LPGA Amateurs Palm Springs – Golf Event Cancellation Policy
Effective immediately - October 19, 2023

 If you have registered and paid for a golf event, it is your responsibility to keep Tina Fleisler, Carolyn Urban OR the event captain informed immediately if your schedule changes.

 Chapter policy on cancellations:

  • If you cancel from three days in advance up to the day of play, you will not be reimbursed. The Chapter Board encourages members to try to find someone to take your spot if/when you realize that your schedule will cause you to cancel after the Chapter has guaranteed your participation. The person that fills your spot can reimburse you for the greens fee. If this occurs, you must notify the golf events co-chairs OR the event captain ASAP.
  • In the case of a medical emergency that occurs within the above timeframe, the Chapter will reimburse the player half of the golf fee.
  • If you forget about the event and/or don’t show up, your fee will not be reimbursed.

Explanation: The Chapter experienced cancellations last season – most on the morning of play -- when it was too late for the golf course to waive a player’s greens fee.

Since COVID, golf course managers have become stricter about tee times and cancellations.  The vast majority ask the Chapter to GUARANTEE the number of players 8 DAYS IN ADVANCE. This means that the Chapter still has to pay for any player who cancels after that guarantee. While some golf course managers used to let the Chapter cancel a player within 48-72 hours, most will no longer do so.
