Tuesday Games Head Coordinator
2023 WWGA Board
Our WWGA Board Members are all volunteers elected to serve a three year term. Generally, 2 members come off and 2 new members come on each year. We are governed by a set of by-laws and Board Members usually meet monthly. A mix of members serve on the Board representing both high and low handicap players, members who play in weekend tournaments and members who only play on Tuesdays. Some members are at The Woods only on weekends, some are full-time residents and others are only here for the summer. Here is our current slate of Officers and Chairs.
President – Sheryl Dolin has been a full-time resident of The Woods since 2007. The past several years she has split time between West Virginia and north Idaho providing elder care for her mom in Coeur d'Alene. She has been active in the WWGA, previously serving as tournament chair and president, and also plays in the Mason Dixon league. Sheryl is excited to lead WWGA through the upcoming transition as WHOA purchases the Woods.
Vice-President – Laura Word has been at The Woods since 2001, initially as a weekender while working in Washington, DC for the National Endowment for the Humanities. Since she retired from NEH at the end of 2014, she divided her time between Fort Myers, FL and The Woods. Her heart is in WV, where she was born and raised (in Beckley WV), so she plans to stay here, which is why she and Lamar bought another house here in 2021.
She served on the WWGA board many years ago. Her interests in serving again are several. She wants us to build on the connections we’ve made with our increasingly robust golf groups on Stony Lick and Mountain View; she wants to ensure that we continue a good calendar of men’s/women’s/mixed events on both courses; and for those of you interested in the competitive tournaments, OK, yeah, she thinks we should continue these, but we need to find ways to get more people to play!
Finally, she is very keen on having WWGA and WMGA part of the discussions with WHOA and a new management company on the potential future of golf for all of us here at The Woods.
Treasurer – Renee Gibb is a full time resident of The Woods. She moved here in October of 2020 from Annapolis, MD. She played golf with the SL-18 group and joined the MV group in 2022. Renee is looking forward to more free time for golf and working with our association.
Secretary & Tuesday Games Head Coordinator – Barbara Hageman is a full-time resident of The Woods. She and her husband bought property here many years ago. They built their home in 2019 and moved here from Laurel, MD after retirement. Barbara is an Aerospace Engineer and worked as a Software Engineer and is embracing retirement fully. Barbara was the Vice President and Tuesday Coordinator in 2022 and will now be Secretary.
Tournament Chair – Liz Shaw is newly elected to the Board. She is a relative newcomer to golf and primarily a weekend player. She is a weekend resident, but has spent more time this past year at The Woods due to the Covid restrictions at her workplace.
Membership Chair – Wendy Smith is a full-time resident and lives with her husband, Joe and dog, Bogey. A relatively newcomer to golf, she plays in the Tuesday League and last year expanded her golf experience by playing the Mt. View Course and participates in different WWGA and WMGA tournaments. This is her third year on the board where she was the treasurer the past 2 years and this year is the membership chair. She also founded and coordinates the Hiking Club here in The Woods.
Social Chair – Sue Walker is a full time resident of The Woods. She moved here in March of 2021 from Pittsburgh, PA. Sue is a relatively new golfer, playing with our SL-9 group in 2022. She retired as a Director of Nursing in Geriatrics, and is one of our newest residents here, and is also jumping in 100% to golf more and work with our association. She is continuing her Social Chair role from 2022.
MDD Representative – Cindy Gresham - and her husband Gary purchased their home at the Woods in 2015, first as a second home, but are now full time here the last two years. Cindy retired in 2022 and is getting used to a very different schedule, especially becoming more involved with Tuesday golf. Prior to retirement she was the National Sales Manager for a Chemical company and traveled more than 75% of the time domestically and internationally. She was in this industry for 47 years, so truly, is now getting used to a new lifestyle. She was previously President of the WWGA and will lead the Mason-Dixon District team this year.
Woods Club Representative –Sally Johnston is President of PVP and a non-voting member who plays primarily in the Weekend Tournaments.
Director of Golf – Ron Springer, who we think lives at the golf course but in actuality just lives nearby.
Web Guru aka “the Historian” – Mary Forte, while not on the Board, is responsible for creating and maintaining the WWGA website. She is a full-time resident, plays in the Weekend Tournaments, on Tuesdays, in Mason-Dixon District League, and has served on the Board in various positions. She has maintained our website from day one so probably knows more about what has gone on in the WWGA than any of the Board members.
