While playing golf was difficult to do earlier this year because of Covid-19, it became easier once summer rolled around. As a result, we gained 70 new members this year – and we want to celebrate your becoming members! The board invites you to join us for a Virtual Cocktail Hour on Wednesday December 9 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Bring your beverage of choice and some nibbles while we play a couple rounds of virtual bingo and you can share some of your golf successes!

New Members Who Join October – December 2020 Will Receive a 13 -15 Month Membership!
LPGA Amateurs is offering a special 13 – 15-month membership for anyone who joins for the first time between October through December 2020. Memberships will expire on December 31, 2021. This means new members will receive up to three months free (depending on the month you join). New members will pay full membership rates during this time: Classic - $120; Senior - $85; Young Professional and Military - $65. This offer is only valid for first-time new members and does not apply to members who are rejoining or renewing between October through December 2020. Current members who renew during this time will pay a pro-rated amount.
Update About Membership Renewal Dues in 2020
In the past, members renewed based on the month they originally joined. To simplify the renewal process, LPGA Amateur Golf Association is converting all members to an annual calendar cycle that will begin in January 2021. All member dues are being pro-rated based on an existing member’s renewal month and/or the month when a new member joins so all memberships will expire on December 31, 2020.
Members who renew in September 2020 will pay:
Young Professional: $21.66
