  • Congratulations to Lynn Holstrum for her hole in one at Interbay on August 3rd, 2019!

  • Golf Handicap

    Some members may wish to carry a handicap provided by Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN). The LPGA Amateurs Seattle Chapter is a WSGA Member golf club and offers a GHIN handicap through the WSGA for an annual fee of $40. In addition to providing a handicap, this membership option also includes access to WSGA Championships, Casual Golf Days, Golf deals and events put on by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA).  "LPGA Amateur Golf Association" will be listed as your "home club." Membership and renewals typically take 10-14 days. To apply for GHIN, you may register and pay with a credit card online.

    If you are a new GHIN member, you will need at least six 18-hole equivalent scores to establish a handicap (9-hole rounds can be posted).

    More information
    We are here to help with any questions regarding using either the GN21 system or GHIN, and setting you up with a GHIN account.  For any questions regarding handicap please contact the Handicap chair by sending email to handicap@lpgaamateursseattle.com.
