April 28 - Local Championship Qualifier
Santa Barbara Golf Club

LPGA Amateurs have renamed the competition called Chapter Championship to “Local Championship Qualifier (LCQ)”.  So don’t be surprised by the new name.   

Our LCQ is scheduled for Sunday April 28 starting at 8am at the Santa Barbara Golf Club.  Those who have competed in prior years know that this is a flighted competition open to all Chapter members.  There are 5 stroke play flights based on a player’s index, plus one Scramble flight. 

Handicap Index      Flight 
10.0 and under  Championship
10.1 to 17.0       First Flight
17.1 to 24.0       Second Flight
24.1 to 32.0       Third Flight
32.1 to 40.4       Fourth Flight

We will be using 3 Tee Boxes this year, based on Handicap Index

Flight                          Yardage    Slope   Tee Box
Championship Flight   5524 yards   127     Red/White (White Tees on #2,3,7,10,12,13)
1st and 2nd Flights     5153 yards   122     Red–Modified (Green Tees on #5,16,17)
3rd and 4th Flights     4870 yards    118    Red/Green Tees

Scramble team players will tee off from the appropriate tee box based on the individual player’s index.  The Scramble team handicap will be determined using the Ambrose method

The cost to compete is
Golf and Awards Lunch:         $70
Golf, Cart and Awards Lunch:  $84

After our golf rounds, we will meet in the dining room at Mulligans for Lunch and Trophies. The top Low Gross and Low Net Stroke players in each flight, plus the top two Scramble teams will advance to the regional competition. 

To play in the LCQ, there are two steps required: 
1.  Players must Register on the LPGA Amateur site
2.  Players must pay our local Chapter site

This is a GREAT year to play because it is an all California Championship.  The Sectional Championship Qualifier (SCQ), formerly called the District Semi-Finals, will be held on June 15 at the Sycuan Resort in El Cajon, CA.  The Championship Finals will be held Oct 11-12 at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort in Rancho Mirage, CA.   

Another reason this is a GREAT year to compete is that the LPGA Amateurs HQ staff are not charging the $50 admin fee.  So registration costs for the LCQ is less than in past years.

If you have ANY questions, please ask Marilyn Freeman, our LCQ Director. You can email her

We are looking forward to a GREAT Championship tournament this year. 

Hope to see you there!

 May 3 - May 5 - 13th Annual Cal Cup

The 2019 Cal Cup Matchplay Event will be held at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA.  Haggin Oaks was established in 1932 and offers two 18-hole courses, a lighted and automated driving range, a nine-hole putt-putt course, an indoor/outdoor Player Performance Studio for club-fitting and lessons, a Super Store stocked with fashions and gear.  There’s a whole building with nothing but golf shoes and the selection of clothes, accessories and clubs in the pro shop is pretty amazing.  Worth the trip just to visit the Super Store - the #1 Public Golf Shop in the United States!

The Event Fee Structure for a Tournament Competitor has not been determined, but we have been told to expect to pay $325, which includes two rounds of golf at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex on Saturday and Sunday mornings with cart, range balls, the Friday evening Reception, Saturday and Sunday lunch buffets, and the Cal Cup awards presentation.

As always, the Cal Cup will have two formats of Team Play on Saturday, Four Ball (Better Ball) and Foursomes (Alternate Shot) and Sunday will be individual competition.  Each team member is required to play both competitive rounds.

All interested players are required to pay in full for the Cal Cup event prior to playing in a qualifying round (pay to play.)  If you do not qualify, you will be refunded the Cal Cup entry fee by March 22, 2019.  As a chapter, we are required to secure our spot in the Cal Cup event in advance, so these fees will be applied.  We anticipate being able to offer a non-competitive format on both Saturday and Sunday and those players will have an opportunity to play a round on both courses.

Your 2019 Cal Cup Captains are Marilyn Freeman and Lori Kibbie who are available to answer any questions or help with anything you may need in regards to the Cal Cup Event.

Let's bring the cup home!
