LPGA Amateur Golf Association St. Louis Chapter is an all volunteer organization.  Like all things in life, you get back what you give and as a volunteer organization, our Chapter needs YOU for several upcoming events.  Please consider helping in one or more of the following ways:

Golf Expo Volunteers Needed:
Interested in attending the Golf Expo at St. Charles Convention Center for FREE?

In support of our partnership with the Golf Expo, we are asking our members to volunteer at the Expo event in exchange for our table at no cost to our chapter. It is a great deal for us! We need as many of our members as possible to volunteer for this event. There are a variety of positions and times available. Volunteers with the event get free tickets to the Expo and other perks! Click here for general volunteer opportunities at the Expo.

Our LPGA Amateurs chapter will also have a table at the Expo and a few volunteers are needed for that, too.  Please sign-up on MeetUp for: 
Friday 12-5 pm
Saturday 10 am - 12:30 pm or 12:30 - 5 pm
Sunday 12 - 4 pm and breakdown 

We need as many of our members as possible to volunteer for this event. Thank you again for your help and support at the Expo!

Gretchen Jenkins, Member Recruitment Director

Volunteers Needed for Youth Golf Program:
If you like working with boys and girls learning to golf, please consider volunteering for this worthwhile program.

Maria Palozola (who runs the Girl's Golf Program) is also a coach for the South Central CYC Golf Program for boys and girls.  It's a very large program and they need a lot of volunteers. The program runs from April through June and sessions are normally Saturdays and Monday/Friday nights at Banner Park (formerly Sunset Hills).   If you would like to volunteer at one or more sessions or if you know any high school students that need services hours, please contact Maria Palozola at maria@mariapalozola.com

The LPGA Amateur Golf Association St. Louis Chapter, founded in 1999, is one of many LPGA Amateur Golf Association chapters across the nation (and around the world).  Our mission is to provide opportunities for women to learn, play and enjoy the game of golf for business and for life.  To this end, our chapter sponsors several evening leagues, open weekend play dates, and networking and social events. We are also a proud sponsor of First Tee of Greater St. Louis, locally, and, through HQ, we support national organizations whose missions are to improve women's lives through golf.  I am proud to say that here in St. Louis, we have a diverse membership any way you look at it.   

HQ organizes our annual regional stroke play and team match play national  tournaments.  These tournaments are all flighted by handicap, so even novices can feel like a pro!  They also interact with the PGA and the golf industry to provide information and buying opportunities to our members.  HQ also makes it easy to find a group to play golf with when you are traveling or relocating. 

All of this doesn't happen without drawing on the abilities of our members and the annual dues we pay.  Locally and nationally we rely on members to fill various boards and committees, host an event here, make a phone call there.  Want to learn how to maintain a website?  Join our communications committee.  Want to organize a golf event?  Join our events committee.  You get the idea!  I like to say that an LPGA Amateurs St. Louis Chapter membership can help build your game, your resume and your circle of friends! Have I piqued your interest?

Check out this website where we have lots of information on our leagues, playdates, tournaments and more.

You can join LPGA Amateur Golf Association and check out our benefits at https://lpgaamateurs.com/memberships/

Not sure about joining?  Try us out by attending one or two of our many social events and golf outings.  Our biggest annual event is the Spring Kick-Off in April. There you will enjoy lunch, a silent auction, various vendors, gather information on spring clinics to prepare for one of our leagues and then wrap up the day with 9-holes of golf. Check out the upcoming events and playdates on this website. You are welcome to attend 2 events before becoming a member.  Ready to join now? Click Here

We look forward to seeing you on the golf course soon!

National organizes our annual regional stroke play and team match play national tournaments.  These tournaments are all flighted by handicap, so even novices can feel like a pro!  They also interact with the PGA and the golf industry to provide information and buying opportunities to our members.  National also makes it easy to find a group to play golf with when you are traveling or relocating.
