LEAGUE POLICY: All leagues are managed via Golf Genius™.
Contacts: Click on the Events/Leagues tab on the Chapter website www.lpgaamateurstampabay.com for a current list of our leagues and League Captains. For help with Golf Genius registration contact the League Captain (via the link on the website) or Kim Byle at (email@example.com).
League Registration: The link to register for each league can be accessed via the Chapter website. Click on the link to access the league registration form and sign up by clicking on the Register Now button. You name and email address will be added to the League Roster. You will need to register for each league separately.
Round Registration: Each week a message is sent out via email inviting you to play in that week’s round. Simply reply Playing or Not Playing (note that no reply is equivalent to Not Playing). If Playing, you will be added to that week’s Round Roster. Golf Genius logs the order in which players register and automatically generates a waitlist if a set headcount limit is reached; waitlisted players will be added to the round roster in the order in which they are waitlisted. Note, there will be no Sunday league play on dates that conflict with the monthly golf events.
Guest Policy: A guest/non-member is welcome to play in up to two Chapter golf activities within a calendar year. Further participation requires membership in the LPGA Amateur Golf Association Tampa Bay Chapter. Note, leagues generally have limited tee times at their respective golf courses, but may be able to accommodate all guest requests given sufficient advance notice. It is recommended that members contact the League Captain, in advance, if they plan to invite a guest. Participation in the leagues is one of the major benefits of membership in the Chapter; priority will be given to members of the Chapter, should the maximum headcount be exceeded.
Payments: Players are responsible for paying the golf course directly on the day of play. League rates cover golf with a cart assuming two riders per cart. Single rider carts may be available for an upcharge, depending upon the golf facility policy.
Pairings: League Captain will schedule pairings. Pairing requests will be taken into consideration, but cannot always be guaranteed. A day or two prior to play, the League Captains typically email the tee sheet.
Cancellations: Members should contact the League Captain if they have to cancel so that adjustments to the pairings can be made, if possible. Note that at Westchase, each week the names of the players have to be submitted to the Director of Golf 48 hours in advance. If a player needs to cancel within the 48-hour window, in addition to contacting the League Captain, they need to call the Pro Shop to have their name removed from the tee sheet.

EVENT POLICY: All events are managed via Golf Genius™.
Waiver: All members play and participate at their own risk and adhere to local, state and government advisories.
Contacts: Click on the Events/Leagues tab on the Chapter website www.lpgaamateurstampabay.com for the calendar of events, including the event details and Event Coordinator.
Registration: Registration will typically open approximately 3 weeks prior to the event and close around 1 week prior. The links to register will be posted on the website home page www.lpgaamateurstampabay.com and in an e-blast sent out to Members when registration opens. All participants must register for events online via Golf Genius™. If the event is full, you will be placed on its waitlist. Waitlisted players will be cleared in the order in which they register. For help with Golf Genius™ registration contact the Event Coordinator (via the link on the website) or Kim Byle at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Guest Policy: Guests are welcome to attend events that include a non-member option. Events may be set up to offer priority registration to Members, then open up to guest registration if space allows. Guest fee is typically higher than the member fee because guests are not eligible for any member discount. Guests are required to sign a Release and Indemnification Agreement prior to participation in a Chapter Event. A guest/non-member may not participate in more than two (2) Chapter activities in the same calendar year, excluding social events.
Payments: Members and guests must pay by credit card during registration.
Cancellations/Refunds: In Golf Genius™, refunds are subject to a 4% administrative charge to cover the transaction fees. Typically, no refunds will be given after the registration deadline, and prior to the event date. Refunds after the event date may be issued provided the venue does not charge us for the total headcount submitted once registration closed. Contact the Event Coordinator if you are not able to attend an event that you have registered for, and to request a refund.
Rain Out Policy: If a golf event is canceled due to inclement weather, the rain check policy for the golf course applies. The Event Coordinator will work with the golf course to determine if rain checks will be given or if the event will be canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled, or if members are not able to play on a rescheduled date, refunds will be issued.

Guests/non-members may be invited to participate in LPGA Amateur Golf Association and Chapter activities as provided in the specific activity details. Guests/non-members may be charged a higher fee than members at these events. A guest/non-member may not participate in more than two (2) Chapter activities in the same calendar year, excluding social events. Guests are required to join the Association in order to attend a third event during the year.
Any non-member participating in any Association golf related activity is required to sign a Chapter Event Waiver, Release, and Indemnification Agreement (“Chapter Release”). Forms are to be made available at any event where non-members can participate. Non-members need only sign one form for the year, which is then kept on file with the Chapter. Members automatically acknowledge this form when they join or renew and do not need to sign an
additional form. The Chapter Release form can be found in the Association Insurance and Claim Manual and as a stand-alone document in the Leader Resource Site.
Visiting members from other Chapters are not restricted by this Chapter Guest policy. However, visiting members who request to play in the same Chapter on a regular basis may be asked to become a dual member of that Chapter.
The Association embraces diversity as outlined in the Diversity Statement. Association programs are designed for all women; from college-age women and young professionals to women who are in the midst of the careers to those who are retired.
Men are welcome to join LPGA Amateur Golf Association with full rights and privileges of membership with one exception - eligibility to compete in Association Championship Series, Cup Series, Scramble Open, Stableford and other specifically identified Association and Chapter competitive events (i.e. Chapter Championship).
A member whose membership has lapsed, is no longer considered an active member and member-in-good-standing and is not eligible to participate in Chapter or Association business, events, or promotions, to access systems where access is permitted by membership or Members Only areas of the website as the member is no longer entitled to any rights of membership.
