Northern New Jersey Chapter
Chapter Policies

GUESTS

If a substitute player is needed in a league and there are none available, a regular league player may bring a non-member ONCE as a guest substitute for that day. The substitute player pays the greens fee like any other substitute player. If a guest plans on substituting more than once, they are required to join LPGA-AGA NNJ  and pay the substitute fee. This can happen at any time during the season.

REFUND POLICY

Since LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey prepays the golf course in advance of the season, there will be no refunds. It is our policy that we will not provide refunds for missed events or to league members for league play.  Members are provided with a list of potential substitutes. Also, the league coordinator provides the league members with the amount golf cost per week.  If a league participant is unable to play in a given week, it will be up to the league participant to find a substitute and settle the cost of golf between the substitute and the league participant.  In the circumstance where we have a scheduled event that is on the same day as league play, it will be up to the league participant to find a substitute as outlined above.   The LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey chapter will not refund league participants for league play to enable them to participate in another event.

INCLEMENT WEATHER


 Call the golf course after 3:30 p.m. (for 9-hole leagues) to inquire whether league play will occur on that day. For 18-hole leagues, speak with your league coordinator to see how they want to handle it. All league cancellations are rescheduled after the regular season ends – a maximum of 2 times. This limit is based on course feedback.

LEAGUE ATTENDANCE

The LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey Chapter (unlike many other  Chapters) does not currently have a mandatory attendance policy.  Some Chapters require a certain percentage of league days played (including those played by alternates) because it enables the Chapter to improve tee times and secure courses from year to year.

We ask that you provide your league coordinators feedback if you are receiving minimal response when seeking alternates.

Your cooperation with the policy is greatly appreciated!

EVENT PAIRINGS

We are women with a passion for golf who come together for fitness, fun, friendship and professional networking.
We offer programs and events where you can meet and connect with engaging women of all ages, with all levels of golf experience, from a broad spectrum of career paths.

In keeping in the spirit of the mission of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey would like to initiate the following weekend events pairing guidelines:
 
When registering for an event, please indicate your ONE playing partner in the registration.  Please make sure that your playing partner will be registering for this event so that we can accommodate all requests.  Please take this opportunity to get to know others in the chapter, especially our new members. This will also make setting up the pairings and tee times less complex for the event coordinator.
