Chapter Education

LPGA Amateur Golf Association Cleveland Education Opportunities

You do not have to be a good golfer to join LPGA Amateur Golf Association. In fact, many of our members are new or beginning golfers who have improved since joining. It is the best place to learn the game!

Our chapter tries to provide an environment where women can learn to play golf without pressure. You will find that we have league play at several different local courses covering a range of difficulty to help accommodate golfers of all skill levels.

We have a commitment to promote and foster a spirit of acceptance, dignity and respect for women golfers. One way we do that is to provide educational opportunities for our members whatever their level of experience. Our current education opportunities:

"Fairway Friends" - A Mentoring Program, is available for newer members who would like an opportunity to have an LPGA Amateur Golf Association member help them adjust to their new home course and/or help make that transition from instruction to playing golf. This program is open to all member golfers, provided you’ve been through a basic level of golf instruction. A mentor will help you get around the golf course safely and answer questions about etiquette, basic rules and the other nuances of the game in order to build your confidence and comfort in the golf course setting.

If interested, please check with your Course Director or contact Wendy Shick at

Golf With A Board Member - If you’re interested in learning more about LPGA Amateur Golf Association while spending some golf time with one of our Board members, please let us know. We’d be happy to share some time with you on the course and let you know more about our Chapter! Please contact Wendy Shick at  if interested.

Pace of Play

Being a short hitter isn’t the cause of slow play, being inaccurate however does add time to the round. What you do – or fail to do – between shots sets the pace of play, not the number of strokes you take.  Following these guidelines will keep things moving along smoothly, earning you the approval of the marshal and the gratitude of the group behind you.
