REGISTER FOR YOUR HANDICAP
If you haven't already done so, why not register to obtain a handicap? A handicap is one way to keep track of your progress, and there might be an event you want to play in that requires a handicap.

Our LPGA Amateurs Northern New Jersey Chapter offers two options for obtaining a handicap: GolfNet or GHIN (Golf Handicap Information Network).

GolfNet
GolfNet is included with your LPGA Amateur membership. GolfNet is good for all LPGA Amateurs events, but you might need GHIN for state tournaments. If you are an active member of the Northern NJ Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs and want to obtain a handicap through GolfNet, contact Handicap Chair Sue Stager.  She will activate your account and provide you with the info you need to begin posting your scores.

GHIN is a service offered by the USGA to regional golf associations, such as the New Jersey State GolfGHIN Association (NJSGA). Members of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs can obtain or renew GHIN through our chapter. Having GHIN will register you with the NJSGA, making you eligible to participate in NJSGA tournaments and events.* The cost for this service is $31. To obtain, renew or transfer a GHIN account,  REGISTER HERE.

For additional information regarding GHIN check out the Handicap page on our website.


You must be an ACTIVE MEMBER of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs to register for League Play and GHIN. Please click here and log into the Member Clubhouse to renew your membership for 2021.

Chapter News and Announcements
  • Congratulations to the Cardshark Scramblers and the Strokes of Luck, our amazing representatives from LPGA Amateurs Northern NJ Chapter at the LPGA Amateurs Scramble Open, held on May 28th and 29th in Pinehurst.  Both teams competed among the best and had outstanding performances. 

    Always a strong scramble team, Jane Egan, Mindy Oosteen, Annette Owens and Karen Stepsus of the Cardshark Scramblers once again brought their “A” game, finishing 3rd in their fight and 13th overall in the field of 66 teams. Playing in competition for the first time together as a scramble team, the Strokes of Luck foursome of Fern Chan, Susan Nostrand, Janet Solberg and Jan Tomasiewicz also had a terrific showing, as they finished 4th in their flight and 23rd overall!

    Fellow chapter member Pat MacIsaac rounded out our representatives from Northern NJ, cheering on our ladies and partaking in golf and fun throughout the trip. In the words of Jane Egan “Eight days in a golfers paradise with great friends was a priceless experience.” We bet it was!!

  • Despite the chilly weather, a great day of of golf, learning and fun was experienced by attendees of our 2021 Golf School! Mary Beth Kohberger was a fantastic and thorough instructor, covering all aspects of the game, including mental, in the 3 hour lesson. She gave equal attention to all of the participants, joining them on the course for nine holes, spending time with both foursomes and helping them practice what they had learned.  Mary Beth has more than 30 years of experience teaching students of all skills levels, and we hope to work with her again at future events.  Special thanks to Denise Gill and Fran Lapinski, who organized and coordinated this fantastic event.
