  • Volunteer with First Tee – Greater Richmond on March 27th

    First Tee – Greater Richmond Needs Us on March 27th!

    First Tee – Greater Richmond facilitates 5th Grade field trips for 17 Henrico County elementary schools during the 2022-2023 school year.  Each of these field trips usually includes around 80 students who are exposed to the game of golf through a variety of fun games and golf activity stations.

    All of the golf training and swing cues are provided by First Tee staff, but staff relies on the help of volunteers during each of the field trips to act as game leaders, mentors, and role models to make the students’ experiences seamless, easy, and fun! 

    That’s where we get involved!  Kelly Brown, a fellow Chapter member and First Tee – Greater Richmond senior staff member, has asked our LPGA Amateurs Richmond Chapter to provide 12 volunteers to assist with a field trip of 5th graders visiting Belmont Golf Course on Monday, March 27th, 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. (Arrival time about 8:10 a.m.)

    This would be an amazing way for our Chapter to socialize, give back to the community, and act as strong role models.  And we can always organize lunch together afterward!

    Ready to join in the fun?  Email your name and contact details to Lissa at

    Thank you in advance!

    Introducing the RVA Capital Cup

    The 2023 season has a new adventure waiting for you.  The LPGA Amateurs RVA Chapter is introducing the RVA CAPITAL CUP, an annual points competition between LPGA Amateurs RVA Chapter members.  All members are encouraged to participate regardless of their handicap index or experience level. 

    Participants must pay a $26 entry fee, have a valid GHIN handicap index, and play in a minimum of four out of seven designated RVA Capital Cup events to be eligible for cash prizes at the end of the season.

    Players will be grouped into flights by handicap.  Points will be awarded for First Low Gross and First Low Net after each of the seven events.  Players and point standings will be recognized on the Chapter website on a monthly basis. 

    Remember, all Chapter members can participate regardless of their handicap or experience!

  • Discontinuation of the LPGA GolfNet Handicap Service

    The LPGA’s GolfNet service was discontinued as of January 1, 2023.  If you are one of the roughly 50 members in our Chapter that have been using the LPGA GolfNet Handicap Service to calculate your handicap, we strongly recommend you act now to secure your handicap and previous scores. 

    We suggest you consider one of these three options: 
    • Join the Virginia State Golf Association (VSGA). All VSGA membership options include handicap indexing. This membership is separate from your LPGA Amateurs Chapter membership and provides other benefits, OR
    • Transfer your handicap to a local golf course affiliated with the VSGA, OR
    • Consider signing up for the VSGA handicap service through First Tee of Greater Richmond, where we ran our Tuesday evening leagues and hosted our Mondays in May.
    Please refer to a Chapter email distributed to you on Thursday, December 15th, for further details. Contact Jeanne Biggerstaff, Sr Coordinator, LPGA Events, at if you have trouble accessing your account.
