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.
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. 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.
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.
A registered, paid participant who fails to show up for their assigned tee time is ineligible for any reimbursement and may not request a refund from the Chapter. A no-show situation could be avoided if the participant finds and confirms a Substitute player.
Members who have registered/paid for an Event or League but find themselves unable to participate may find a substitute to take their place.
Event/League registration fees will be refunded—less credit card processing fees—to members or guests who request a refund prior to the event cancellation deadline. Refund requests submitted on or after the deadline due to ‘exceptional’ circumstances (injury, illness, death in the family, etc.) will be considered and resolved on a case-by-case basis.
Chapter Events/Leagues/Clinics may be canceled (or halted) due to unsafe weather or course conditions. Such cancellations are made jointly by the Chapter Manager and the golf course staff.
League Drop-In Policy
Members wishing to play a League date for which they are not pre-registered/paid (i.e. ‘drop in’) may do so only with advance permission from the League Manager .
The Chapter will focus its charitable financial and/or promotional support on organizations and initiatives that serve to grow and enhance the game of golf for women and girls, as well as those working to advance women’s health and welfare. Examples of the former include those aligned with HQ goals such as LPGA*USGA Girls Golf and The First Tee, as well as junior and scholastic golf programs for girls, Women’s Golf Day, and others. Examples of the latter include breast health causes such as Play for Pink and Breast Friends, which the Chapter has supported in recent years.
