Saturday League at Shula's Golf Course

League Season begins in October and usually runs through April at Shula's Golf Club, 7601 Miami Lakes Dr, Miami Lakes, FL. There is a one time league fee of $35.  A valid USGA handicap is required to compete in league play.  Miami LPGA Amateur members do not have to join the league to play each week, however that member will not be eligible for prizes.  Weekly green fees will be approximately $32.00 (tax included).  Tee times will vary and will be announced by email a week prior to play.  Non-LPGA Amateur guests are welcome but must pay current guest rate, and will not be eligible for prizes.  Non-LPGA Amateur Golf Association guests are limited to three events/league play per year.  Weekly emails will be sent each Saturday for registration for the upcoming Saturday.

Do I have to be a good golfer to join the LPGA Amateurs?

No, you do not have to be a good or experienced golfer to join any chapter of the LPGA Amateur Golf Assn. In fact, many of our members are beginning golfers who have improved since joining, and they remember what it was like to be a new golfer.

We recommend new golfers take lessons from a PGA or LPGA golf professional.  Check out local golf instructors here!

Once new golfers have taken a lesson series, our chapter tries to provide an environment where women can learn to play golf without pressure, pairing new golfers with experienced players willing to mentor them. We schedule league play at several different local courses covering a range of difficulty to help accommodate golfers of all skill levels.

Pace of Play

Being a short hitter isn’t the cause of slow play, being inaccurate however does add time to the round. What you do – or fail to do – between shots sets the pace of play, not the number of strokes you take.  Following the guidelines below will keep things moving along smoothly, earning you the approval of the marshal and the gratitude of the group behind you. 

Things you can do to keep up the pace of play:
• Before starting the round, load up your pockets with tees, divot repair tool, ball markers and an extra ball.
• Play “ready golf”: whoever is ready to hit, goes ahead – especially shorter hitters who can’t reach the group ahead.
• Develop a concise pre-shot routine and limit the number of practice swings you take.
• If you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, hit a provisional ball, so you don’t have to go back.
• Limit the time you search for a lost ball.
• When riding a cart, drop off your partner at her ball and proceed to yours. If you’re the one riding along, take several clubs with you and start walking down the fairway after you’ve hit instead of waiting to be picked up.
• If you’re playing into the green, take your putter with you as well so you don’t have to go back to the cart.
• Leave your bag or cart on the side of the green that is towards the next tee.
Study your putting line while others are putting and hole out instead of marking your ball.
• The first one to put out, picks up the flagstick and replaces it when everyone is done.
• Don’t linger on the green to mark your score card. Proceed to the next tee and mark cards there.

And the best way to keep up the pace of play? Always, ALWAYS keep up with the group ahead of you!
