At To The Tee Golf, Mary Beth Kohberger teaches people to have fun through golf. Her holistic approach to golf instruction goes beyond swing mechanics.

In 1987 she became the first female elected to the NJ section of the PGA.

REGISTER FOR YOUR HANDICAP


Spring is around the corner and that means golf season is coming. Among other things, maybe it’s time to get 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 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 Golf 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.

GHINIMPORTANT:  The only requirement to activate your GHIN handicap is that you must be an ACTIVE MEMBER of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs. please click here and log into the Member Clubhouse to renew your membership for 2021.

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

What if you could play golf free from negative thoughts, emotions and beliefs?

Imagine how you will feel at the end of every round of golf if you absolutely stayed in a positive mindset. If that is a goal you strive for we are pleased to share this unique opportunity from LPGA Professional Debbie O’Connell with you.
