Is there still a higher “initiation” price for new members?
No. We have eliminated the $25 additional initiation fee for new members. The “join” price is now the same as the “renewal” price.
What is an At Large member?
An At Large member is someone who belongs to the association but is not located near a Chapter. They receive the national benefits that other members receive, but they are not part of a local Chapter and so do not receive any of the local Chapter benefits.

The new price is $65 for all ages, both active and retired military.

We are so glad that you decided to join the world’s largest amateur women’s golf association! You have opened the door to many, many golfing opportunities and to a new group of women who you soon will be calling friends. The purpose of this section of our web site is help you become familiar with some of common practices and to become more comfortable with our Chapter. Please submit questions and we will publish answers here on subjects of general interest. Check back often as we’ll be adding items frequently.
One of the biggest challenges people face in a new situation is getting to know peoples’ names and attaching names with faces. Here’s a couple of hints:
You will hear members talk about “ready golf”. We practice that in our chapter and try hard to maintain a brisk pace of play. That doesn’t mean that we don’t understand that newer golfers might require more time. We were all beginners once. There are also some guidelines here for “The Fun of Golf” that new golfers might want to follow. Just remember that you can only post your scores to maintain a handicap when you are playing by the formal rules of golf.

This year, our chapter has designated three charities to support for the 2019 season: EquiCenter, BE uninTimidated and Coldwater Women's & Children's Residential Home. Our chapter will have numerous opportunities during the season to support these worthwhile charities. Please be sure to visit their websites to learn more about them and how they impact so many members of our community and beyond.
EquiCenter’s mission is to foster the personal growth and individual achievement of people with disabilities, at-risk youth, Veterans, and their families using a wide range of therapeutic equestrian and related programs.
EquiCenter participants perceive therapeutic horseback riding as a more positive experience than traditional therapy, serving as a strong motivator in achieving their therapeutic goals. EquiCenter's nationally recognized programs also address mental/ emotional, neurological and cognitive challenges such as autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), various mental health issues, and challenging life circumstance. EquiCenter's program, Heroes and Horses, provides therapeutic equestrian activities to wounded veterans in need and their families.
Our mission is to encourage, support and advocate for those living with and affected by rare forms of cancer, such as peritoneal carcinomatosis (PMCA) and to raise public awareness and funding to aid in the research and treatment of these diseases.
It is our goal to deliver financial support to patients and their families as they seek critical medical opinions and treatment for PMCA and other rare forms of cancer.
