Chapter News and Announcements
  • Patti Liscio our own chapter member and LPGA teaching professional has a girls golf club for youth. She is looking for some of our members to assist her in teaching these young girls how to play golf and be mentors for  them. Call Patti at (559) 266-3015 if you can assist her.
  • It was so good to start the season with the kickoff dinner highlighting all the new leagues, future clinics, playdays and tournaments we will get participate in this year. Linda Steinert our Cal Cup Captain displayed the 2018 Trophy the Fresno chapter won last year. . Linda is leading our team this year in Sacramento  and is promising to return this trophy back to Fresno.
    Part of our chapters mission is to give back to our community. Last night all our members brought a teddy bear to give to the Clovis Police Department for children who are experiencing a traumatic event. Chris Taliaferro from the Clovis PD explained how all of their police officers carry these bears in their squad cars and it helps these children cope by having something to hold while they are in crisis. Chris said, " It is amazing how much these soft bears help these children." 
    Special thanks to Nanci Mathers, Jodi Asher, Denice Chambers for organizing the event. Also thanks to Kathy Gannon and Ann Hamilton for the flower arrangements. And thanks to all the women who attended -making sure we have a bright season ahead.

Phone It In!  
Volunteer to be part of our "PHONE TREE" Posse

We are in need of 10 to 15 volunteers to be part of our Phone Tree Posse.  Make telephone calls to fellow LPGA Amateur members and personally invite their participation in golf, education and special events throughout the year.

I'll take up very little of your time plus you'll have the opportunity to engage with members you might not otherwise - and might even find some new golfing partners!  Most importantly, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you made an important contribution to the continuing success of the Fresno Chapter of LPGA Amateurs Golf Association.

Here are the answers to some questions you may have:

WHEN?  "Phone Tree Posse" volunteers will occasionally (3-4 times per year) be asked to call 10-15 chapter members to invite and encourage their participation in a specific event - for example, the Annual Kickoff Brunch or a sponsor's social event.

WHERE?  Calls can be made from the comfort of your home - or anywhere else - that works for you.

WHY?
  We want to ensure that EVERY member benefits from all the events, special activities and FUN we have to offer. .  We particularly want to reach out to new members so that they feel welcome, understand the various events and have an opportunity to ask questions.

So, what are you waiting for!
