Eagle Bend Ladies Golf Association - We enjoy golf and social events!

The Eagle Bend Ladies Golf Association (EBLGA) was established well over twenty years ago to provide women members of Eagle Bend Golf Club, as well as women of the community, with an organized women’s golf group. Today the membership numbers about 120 with about 60 active members. EBLGA women are a diverse group, coming from New Jersey to California. Many have experienced interesting careers, raised families, and contributed to their communities. We invite you to join us by picking up a membership packet in the golf shop. We encourage you to please visit our website: eblga.com or contact us at eblga@gmail.com. When you join our group, you will be assigned a “big sister” mentor to make sure you get acquainted with everyone.

Lady golfers can choose to participate in an 18-hole group for organized golf every Tuesday morning, simply by signing up by the preceding Sunday, and a very informal 9-hole group plays on Thursday mornings. There are also many opportunities to join friends on other days of the week, and a group of ladies get together on Thursdays and travel to a different area golf club each week for a day of golf and fun.

In addition to regular weekly golf, EBLGA hosts a Member-Member tournament in June and the President’s Cup in August. Eagle Bend Golf Club hosts the Member-Guest Tournament and Club Championship in August.

EBLGA is not just about golf. The Welcome-Back Social and Golf Shop Apparel Sale kick off the year in June. New members are invited to play a round of golf and join their "big sisters" and the EBLGA Board for a party after the event. Members meet monthly for lunch and a general meeting after golf, and finally, the “after party” for the President’s Cup and the awards party at the end of the season round out the year.

The love of golf and the pleasure of being part of a group of interesting women are the reasons we belong, but the event of which we are most proud is the philanthropic “Swing Fore A Sister” event held in July. It is a festive day for pink outfits and includes a fun scramble-format tournament. Most importantly, this event provides care for women in our community who are facing cancer. EBLGA is proud to contribute well over $15,000 each year to Flathead Valley hospital programs.

EBLGA also coordinates volunteers and a dedicated garden manager who work together to plant flowers and maintain the signature #6 golf hole, creating a beautiful area enjoyed by all who play the Eagle Bend Golf Course.
