Non-members may participate as ‘guests’ in up to two Chapter Events or Chapter 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.
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. 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/Clinic 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.
Should the Chapter cancel an Event, League or Clinic after registration has opened, registrants will receive a full refund.
Should a player wish to cancel their participation in an Event, League or Clinic, their registration fee will be refunded—less credit card processing fees—if they request a refund prior to the posted event registration deadline. Refund requests submitted 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 cancelations are made jointly by the Chapter Event/League/Clinic 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 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.
