Q&A

Can I play at an LPGA Amateur Golf Association golf outing, league or event if I'm not a member
?
Absolutely!  We'd love to meet you.  As a non-member you may participate at up to two golf outings then we ask that you join our wonderful chapter.  However, this is specific to non-competitive events and excludes tournaments, which requires LPGA Amateurs Golf Association membership.

How do I update my member profile?
Go to http://www.lpgaamateurs.com Log in and select "My Information" from the menu on the left side of the page.  This information links up to the Chapter Website so only update required to keep your profile information up to date.

Will I get a refund if I cancel?
If you cancel prior 72 hours in advance to the registration deadline you will receive all but the any fee incurred by the chapter such as the paypal or any other fee. Last minute cancellations and cancellations after the registration deadline will depend on the circumstances. We usually have to guarantee payment for a specific number of participants.  If the chapter is charged for your participation we will not be able to refund your registration.

What if I register online, opt to pay at the course, but don't show?
We frequently allow members to pay at the event. While we extend this as a courtesy, please be aware that you are still obligated to pay if the Chapter incurs expenses related to your "no-show". Same goes for your guests.  We encourage you to bring guests and introduce them to LPGA Amateur Golf Association but if we incur unrecoverable costs we expect to be reimbursed.

Can I contact other chapter members through the Website?
Once you log in you will have full functionality on the website. Go to the Directory pull down.  From there you'll be able to find a Member.  Click on the name and you will have the option to email the person.

Can the public access my email through the Find a Member option?
No. Only chapter members who are logged in can access this information.  Log in is only available to members.
