Greetings Everyone! Latest President Update:
It’s already hot out there already but that is not holding us back. Our Summer Wednesday golf has kicked off and there is more information to follow, but Lynn Robbins will be leading a Saturday Summer 18 hole travel league. The plan is to start the first week of June. Other activities for this Summer include a travel trip to Innisbrook 13 - 15 August. Although this event is open to all chapter members, guest, friends and families the Innisbrook Copperhead Course will be used for the regional qualifier for the LPGA Amateurs Cup 29 - 20 September. Our chapter travel trip will be a great opportunity for a practice round for those planning to participate in cup competition. Single and double occupancy lodging will be available.
2023 LPGA Amateurs Cup - Ladies did you know that last year our chapter, under the leadership of Cindy Schmelzer, fielded an 8 women team that took 2nd place? Well, we are going at it again with the return of core members of last year’s team and a few replacements. More importantly, we believe there may be demand for a second team and seek participation for additional chapter members. Key dates are as follows: the regional qualifier is 29 - 30 Sep at Innisbrook Resort on the Cooper Head Course, Tarpon Springs, FL. Nine qualifying teams will move forward from this event to the finals 20 - 21 Oct at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, Oxmoor Valley. Birmingham, AL. If you are interested in participating on this second team, please contact Cindy.
New Play Cancelation Policy - We are experiencing a rise in last minute and no-show cancellations for pay at the course events. The impact of these last-minute cancellations is a negative impact on our relationship with the courses. In order to address this, we are implementing a policy whereby individuals who cancel one day prior to event, or who are no shows two times in a 90-day period will not be allowed to play in a league event for 30 days. Prompt communication with league coordinators is key. When you are considering cancelling, obtaining or finding a replacement. is extremely helpful. You can contact the league coordinator with the name of your replacement.
We want to keep growing our leagues and our reputation at participating courses. We ask that everyone helps in this effort. Thanks for your ongoing support.
As the Chapter grows, we need additional leaders to help out. If you are interested in becoming part of the chapter leadership team, or if you have suggestions on events, venues or anything to improve our members experience please feel free to email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
