Chapter News & Announcements
  • April Newsletter
    It was wonderful to see so many new and familiar faces yesterday at our Tee Off Event at Downingtown Country Club! We started the morning with an update from Chapters leaders covering events, leagues, handicap services and more. Breakfast and the meeting were followed up with a fun but breezy round of golf. Congratulations to all our winners!
    
    Chapter leagues will be starting soon. This year we will have three weeknight leagues and our traveling match play league. Weekly league play is available at White Manor on Monday nights, PineCrest on Wednesday nights and Spring Hollow on Thursday afternoons. To register for one or all of our weekly leagues, please visit the ** league information on our Chapter's website (https://chapters.lpgaamateurs.com/events/chapter-leagues/PAPH)
    or check your email for the league registration email that was sent on April 7th. Everyone needs to register for 2024 leagues, even if you played in 2023. Please read and follow the instructions on the website.
    
    The Traveling Match Play league is a great way to play with different members of our chapter on a course of your choosing. This league is always a great mix of competition and fun. Please email Susuan Hunsicker at ** golfwithsusan@aol.com (mailto:golfwithsusan@aol.com)
    to register!
    
    The spring calendar is full with Chapter Golf Events. The Chapter website, monthly newsletter and event registration emails are all great places to keep track and register for upcoming events. We will again be partnering with our neighboring chapters for several events this season. The Central NJ chapter is hosting us for their Crossing the Delaware event on May 4th at Mountain View Golf Course and Coastal NJ has invited us to their Mother's Day event at Seaview Golf Course on May 12th. Our Chapter will be playing in a shotgun outing at Penn Oaks on Monday, May 20th.
    
    To register for Chapter Leagues, you need to be a member of the Philadelphia Chapter. See information to renew or join below. Chapter provided handicap renewals are due by May. If you do not renew your Chapter provided handicap by May 14th, you will be removed. See information to renew or sign up for our handicap service below.
    

    Downingtown Tee off

    More than 40 ladies gathered at Downingtown Country Club on Saturday, April 13th for the 2024 season kick off. The day started with a fantastic breakfast buffet. The room was abuzz with the sound of ladies re-connecting with old friends and making new ones. The program included a light review of Handicaps and how to get one through the chapter; an overview of the upcoming season's events including a few season-long competitions and detail on the chapter leagues. Andrew Barbin, a chapter sponsor, joined us to speak about his course Chesapeake Bay Golf Club in Rising Sun, MD and the Victory Golf Pass that he sells. For the season-long competitions, we will keep track of participation, birdies and pars at events throughout the season and award prizes at the season-ending event in October at Bella Vista. In the Participation category, we currently have 7 ladies tied with 2 events.

    For the pars and birdies, we haven't had any birdies yet (it was just too windy yesterday!) but we did have several pars - both Angela Mohan and Lisa Young had 6 pars yesterday! Here are the results for the Downingtown event:

    Flight 1 Low Net - Brandy Melewsky net 75, $25 gift card Low Gross - Cheryl Latourette 96, $15 gift card (note Cheryl's score was corrected after the round so the 96 is not reflected in Golf Genius.)

    Flight 2 Low Net - Donna Brown net 76, $25 gift card Low Gross - Sharon Gage Morris 105, $15 gift card

    Flight 3 Low Net - Lindsey Craig net 72, $25 gift card Low Gross - Diane Uber 112, $15 gift card

    Closest to the Pin - Prizes awarded to Cheryl Latourette 15'8"; Diane Uber 14'10"; Marcia Kazary 13'10" - each will receive a $15 gift card.

    Unfortunately something happened with long drive as by the time the final group arrived, there was a stake but no paper - maybe it blew away??? Sorry! Congratulations to all the winners! You will receive your gift cards electronically.

    Chapter League Registration:
    Detailed instructions on how to register for leagues and registration links are provided below. Please read and follow the instructions to successfully register for 1 or more of our Chapter's leagues, keeping a few things in mind: 
     
    • Everyone needs to register for the leagues even if they've participated in the same league before. Each year, a new league portal with updated dates, weekly round sign-ups, games, information, etc. is created so registering for the new league each year ensures the most seamless way to receive communications from the league coordinators and to enter scores in Golf Genius for the different weekly games. 
    • Registering for the leagues requires login validation via your active LPGA Amateurs Philadelphia Chapter membership. Weekly league play is a chapter specific benefit and validating with your active membership automatically lets our league coordinators know you are a member of the Philadelphia Chapter.
    • Everyone must register on their own; you cannot register a fellow active member. 
    • Registering for the leagues is required in order to sign up for weekly tee times.
    • We welcome guests to try out our leagues twice before we ask that they become a member of the LPGA Amateurs Philadelphia Chapter! Guests, which include those who have not renewed their membership yet, will need to contact the league coordinators directly to sign up for tee times since they will not have access to do this on their own.
     
    For White Manor, Pinecrest, and/or Spring Hollow league registration, please follow these directions for a successful registration:
     
    • The league registration links will take you to the league portal, which is set up through Golf Genius. Do not sign in. If you are already signed in, log out of Golf Genius and click the league registration link again. Registration via the Golf Genius app on your phone will not work because you will already be signed in to Golf Genius.
    • Click the grey "Register" button (this is located either on the left side or the bottom of the page, depending on your browser)
    • Validate with your LPGA Amateurs credentials (not Golf Genius credentials)
    • Complete required fields on registration page (i.e. Name, cell phone, LPGA Am ID, etc.)
    • Select box to acknowledge Golf Genius software policy
    • Click the grey “Register” button in the lower right corner of page
    • Await confirmation email that you have successfully registered for the league



    For those who already have a Golf Genius account login and password, that's all you need to do!
    For those who do not have a Golf Genius account login and password yet (this is usually for new LPGA Amateurs members or those who have never created a Golf Genius account), please follow these additional directions to complete your registration:
    • After receiving confirmation email that you have successfully registered for the league, please contact Becca Proetto rebeccacummings251@gmail.com and let her know for which league you successfully registered, but don't have a Golf Genius account
    • Becca will have an email sent to you from Golf Genius, which will have a unique link allowing you to create your Golf Genius account with a temporary password. Keep an eye out for this email and make sure to also check your spam folder
    • After accessing the unique link, you will be asked to set a new password for your new Golf Genius account
    • Having a Golf Genius account will allow you to use the Golf Genius app to receive notifications from the league coordinators, enter scores live during events and weekly league play, and also follow the live Leaderboard to see who is winning!
    If you have trouble registering for any of the leagues, please contact the league coordinator directly so that we can assist you as needed.

    The Traveling Match Play League
    League Coordinator: Susan Hunsicker    215-576-5473 (landline) 215-206-6139 (cell; texting is better than calling this number)  golfwithsusan@aol.com
     

    The Traveling Match Play League is a great opportunity to hone your match play skills, meet new people, and play new courses. In match play, you compete head-to-head with another golfer, one hole at a time. Your total score doesn’t matter. It’s a wonderful format for the inconsistent among us – and who can say their golf game IS consistent? Everyone who joins the league will be assigned up to four matches to play. The exact format will depend on how many sign up.

    For each match, you and your opponent will decide where to play and when, within a set time window, usually including three weekends. To encourage players to complete their matches, points will be awarded for playing within the designated time frame. There will also be points based on the outcome of the match. The league usually begins in early May and runs through July. The only requirement is that you have an official, verifiable handicap, such as through LPGA Amateurs or GHIN. So sign up now. Golf season is here!
