Milwaukee Chapter
Education

Golf Education and player development is a very important part of the LPGA Amateurs Golf Association.  The education programs are modular by design allowing you to select the programs that are most suited to your skill level and golf goals.  Most education programs are delivered in person by a PGA or LPGA Teaching Professional. 

Being a member of LPGA Amateurs provides you with opportunities to learn about key golf fundamentals, whether playing for pleasure, business or competition.  That's why we offer the handicapping as well as rules and etiquette clinics to our members.

Handicapping

A Handicap Index allows golfers of all abilities to compete with each other on an equitable basis on any golf course.  All members of the LPGA Amateurs are encouraged to maintain a handicap index.  Having a handicap index not only allows you to enter competitions, it also allows you to be grouped fairly when playing in golf events. 

Establishing and maintaining a handicap index is a great way for you to see how your golf game progresses through the season and from year to year.

LPGA Amateurs provides members with two options for establishing a golf handicap:
LPGA Amateurs GN21:  LPGA Amateurs provides its own handicap service free of charge to all members. 
WSGA:  As a member club of the Wisconsin State Golf Association (WSGA) you have the option of choosing the WSGA system to maintain your handicap index for a discounted annual charge of $25.00. 

WSGA Handicap Register
Registration to become a member of the Wisconsin State Golf Association (WSGA) and to use the WSGA system as your Handicap tracking system.
$25 for LPGA Amateurs Members

Rules & Etiquette Meetings

In Spring, the Milwaukee Chapter hosts Rules & Etiquette meetings that are open to all members.  If you plan to join a league or sign up as a sub, we strongly encourage you to attend one session each year.

The WI State Golf Association (WSGA) will discuss how to apply the rules of golf in the most common situations during your round (what to do when your ball is resting on the cart path or in the water hazard and it is staked red or yellow).  You will also learn about pace of play, etiquette on the golf course and what a handicap is and how to create. 

There will be time for questions.  Weather permitting, there will be demonstrations outside.
