LPGA Amateurs - Austin, TX Chapter
Chapter News & Announcements
  • We had an awesome time at Shadowglen Golf Course in Manor despite the "tropical rainshowers". The course was in great condition and the competition was fierce! COngratulations to the low gross team of Jennifer Karpyshyn, Sue Anderson, Susan Belvin and Vicki Raymond for shooting a 73, and the low net team of Judi Blue, Becky McGillick, Caran Colvin and Lili Taufa with a 60. Longest Drive went to Susan Belvin and CTP went to Danielle Sorresso. And Caran won $190 in the 50/50 draw! 



  • We had an enjoyable time learning some tips and tricks for putting and chipping from Marci Brock at Live Oak golf course before heading out to Yaupon for a quick 9 holes to practice what we were taught. Congrats to Caran and Judi for winning closest to the pin and Katie for longest drive.

  • Oct.23-25 we had 30 ladies (and a few token men) head to the beautiful Tapatio Springs Resort for a fun weekend of golf and shenanigans. Big winners were: Sally Bowman (low gross), Spencer Unangst (low net) and Nancy Lubecker (3 out of 4 closest to the pins). The resort made sure everyone stayed safe and socially distanced.

Congratulations to all the winners, especially our lovely Best-Dressed Team of Lara Enzor, Kim Golden, Diane Lee and Gwen Neal. With all of the precautions that had to be negotiated due to COVID-19 a special thanks goes out to the organizing committee Judi Blue, Wendy Malloch and Cheri Hisaw.

  • Each month our chapter helps out the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program through The First Tee of Greater Austin by playing a few holes of golf with young ladies as they are beginning their golf careers. The ladies instruct the girls on proper etiquette and give them some tips on techniques for different shots but mostly just support them and give them a positive experience. Thank you to the ladies who volunteer their time for this worthwhile cause.

  • What's the second most favorite pastime of golfers? Gambling of course! We kicked off our 2020 season at Flintrock Falls Golf Club with a presentation on the new World Handicap System from our handicap chair Melinda Hipp and then dove right in to the dice and cards! Our silent auction and 50/50 raffle raised $500 for the Chapter.

  • Our AimPoint clinic in February taught us how to read the slope of the green and decide where to aim our ball in order to sink more putts. Hope to see some lower scores from these ladies in the future! If there is enough interest we may do this clinic again in the Fall.

  • Our first event of the 2020 season was a Meet and Greet for old and new members held at Cover 3 downtown. Our new board was introduced and the schedule of events for this season was released. Guests could order their own food and create interesting cocktails at the Mimosa Bar. We all had a great time and hopefully we got some new members signed up for this season!

  • On Saturday Nov. 9 we got together to celebrate the end of another great season of golf. To mix it up we decided to hold a tail-gate party outside The Darrell K Royal Texas stadium to cheer on the Texas Longhorns. We had delicious BBQ brisket with all the fixin's and plenty of adult beverages to go along with it. We opened the event up to friends and family as well to make it extra special.
