In the new book, Teeing Up for Success, the EWGA has compiled stories of insight and inspiration from extraordinary women on how they have used the game of golf to achieve their goals. For Bellevue business owner, Cheri Brennan, golf has become an integral part of her profession and personal life.
In her chapter, “An Alliance of Golf, Wine and Giving Back,” Brennan, owner of Alliance Communications, an excellent marketing and public relations consultancy, credits a client (none other than Scott Oki) with prompting her to dust off her golf clubs after several years. Brennan is a native of Kirkland and long time resident of Redmond. Working with Oki prompted her to take lessons to refresh her skills and ultimately enabled her to create a niche as a consultant to golf industry clients. Since her initial project with Oki Developments and The Golf Club at Newcastle, she makes weekly league play a standing appointment, she volunteers with two women’s gold groups including EWGA’s Seattle chapter, she produced a workshop for businesswomen on “Mastering the Art of Business Golf,” and she writes a periodic column (“From the Forward Tees”) on women’s golf for Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine.
The book offers over 30 compelling stories of how golf can make a difference in one’s life. From EWGA’s CEO Pam Swensen’s “The Power of the Dimpled Ball” to Debbie Waitkus’ “Turning Golf into Gold,” these stories share their most intimate recollections of how the game has contributed positively to their lives and careers.
For many of these women, golf has been a door opener and has presented them with countless opportunities. It has given them equality, credibility and has opened the lines of communication, allowing for easy conversation and providing a great setting of relaxation and fun.
Delve into these chapters and enjoy these women’s stories of wisdom, courage, faith and success. Prepare to be inspired by this beautiful compilation woven together by a love for golf.
