We'd Love Your Help !

Are you interested in meeting new people? Would you like to get more involved in our Chapter? Do you have enthusiasm, hidden talents, team spirit, bright ideas? If so, consider volunteering to help us thrive. Our Chapter runs on volunteers, and we can use everybody's help. You can assist with organizing our monthly and special events, serve on a committee, or consider joining our board. Pressed for time? We have lots of one-time opportunities for you, such as working at our booth during the LA Open, checking in players at our monthly events, soliciting items for our Holiday Party opportunity drawing, just to name a few. If you would like to help out, just LET US KNOW.

LA CHAPTER EVENT CANCELLATION POLICY

Please consider events to be a "go" unless specifically cancelled via email. In the event of rain, registered players will be notified by email the night before and day of. Updates will also be posted via Facebook. Golf courses hold us to our contract unless the golf course closes. Golf courses in SoCal rarely close due to rain.

Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way of golf. 
  • If you cancel 10 or more calendar days prior to the event, a refund will be provided, less a handling fee of $5. 
  • If you cancel less than 10 days prior to the event, there will be no refund, as by this time, we are contractually committed to the golf course.
  • You can get your money back by finding a replacement player and making direct arrangements with your replacement.
Finding your own Replacement Player
Events Committee will assist, but finding a replacement will be the responsibility of the player cancelling. We can assist by emailing you names of people on the waiting list. You may post on Facebook. If you find a replacement player, we ask you to make direct arrangements with each other to save on processing fees.

The Local Championship Qualifier, National Events, Weekend Getaways, & other special events may be subject to other refund policies, and will be specified within the event notification.

PAIRING REQUEST FAQ 

Can I request to be paired with with somebody?

You can . . . but why not leave your choice of playing partners up to the Pairing Fairy? One of the benefits of belonging to our Chapter is the chance to meet other golfers. Playing with other women can actually help your game. You might pick up some useful tips by watching how other golfers approach course management. And you could be that person who makes newcomers feel welcome from the start. Doing so will make a huge difference in helping new members assimilate into the group, insuring they will keep coming to our events.

So yes, you can make a pairing request, and we will try to accommodate you. But why not put your fate in the hands of our Pairing Fairy? You might just meet your new best friend!

We also raise money through opportunity drawings of donated gift items at special events. Please contact Donna Coleman if you would like to become a sponsor or donate gifts to raise $'s. Members have donated sun glasses, iPads, Fitbit, wines, gift certificates -- whatever you think will generate ticket sales!
