Reservation & Cancellation Policy
Please be respectful of registration deadlines - deadlines are given because of the need for the number of attendees to any given event, by a certain date for the venue or sponsor. Reservations for events sponsored by the MN Metro Chapter are available on a first come, first serve basis. Advance payment by check or credit card is required at the time reservation is made. Exceptions to this policy must be arranged with the event coordinator prior to the registration deadline in order to pay upon arrival. Since our events require a confirmed count of golfers, diners, etc. to the host facility, once that final count is provided, the chapter is committed and is billed according to that count. If you are unable to attend an event, you must contact the event coordinator to cancel. While the cancellation date may vary by event, we ask that each member contact the event coordinator as soon as you know that you will not be attending. If you have paid in advance and cannot attend, your money will be refunded ONLY if you have notified the event coordinator according to the published cancellation date. If you have arranged to pay at the event, and do not provide adequate cancellation notice, you will be billed.
The MN Metro Chapter recognizes that bringing guests to chapter sponsored events is a great way to share information about the organization as well as the game of golf. Many of the events - golf and networking - sponsored by the chapter are open to guests. Guests may be asked to pay a premium fee for these events. In addition, the MN Metro Chapter asks that a guest attend no more than two (2) events in a season before joining LPGA Amateurs. This policy is intended to encourage guests to join the chapter in order to receive the many membership benefits
Payments in Golf Genius
When registering for leagues, clinics or any events through the chapter's website links, your credit card information will be secured as a token. Golf Genius stores the token from the bank that represents the card data. They send the card for authentication and authorization and the bank sends back a token. When it’s time to charge the card, they send the token to the card company to trigger the payment. The payment is automatically deposited into the chapter's account.
LPGA Amateurs Golf Association has not had any issues with using a waitlist and charging cards at a later date in any of the Association level events or Chapter registrations. Here's couple of things that may happen if your credit card does not process:
1. A person’s card number changes (due to a re-issue from lost/stolen card). In those situations, the only remedy is to cancel the registration in Golf Genius and have the person re-register with a new card.
2. A number was entered incorrectly or duplicated itself, whether it was the card number, date or CVV.
If there is an issue with your entry and it stalls in the system, we will send an invoice to you your email and you can pay through the link provided.
After you pay, your payment will be automatically deposited into Billhighway (our chapter's new financial suite management platform).
Notifications will be sent when the registrant is moved to the confirmed list and following your payment.
