Non-members may participate as ‘guests’ in up to two Chapter golf/education events or league dates prior to joining LPGA Amateurs. Guests are assumed to be prospective members and their participation is intended to introduce them to the membership experience. Multi-day events such as Getaway Weekends are considered one event.
Procedure: Guests must register (or be registered by a member) and pay stated event/league drop-in fee prior to stated deadline.
Chapter Events/Leagues/Clinics may be canceled (or halted) due to unsafe weather or course conditions. Such cancelations are made jointly by the Chapter Manager and the golf course staff.
General Fee Policy
Registration fees for Chapter Events, Leagues, Clinics, etc. are based on contract pricing negotiated with a golf course/facility, plus a small upcharge to cover payment processing and admin costs (if done thru Golf Genius). The Chapter makes every effort to keep participation fees as low as possible and does not set fees to make a profit.
Members and guests must pay published participation fees regardless of any special status/rates they may be eligible for at a given golf course. This applies only to events posted and charged thru Golf Genius.
Missed Deadline Policy
Post-deadline registrations are strongly discouraged but may be possible on a case-by-case basis—at the discretion of the Event/League Manager and/or Finance Director.
