  • The Biggest Loser - LPGA Amateur Style! Read how participating in this year's competition motivated NNJ Member Kim Maycott
     This year's Biggest Loser competition has come to a close. The competition began on June 10 and participants were grouped into four divisions, based on their starting handicap index: 

    • Division I: 6.5 to 21.7
    • Division II: 22.0 to 26.1
    • Division III: 26.2 to 32.0
    • Division IV: 32.1 to 54.0

    Congratulations to Kim Maycott who placed 4th in her division and 11th overall.  According to Kim the best part was that the competition motivated her to play more this year and enabled her to lower her handicap by over 7 strokes!  

    If you aren't in the habit of keeping a handicap and posting your scores, you might want to consider it for next year.

  • Northern NJ/Westchester Interchapter Event on Saturday, August 20 at Crystal Springs
    It was a hot and steamy day on a crazy Robert von Hagge designed golf course (the Crystal Springs Golf Club course at the Crystal Springs Resort) where the 5 players from Westchester defeated the 6 players from Northern New Jersey in a friendly match play competition. Prentiss Shaw won closet to the pin (3 feet) on the (picturesque) par three 11th hole and Robyn Lindsay took home the prize for straightest drive. Prizes were awarded in the Willow Room at the clubhouse at the Grand Cascades Lodge and 8 of the 11 players proceeded to the Irish Cottage Inn for sustenance and libations. A good day overall.  Thanks to those who attended the Saturday, August 20th event.

    The Northern NJ Chapter’s "Tee Off to the Green" was everything we could have hoped for and more! Friendly chatter filled the air as we kicked off our 2022 season at Farmstead Golf and Country Club, where 18-holes of golf was followed up by a fun putting contest. The festivities continued inside, where we ate, drank, shopped, and laughed along with old and new friends alike. Congrats to all the prize winners and thank you to everyone that participated, especially the event organizers and volunteers!

  • 'Tis The Season! Read about our Holiday Party.

    LPGA Amateurs NNJ Chapter members gathered Wednesday, Dec 1 for our annual holiday party, held this year at Portobello Banquets in Oakland, NJ.

    After getting settled in with drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres, the event kicked off with new president Stefanie Thornton welcoming all attendees. A Rose Ceremony followed, thanking all the departing board members for their service and accomplishments. Roses were also presented to the current board and chairs, as well as to our league coordinators. Introductions to our newly elected board followed. It was clear our chapter has been blessed with an amazing group of volunteers! 

    The night continued with a delicious buffet dinner, music, dancing and prizes. The proceeds from our 50/50 will be presented to JBWS. 

    What a great way to wind up the golf season, kick off the holiday season and celebrate wonderful friendships within our chapter! Happy Holidays to all! See you in 2022!
