Chapter News & Announcements
  • May Newsletter
    May newsletter can be found here. Check out our upcoming event registration information and more!

  • Traveling Match Play
    It's time to register for the Traveling Match Play League! Each participant will play at least 2 and up to 4 golf matches. You and your opponent will decide on a time and place to play, determine your course handicaps, and then report the results back to me. League requirements are that you be a member of the Philadelphia chapter of LPGA Amateurs and have a verifiable handicap. Susan Hunsicker will establish the exact format of the league, which will depend on how many play and how the handicaps are distributed.

    If you are interested in participating, please reach out to Susan Hunsicker via E-MAIL.

    Sign up by Friday, May 6 (maybe it will be warmer by then!). We hope to get started soon so we can finish by late July. Hope to hear from you!

  • IMPORTANT - Handicap Reminder!

    Our Chapter is now officially able to host and maintain USGA handicap indexes through the Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN). This service is only available to current members of the Philadelphia Chapter. Before deciding to obtain this service through our Chapter, please verify that your LPGA Amateurs membership is valid through 12/31/2022 and that you do not already have an active handicap service through Golfnet, GHIN, or any other USGA approved provider. If you have any questions about the status of your membership or need help verifying if you have an active handicap service, please contact Jane Chen directly for assistance. 

    After verifying the above, if you are interested in establishing and maintaining your handicap service through our Chapter, please do the following: 

    • Click https://buy.stripe.com/fZe172dRP3TM0Kc144 to access our secure electronic payment link. There is a nominal, annual fee of $20 per member if you elect to establish and maintain your handicap index through our Chapter

    • After receiving your payment confirmation, please forward your proof of payment to Jane Chen and Gail Irrgang to review and process your handicap application

    • Within 3 business days of receiving your proof of payment, you will receive an email from Jane or Gail with instructions on how to create a new GHIN account or confirmation that your old GHIN account has been reactivated

    A new GHIN account will not be established for you unless you notify us in writing that you want to maintain your handicap index through our Chapter and pay the appropriate fee.



  • Chapter League Registration Info

    Have you renewed your membership in 2022 yet? If not, now is the time to do so because league registration is now officially open! The White Manor league will begin on Monday, April 25, and the PineCrest league will begin on Wednesday, April 27. When registering for leagues, here are a few reminders:

    • Everyone needs to register for the leagues even if they've participated in the same league before. Each year, a new league registration website with updated dates, round sign-ups, games, information, etc. is built 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.
    • As registering for the league requires login validation via your active membership, everyone must register on their own.
    • 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 includes those who are inactive members of the Philadelphia Chapter, will need to contact the league coordinators to sign up for tee times since they will not be able to validate their active membership.

    • After accessing the unique link, you will be asked 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!
