CALLING ALL SWFL CHAPTER MEMBERS !!!

Want to be part of the largest Amateur Women's Golf Tournament in the World?

Come out and join us for our Chapter Championship and get to experience the thrill of the first stage of a National competition.

Nervous?   Why? You're only competing against the people you see on the course all the time with the same kind of handicap you have...

Not good enough?    Why? You're the same level of player as the others in your flight with the same handicap, AND all your strokes still count...

Only play for fun?   You may surprise yourself how much fun you have competing with others at your level of ability... how do you know if you don't try?

It's too expensive? $75.00 for golf at The Quarry, lunch, entry fee, awards, lots of fun AND a replay round of golf? Awesome value, what have you got to lose?

I won't be available for the next round if I win:
So, someone not as good as you on the day gets to go....
 
Come on ladies, make 2019 the year
you take a chance and be part of something HUGE (ah)!

All the details are below, and please just ask if you have any questions.

Special Announcement
16th Annual Ladies' Charity ProAm
LPGA Amateur Golf Association SWFL Chapter
Saturday, April 27, 2019 and Sunday, April 28, 2019
 
Here is an update on the planning for this year's Charity ProAm hosted by our chapter. This year's theme is "Sweet 16 and Still Swinging". There are multiple ways that you can support our biggest fund raising event:

REGISTER TO PLAY 
As you know, this is one of the few women-only pro-am golf tournaments in Florida.  We are playing a Scramble format with 3 amateurs being joined by a LPGA-USGA teaching professional.  
Make your own team or we will pair you with a group.  
Registration will open on February 18th. If you are considering playing, please register early since it is a very popular event and teams are limited. Look for a special announcement next Monday to all SWFL LPGA members and past participants.
SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Help to make this our best event ever! Our tournament is all about the GIRLS:  The PACE Center for Girls in Immokalee and the local LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program.  Because of wonderful support, we have raised over $200,000 for our charities the past 15 years.  These monies have been used as cash donations and scholarship awards.   If you would like to support the GIRLS with cash donation or provide raffle or auction items, please complete the attached Sponsor Flyer that will be included with next Monday's registration announcement. Questions? Contact Michele Klinowski at 239-595-5589
 
VOLUNTEER
It takes a lot of hard work and effort to have a successful event. We need you and encourage anyone interested in volunteering for the event to contact Marianne Meola at 239-671-6237 or mmeola4145@aol.com . Many opportunities exist to lend a hand either now as we organize the event or the weekend of the event.
Please consider supporting our largest event of the year. On behalf of the Charity Pro-Am Committee, we look forward seeing you at Quail Creek on April 27th and 28th for good times, laughter and a lot of fun!
If you have any questions,
 please reach out to Michele Klinowski or Marianne Meola
