  • HANDICAP Sign up - What to know and who to contact

    Wondering why you can’t get into GN21 to log your spring scores?  If you have not logged into the new website / platform for the LPGA Amateur Golf Association  please do in order to access information and GN21 for posting scores. 

    All LPGA Amateurs Spokane Inland NW members have the opportunity to obtain a handicap index through GN21 at no additional cost. Golfers keeping score are strongly encouraged to obtain a Handicap Index by taking advantage of a key LPGA Amateur Spokane Inland NW member benefit. (until the end of 2022) This system is available via the LPGA Amateur Golf Association members-only area (after logging in, you'll see a link to the "Handicap" area along the left side).  Powered by GolfNet, GN21 is a full featured system that enables all members to obtain an official USGA handicap.  This Member benefit is available for the 2019 Season - good thru December 31, 2022, as long as you had used the feature as late as the 2021 season.  After the end of 2022, this feature will no longer be available

    Your Spokane/INW LPGA Amateur Chapter has been working on an alternative for our members to use immediately for those that do not have a handicap, and also to be available to our members who have been using GolfNet. As stated above, GolfNet will no longer be available after December 31, 2022. Please see below what is now available to you, our members.

     

    WHY HAVE A HANDICAP? Establishing a golf handicap (GHIN) levels the playing field, regardless of your ability. It opens up the opportunity to play in numerous events, both social and competitive.   Beginning this year (2022), our Chapter is offering the option of establishing a USGA GHIN through Washington Golf.  The cost is $36 for the year, and you receive the benefits offered by WA Golf, including Washington golf discounts, opportunities for competitive play as well as state wide fun play at various courses   For more information regarding this new feature, USGA GHIN, please contact Heather Delanoy at handicap.spokanelpgaamateurs@gmail.com

     


  • 2022 Epson Tour at Circling Raven

    The Circling Raven Championship is an amazing golf tournament featuring the future stars of the LPGA tour. It is part of the Epson tour, the road to the LPGA.

    Last year, 12 of our members volunteered for this tournament and had a great time working at various stations and helping to make the tournament a great success. There were over 200 volunteers !

    Once again, the Epson Tour is coming to Circling Raven Golf Course and again they are in need of volunteers. There are many benefits in volunteering. Not only do you get to watch some outstanding golf from the women participating, there are benefits given to the volunteers. Last year we were given a free round of golf at Circling Raven, as well as participation in a volunteer only golf tournament sometime after the tournament.

  • President's Message

    ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~
    From our 2021-22 Chapter President - Valarie Hartfield
    ***

    I hope this message finds all of you in good health.  As I write this on February 1st, the expected high temperature for today is 50 degrees.  Similar to most of you, this fills me with anticipation that we may have early spring golf!  As we wait for the day we can hit the links, grass hasn’t been growing under the feet of  your volunteer board as they have been very busy planning and scheduling our numerous golf events. Soon we will be sharing with you what’s planned so you can update your calendar.  Stay tuned!

    In the meantime, you can stay up-to-date with what’s going in the world of women’s golf and the numerous benefits the LPGA Amateur Golf Association offers members through the corporate newsletter, The Front Nine, which arrives via email.  The February 1st edition offers links to scholarship information, CardioGolf and Yoga for Golfers virtual sessions, membership renewal, and so much more. I signed up for CardioGolf so hope to see you virtually.

    Speaking of membership, have you renewed for 2022?  Don’t forget that all memberships now have a January 1st renewal date.  Also, don’t forget to let all your friends, family, business associates, and other acquaintances know about the fun of playing with our group. We offer so many options: after work, Tuesday morning and Saturday golf. There is a “Member get a Member” contest at the moment with some great prizes!  It started October 1st and runs through June 30th so check out the details in The Front Nine. 

    That’s it for now but keep your fingers crossed for early spring golf as we are excited to see all of you! 

    Cheers!

    Valarie Hartfield
