You're Invited! LPGA Meet & Greet
Stars of the LPGA are coming out for a one-night event on October 4 at 6PM, to support Grace Godfrey, the one-year-old daughter of LPGA Tour veteran Jane Park and her husband Pete Godfrey. Grace was hospitalized last July with undiagnosed seizures and brain swelling in July. She suffered severe brain damage and will likely live a life in need of assistance.
The night includes a private meet & greet and games with the pros in the Topgolf hitting bays, a silent auction, signature cocktails and Hors D'oeuvres.
It's being held at the new 1776 by David Burke, featuring Topgolf Swing Suite in Morristown. It's not open to the public yet, so attendees will get a first look at this incredible new, hot-spot on the green.

2021 Season Closer
Saturday, September 25
Join us for the Season Closer with a Twist at Farmstead! This is the last golf event of the year so let's have some fun!
You will be paired with a partner to play 6 holes of Best Ball, 6 holes of Alternate Shot, and 6 holes of two-person scramble. Please note that partners will be assigned unless you are bringing a guest. You will need to have a handicap to play in the ladies competition or you can just play the course if you don't have a handicap. This is a fun competition with prizes to the top 2 teams with the lowest team scores. There will be contest holes for closest to the pin.
Best Ball: Partners hit their own ball and the lowest score or "best ball" is used as the team score.
Alternate Shot: Partners tee off on alternate holes then take alternate shots until they hole out for one team score.
Scramble: Partners tee off, choose which shot is best and play their next shots from the location of the best shot. And so on, until the ball is holed for one team score.
Cost includes golf, cart and prizes for contest holes and team competition! Join us for the 19th Hole after golf.
Time: 9:45 a.m. Registration Check-in / Tee times start at 10:30 a.m. Price: $82 Members / $92 Guests
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 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.
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.

A DAY OF GOLF TO CELEBRATE MARILY "MARIE" SARMIENTO
