    If you are a Scramble Team, each team member will need to register separately and it will ask you for the Captain's name. Make sure you identify a Captain.   Stroke players register the same way. 

    Payment will come directly through our Chapter via Paypal.   
     
    Note:  Start planning now whether you are going to play Stroke Play or as a Chapter Scramble Team. We will schedule a play date at Woodfin before the actual event occurs. Please remember to register and then pay via PayPal.

  • Congrats Brenda !

    Our chapter is about promoting golf and fun. On April 22, our own Brenda Rutledge and her team played in the 2019 Jane Covington Classic. They won the tournament with a score of 23 under par! There were 24 teams who participated. Brenda’s team included her husband, Keith, and friends, Bonnie and Jim Shaw.  Congratulations! 

    Tee-Off 

    We celebrated our annual Tee-Off on St. Patrick’s Day at Golf Galaxy with a putting contest, door prizes, food, fun, shopping and silent auction. We learned about the golf leagues, handicaps and tournaments. Pictures are posted on Facebook (LPGA Amateurs Upstate SC).
