  • Wanted!!!!!

    LPGA Amateur Cup: Match Play Competition:

    We are looking for additional players to participate in MATCH play competition in the LPGA Amateur Cup!  The Manatee Chapter already has 2 teams of 8 players and needs additional players to round out Team #3...Awesome response!  Competitive golf is a great way to sharpen your skills, work together as a team and meet other LPGA-Amateur Golf Association members across the State and across the Country.  If you can make a commitment to the time and expense, it's an experience you should not miss!

    Competition is conducted in two stages of play:

    -Cup Qualifier - 18 holes of Four-Ball and 18 holes of Singles completed over 2 days to determine the teams that will advance to The Cup Finals. Qualifiers will be held Sept 21-22 at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, FL. If you team qualifies..then you move onto

    -National Championship Cup Finals : Same format as the Qualifier, completed over 2 days, held at Reunion Resort in Orlando Nov 1-2 .

    We are looking for additional players to round out a third Team.  If you are interested but need a partner, already have someone you wish to play with (handicaps within 6 strokes), or simply want to know more about it, please contact Donna Brown finance.lpgaamateursmanatee@gmail.com for additional information. 

    We will be holding an organizational meeting on 5/25/19 at Tara Country Club in Bradenton to discuss all details of play, registration dates and accommodations in Dayton Beach for the Regional Qualifier.

    The meeting will be at 10:00 AM in the meeting room next to the Pro Shop.  Please bring your notepad to take notes.  If you are interested in playing golf after the meeting, please let me know by 5/20/19 so I can make tee times for us.  Regardless, please let me know if you are attending.

    We currently have 2 full teams to register and are lacking 2 players to complete a third team.  Hopefully, we will fill the third team before 5/25/19.  

    If you have any questions, please contact me and PLEASE RSVP FOR THE MEETING.

    Thanks and see you soon.

    Donna Brown
