  • EVENT NO-SHOWS & CANCELLATIONS
    As we look forward to our 2024 golfing season, the Board met on February 1st. One of the items brought up was the subject of how to win back our integrity with the various golf courses. We have not maintained a favorable relationship with many of them due to our members canceling their sign-up or simply no-showing on game day. As a result, we have so few members playing on a given day that we can no longer expect to be given special rates.  


    The board discussed paying for no-shows so that the golf courses do not lose money after reserving the tee times for us. However, this would be very costly to our club’s budget and is not sustainable. It would put our budget in the hole.

    As mature women, we need to take responsibility for our decisions. When we sign up for a tee time, we need to treat it as a “commitment,” just as we would a doctor’s appointment, required meeting, etc., and not just something to do if it’s convenient that day. If the deadline to cancel passes, and someone is unable to play, they either need to find a replacement or be willing to pay for their missed tee time slot. Of course, there are going to be occasions when illness strikes unexpectedly at the last minute, and exceptions would be made.

  • BOARD SECRETARY & OTHERS NEEDED TO KEEP OUR CHAPTER STRONG!

    Volunteers wanted for the 2023–2024 season

    Do you have "the heart" or talents that might benefit our organization? Do you have ideas on how our chapter could be improved? Would you enjoy the opportunity to connect with other like-minded members who truly care about our activities and future sustainability?

    Please consider being part of the team that will move our chapter forward for our next season. Board meetings happen only about 4-6 times year so the officer position commitment isn't huge. Directors and any committees meet as needed. Both types of positions are a great way for new and existing members to help ensure that our chapter remains strong and a positive option for female golfers in the Central Oregon area.

    If you think you might be interested, or would just like to find out more about what else is needed for the coming season, please contact Diane Kirpach at
    lpgaamateurscentraloregon@gmail.com

Thank you for your patience.
