  • LPGA Amateurs Metro Detroit Chapter Members,
     
    Hoping that you are healthy, or getting back to healthy, as we all navigate the COVID-19 global pandemic.  As you know, our latest Michigan direction is for most of us to stay at home and for most businesses to close.  
     
    2020 CHAPTER EVENTS 
    In this regard, we have decided to cancel the Skills Clinic that was planned for May 3.  This is in addition to the April 4 Season Kickoff event that has already been announced as cancelled (and the March 21 Winter Swing TopGolf event). All events on our schedule, as well as the cancelled Skills Clinic, will be revisited once we know it is safe to do so.
     
    2020 CHAPTER LEAGUE PLAY
    Golf courses are currently closed and each of our league locations are evaluating how to ensure they are following guidelines from the CDC and local officials, once they reopen.  All changes made, such as golf cart use, keeping rakes out the bunkers, etc., will be communicated at a later date.  
     
    Given that we do not know when/if our 2020 golf season will begin, our League Registration process is currently on hold.  Once we have a better understanding on timing, we will make any necessary adjustments to our individual course schedule and pricing, and begin registration for leagues.  Be on the lookout for communications, as we expect the registration period to be shortened.  
     
    League Players from 2019: 1)  Be on the lookout in the next couple of days for an "Intent Survey".  For planning purposes, this will help us know whether you want to return to the same league that you played in last year, or if you plan to choose a different league.  2) Depending on when we can start registrations, and how long the registration period will be, note that a pre-registration period for returning league players (new this year), may need to be shortened or eliminated.
