Q&A

Can I play at an LPGA Amateur Golf Association golf outing, league or event if I'm not a member
?
Absolutely!  We'd love to meet you.  As a non-member you may participate at up to two golf outings then we ask that you join our wonderful chapter.  However, this is specific to non-competitive events and excludes tournaments, which requires LPGA Amateurs Golf Association membership.

How do I update my member profile?
Go to http://www.lpgaamateurs.com Log in and select "My Information" from the menu on the left side of the page.  This information links up to the Chapter Website so only update required to keep your profile information up to date.

Will I get a refund if I cancel?
If you cancel prior 72 hours in advance to the registration deadline you will receive all but the any fee incurred by the chapter such as the paypal or any other fee. Last minute cancellations and cancellations after the registration deadline will depend on the circumstances. We usually have to guarantee payment for a specific number of participants.  If the chapter is charged for your participation we will not be able to refund your registration.

What if I register online, opt to pay at the course, but don't show?
We frequently allow members to pay at the event. While we extend this as a courtesy, please be aware that you are still obligated to pay if the Chapter incurs expenses related to your "no-show". Same goes for your guests.  We encourage you to bring guests and introduce them to LPGA Amateur Golf Association but if we incur unrecoverable costs we expect to be reimbursed.

Can I contact other chapter members through the Website?
Once you log in you will have full functionality on the website. Go to the Directory pull down.  From there you'll be able to find a Member.  Click on the name and you will have the option to email the person.

Can the public access my email through the Find a Member option?
No. Only chapter members who are logged in can access this information.  Log in is only available to members.

The vision to unify the six different handicap systems in use around the world into a single World Handicap System required the commitment of, and collaboration between, many organizations. All of the following organizations have provided their support to this important initiative and played their part in establishing the key principles, which shaped the proposals and drove forward the initiative to the point where a new World Handicap System can be introduced to the golfing world in 2020.

The Highway Series 2020 - Chapman or Pinehurst Format
Registration Fee: $90 per player (first-come, first-served basis 20 Max Players)
1000 Champions Drive, Daytona Beach, FL 32124

REGISTER HERE

Definition: This 2‐person team competition format is named after Dick Chapman, a
great amateur golfer who played The Masters 17 consecutive years. He "invented" the
game at Pinehurst Resort, hence it is alternately called Chapman or Pinehurst.

In the Chapman Pinehurst System, both players on the same team, tee off, then they
switch balls. Player A plays Player B's drive, and vice‐versa. Each player hits his or her
second shot. They then select the better of the second shots, and from that point until the
ball is holed they play only one ball in an alternate shot1 format. Got it?

USGA Description: Chapman or Pinehurst Format:

Allowance:
The partner with the lower Course Handicap receives 60 percent of Course
Handicap. The partner with the higher Course Handicap receives 40 percent of Course
Handicap. The side with the higher Course Handicap receives the difference between the
Course Handicap of the each side. The lower-handicapped side plays from scratch.

Example: Side A-B is comprised of Player A with a Course Handicap of 5 and Player B
with a Course Handicap of 10. Player A (5 x 60% = 3) + Player B (10 x 40% = 4) = 7
strokes for side A-B (3 + 4 = 7). Side C-D is comprised of Player C with a Course
Handicap of 14 and Player D with a Course Handicap of 17. Player C (14 x 60% = 8.4
rounded to 8) + Player D (17 x 40% = 6.8 rounded to 7) = 15.

Side A-B plays at scratch and Side C-D receives one stroke per hole on the first 8 allocated handicap-stroke holes.


Recommendations for public and private:

If you are looking for a refresher lesson, pretty much any course in Palm Beach County
has a “Get Golf Ready” program. Just call their Pro-Shop. Prices vary.
