsTM, experienced golfers partner with new golfers to help them feel comfortable on the golf course.  Fairway FriendsTM is what the EWGA is all about - helping women enter the game of golf in a fun, supportive environment!

Who is a Fairway FriendTM Mentor?
A mentor is an experienced, but not necessarily good golfer who guides a new golfer on pace of play, basic rules and proper etiquette on and off the golf course.  Also, a mentor may guide the new member on how to participate in other EWGA events.

Who is a Fairway FriendTM Mentee?
A mentee is  someone making the transition from instruction to playing on a golf course.  A mentee is paired with a mentor to guide them around the golf course safely and answer questions about etiquette, basic rules and the other nuances of the game in order to build confidence and comfort in the golf course setting.
