Sam Clum – Golf Programs & Services Director

Sam Clum

Sam comes from a golfing family and has played from a young age. As her parents put it, “marry a guy that makes you happy AND golfs.” She found one and they have a beautiful daughter/future LPGAA member! Sam grew up in Chicago and worked at a local golf course during the summers in the pro shop and coaching junior golf programs. It was especially rewarding for her to help girls learn to play and enjoy golf from such a young age.

She was too busy to take golf seriously herself until she moved to Dallas and joined the LPGA Amateurs, but she gets out every chance she can now with the ladies and at Northwood CC. While she hasn’t had a hole in one (yet) she had 3 birdies in a row at 7 months pregnant, and shot a 42 on 9 holes a week before her baby was due - beating her husband! Something there about playing without cocktails…

Sam also serves on the board of East Dallas Boys & Girls Club and hosts an annual golf tournament, the Par-Tee Open, to raise funds “fore the kids.” The 2022 golf tournament raised $20,000+ and Chalanda Sherman and Carrie Chambers won the damn thing!

Sam enjoys long walks with her dog, Archie, any excuse to throw a party, home brewing beer, and occasionally embarrassing men on the golf course.

Sam left the corporate world and is currently patenting a new product and starting a business.

She is excited for the opportunity to recruit more women and grow our membership base. She’s looking forward to rolling out new recruiting and member retention programs.

This coming tax season will be her 35th year in public accounting and she has owned her own tax business for almost 20 of those 35 years. When you love what you do it does not seem like work!!

Kim has one daughter, three grand-daughters and another grand-daughter on the way.

After Kim stopped playing and coaching softball her parents and late husband talked her into trying golf which was about 8 years ago. Kim fell in love with the game!!! Two great friends encouraged Kim to join the LPGA Amateurs a little over a year ago and she has not looked back. The ladies in this group are wonderful.

Lynn Fleck – Communications Director


Lynn is a born and raised Texan, and wouldn't live anywhere but Texas (well, possibly NYC). She studied Architecture at Texas A&M, but changed to Advertising design and graduated from UT Austin. Lynn is an independent WordPress Web Designer/Developer, and spends her days building beautiful websites for mid-sized businesses.

A lifelong tennis player (now Pickleball fanatic), Lynn took up golf 25 years ago after her parents sifted through hundreds of Nancy Lopez clubs at a K-Mart sidewalk sale to piece together a full set of clubs. She later learned it wasn't actually a "full" set, when a helpful golfer informed her that she needed to use a sand wedge in a sand trap (who knew???).

Lynn joined LPGA Amateurs in 2017 and loves the myriad opportunities for golf, friendships, networking and more. She especially enjoys the opportunities to compete individually and on teams, play in regional and national events, and meet other members from across the state and country. She has enjoyed serving as the Communications Director since 2020.

Kelly Campbell – Handicap Chair

She has been involved in Cardiothoracic Surgery for the last 28 years.

She is deeply passionate about golf since the young age of 10. The sport quickly became more than just a pastime; it became part of her identity.

With her two children grown and flown, she finds herself at an exciting juncture in life. It's a stage where she can truly focus on her golfing ambitions and aspirations. She has been a member of the LPGA AMATEURS for 3 years and has enjoyed the introduction to more competitive play.

Volunteering as a Handicap Chair with LPGA AMATEURS is a wonderful opportunity for her to give back to the golfing community and contribute to the sport she is so passionate about.
