Chapter News and Announcements
  • We Love our Members!
    Ventana Canyon's Mountain course was the place to be last Sunday.  Our game of the day was a relaxing 4-person best ball. It's certainly nice to know that you don't have to sparkle on every hole...
    And speaking of sparkling - congratulations go out to our winners!
    1st Place: Caren Bidegain, Cathe Kropp, Georgiana Plank and Liddy West
    2nd Place: Chung Coles, Linda Stratton, Connie Vaughan and Sheila Woolsey

    Closest to pin awards went to Caren Bidegain and Sheila Woolsey. 


    Way to go ladies!

    Watch out for the Return of the DESERT DOVE!

    Long-term members will recall that years ago the Tucson and Phoenix Chapters of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association (then known as EWGA) met every year to battle it out for the odd but awesome Desert Dove trophy. This match play event, held in Casa Grande, was always a great time! Now that Phoenix has a chapter again, we're in discussions to bring back the tournament, and get back to meeting members of our sister chapters! This year, we may even get desert club Palm Springs to join in. The preliminary play date is November 21. Stay tuned for more details!

Get Rewarded for Participation

Thank you to those who have participated in our events this year. It certainly has been challenging to hold them in a safe, yet entertaining way. Due to the COVID-19 crisis and its effect on attendance, we have decided to suspend our participation prize for this year. We'll just add it to the raffle pile when we hold our annual dinner! 

In line with LPGA Amateurs Chapters around the country, we're going to broaden our outreach, publicize our events more widely, and welcome guests at all events.  All levels of golfers who want to learn, play, and enjoy golf for business and fun are welcome to play at chapter events.  Your chapter hosts golf outings, social, and networking events throughout the year.  Chapter members are provided with the opportunity to participate in local, regional, and national championships and events.  Whether you’re a beginner taking your first lesson or an experienced lifelong golfer, you’ll find a warm welcome from our members. 

Five reasons to join:
-  Largest amateur women's golf organization in the US
-  Connect with new friends who share your love of the game
-  Make useful business contacts
-  Save $$ and let us organize your round at courses across the Tucson area
Have fun!!

Volunteer
Your chapter is a volunteer-run organization. Volunteers serve on the board to plan and hold many events throughout the year, but it takes many volunteers behind the scenes to make our chapter a success. The Tucson Chapter welcomes volunteers to  work with board members, plan and manage events and assist tournament directors on competition days. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Terry Rosales at williecat1814@aol.com.
