LPGA Amateur Golf Association – Greater Toronto Area supports a mentoring program that offers experienced golfers an opportunity to support the mission of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association by providing opportunities for members newer to the game to learn all about golf – like etiquette, pace of play and the basic rules of the game – in a fun, supportive and non-competitive environment.
The Mentor Program starts after the Spring Kick-off and continues throughout the golf season, as their schedule permits. We match a mentor with a mentee and they will contact each other to arrange a time to talk/meet up. They will then arrange a time to golf at one of our member golf courses and start sharing and learning! Mentors and mentees will take it from there to arrange subsequent times to golf according to their schedules. The mentor becomes a golf “buddy” that the mentee can reach out to throughout the season with questions about LPGA Amateur Golf Association or golf.
For those interested in learning more about the program or becoming a mentor or mentee, please email the Golf Events Director.

The Rules of Golf are unique. Together, the USGA and the R&A write and administer a single set of Rules to apply worldwide to all golfers. They are written assuming all players are honest and will play by the Rules. While it can be tempting to overlook the Rules due to their complex nature, all golfers stand to benefit by familiarizing themselves with the Rules.
One benefit to knowing the Rules is the added comfort you have in knowing your rights or options on the course. A lot of us have probably found ourselves asking: is it one club length or two club lengths? The better you understand the Rules, the more questions you will be able to answer. There are not many games that depend upon honesty and integrity of the player.
