Participating as a volunteer can bring a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment in contributing to the success of our Chapter, provide opportunities to enhance your professional and personal skills, allow you to expand and deepen friendships, and—of course—it is a lot of fun! 

Our Chapter would not exist without all of our wonderful members and volunteers. Volunteer positions include: acting as a League Site Captain, helping run Chapter Events (golf, social & educational), and serving on the Chapter Board and/or one of the Board Committees.

Even if you only have time to volunteer at one event or for a couple of hours—we would love for you to get involved!

League Policies

Registration

All members must register for leagues online. Players who are not registered online will not be permitted to play on the league. Please contact the respective site captain for problems with online registration. If the league is full, members can contact the site captain to be placed on a waiting list.

 

Members who attend our Kick-off event have first preference in signing up for leagues. Members who register for leagues at Kick-off must also register online by midnight one week after Kick-off or they risk losing their spot on the league. After that, league registration is open to all members until the league is full.

 

Registration for second session leagues will open on the first of the month preceding the session start date (e.g., June 1 for a league starting in July).

Payments

Members can pay by credit card at the time of online sign-up.

Cancellations/ Refunds

Refunds for cancellations are subject to a 3% administrative charge to cover transaction fees. No refunds for cancellations will be given once the league numbers have been guaranteed to the golf course (normally the registration deadline). No refunds will be given after a league session begins. Please contact the respective site captain for more information.

Rain Out Policy

In the event that a league date is rained out, the rain check policy for that golf course applies. The Site Captain will work with the golf course to determine if a rain check will be given or if the date will be rescheduled.

Pairings

Site Captains will normally determine pairings for league play.

Substitutes

League players will not receive a refund for the sessions that they do not attend. If a substitute is found, the substitute should pay the league player directly. The fee should reflect the cost of play.

 

Site Captains are not responsible for collecting green fees from substituting players.

Guest Policy

A non-member may play in a league ONLY ONCE in a season as a guest. This includes substitutes, even if they are playing for another member and reimbursing the green fees. Further league participation requires membership in LPGA Amateur Golf Association.
