    For those interested, please reach out to Mark directly at 402-305-5370 and state you are an LPGA member.

  • LPGA AMATEURS CHAPTER RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENTS:

    Any non-member participating in an LPGA Amateurs Omaha Chapter Weekly Play, League or Golf Event are required to sign a Release and Indemnification Agreement.  Forms will be available at any event where non-members can participate.

    LPGA Amateurs Members automatically acknowledge this release and indemnification when they join or renew.
  •  Local Chapter Qualifier and Scramble Info  

    WHO:  Entry is open to all LPGA Amateur Golf Association Chapter members in good standing who are amateur golfers and have a current verifiable USGA Handicap Index.

       

    o    To establish a handicap a player must post the minimum equivalent of five (5) 18- hole scores;

     

    o    A handicap is considered current if the equivalent of two (2) 18-hole scores are posted to their Handicap record in the current calendar year prior to the Handicap revision date (June 1, 2019).

     

     

    WHAT, WHERE and WHEN:  The LPGA Amateurs Championship is the largest women’s amateur golf tournament in the world.  It is played in three stages:

     

    o    Local Chapter Qualifier – an 18 hole qualifying round to be held Saturday, June 15th at Tregaron Golf Course in Bellevue, Nebraska, times to be determined.   Low Gross player and Low Net player in each flight, and the top 2 Scramble Teams advance to Sectional Play. 

     

    o    Sectional Championship Qualifier – an 18 hole qualifying round to be held Saturday, July 20th at Tiburon Golf Club in Omaha, Nebraska.  The Omaha Chapter is part of the section which includes Des Moines. Denver, Northern Colorado, Kansas City, Albuquerque and Omaha.  Since the Omaha Chapter is hosting this sectional event this year, it gives our Members the unique opportunity to advance to sectional play without travel costs. Low Gross player and Low Net player in each flight, and the top 2 Scramble Teams advance to Championship Finals. 

     

    o    LPGA Amateurs Championship Finals – a 36 hole final to be held  October 11th and 12th at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, California.

     

    The Championship consists of two competitive divisions:

     

    Stroke Play Division – eligible participants are placed in flights based on their USGA Handicap Index as of June 1, 2019. 

     

    Team Scramble Division – Teams consist of four (4) participants from the same Chapter.  The Team Handicap is calculated using the Ambrose method.  This method takes 50% of the average of the four handicaps rounded to the nearest whole number. 

     

     

    Not part of the completion is a Fun Scramble.  This is exactly what it says; any guest over 18 years and all Members are invited to come out that day and play.  We encourage members cheer on our participants and help congratulate our qualifying members. 

     

    Costs:  $55 per person for the competitive divisions.  This includes golf, cart, lunch and trophies.

                $55 per person for the Fun Scramble.  This includes golf, cart, lunch and prizes.  

    HOW:  Because of some of the changes at the National level this year, registration for either of the competitive events will be twofold:

     

    A.    Registration                May 29 is deadline

     

    1.     Go to lpgaamateurschampionship.com

    2.     Click on 2019 Local Championship Qualifier

    3.     Click on Omaha NE Chapter

    4.     Complete All Information (All of the information is required in the event the participant advances in the tournament). This software tracks player data, course data, handicap information and scores.  No payment happens at this point.

     

    Note:  Within the registration process there is a box that can be checked if you are a “senior” or “super senior” player.  This does nothing to the competition process; seniors do not get any special considerations on the course.  This merely allows the local, sectional, and national groups to “recognize” age.  Opting out just means that you don’t want that recognition during the trophy awards ceremony.  Player’s choice. 

               

    B.    Payment                  May 29th is deadline

     

    Go back to our chapter site www. lpgaamateursomaha.com and choose the event called “Pay for Local Qualifier”.  This will work through PayPal just like our regular events.

     

     

    To register for the Fun Scramble, go only to our local site and choose “Register and Pay for Fun Scramble”.  You do not need to provide all of the information that the competitors do; thus just go to the Chapter site. 

      

    For questions about the Local Chapter Qualifier contact Barb Plott Barb.Plott48@gmail.com or Aura Arriaga acasomaha@hotmail.com
