Area women are invited to  a fun 9-hole round of golf to its annual Women Only Golf Outing – WOGO! 2016 – being held at the West Chester Country Club in West Chester, Pennsylvania, on Monday, September 26.

The networking/awards portion of the event will be from 4:30- 6 p.m. Check-in is Monday, September 26, between 1 and 1:45 PM, with a golf clinic offered at 1:15 pm until the shotgun start at 2:00 PM.

Women golfers at every skill level are invited to the WOGO! 2016 event, which is centered around the lighthearted aspects of the game. Inexperienced golfers who might ordinarily be reluctant to play are encouraged to register. Event organizer Bronwyn Martin says, "This event isn't about the score – it's about the goal of raising money, having fun and meeting other women who believe in the power of a group to help others."

The West Chester Golf & Country is a multiple tee, 9 hole golf course that plays to an 18 hole par 70. It measures 5700 yards with a slope rating of 126. With tight fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and small greens, the course offers a challenge to player of all skill levels. The course features Bent grass fairways and greens. West Chester Golf & Country Club enjoys a rich history dating back to its founding in 1897, making this one of the most historic and well respected clubs in the region.

Players can preregister and pay for the outing at www.chestercountywomen.com and must be paid in full by August 31, 2016. Sponsorships at different levels are available and can also be purchased on the website.

All of the WOGO! 2016 profits go to West Chester University (WCU) Foundation's MM Power Scholarship Fund, which was started in 2007 by Bronwyn Martin, a WCU MBA alumnus.

Martin believes strongly in the power of education and its importance worldwide, especially for women. “Over 70% of West Chester University students rely on financial aid or scholarships to assist in funding their education. In these turbulent economic times, scholarship dollars are more critical than ever. The WOGO event is a great way to network with women and financially support the next generation of professional women.”

 Although it is a state-supported university, WCU relies on private financial gifts to enable offering the finest opportunities to its students. The MM Power Scholarship is awarded each semester to a woman majoring in the sciences or business at the university. Candidates must meet specific criteria, including a minimum GPA of 2.5 and demonstrated financial need. Besides helping to alleviate the expense of obtaining an education, the MM Power Scholarship reduces the stress of borrowing money to attend college.
