Guide to 2022 Competitions by Stacey Hayashi
Sometimes competition can be that push for you to achieve more…Or sometimes competition is another way to put your skills to the test and try to play your game better than you did the day before. Whatever the reason… One very important thing to note is our competitions are for ALL SKILLS LEVELS OF GOLFERS. Competitions are not for just low handicap players. As a member of the LPGA Amateurs, you have the opportunity to participate in three types of competitions: San Diego Chapter, Regional, and LPGA Amateurs National Competitions.
San Diego Chapter Competition Chapter Championship: Our “Cha Cha.” This is our chapter’s Signature Premier event. Once a year, we crown our Chapter Champions for the year: One Low Gross Champion Over the Field & one Low Net Champion Over the Field. This is a 2-day individual stroke competition that will take place this year at Rancho Bernardo Inn over the dates of June 25-26, 2022. Flights are set up based on the number of players in the field and the handicap indexes. Registration will open in May 2022.
Regional Competition Cal Cup: This is a team match-play competition between the California chapters. A 12-player team will represent the San Diego Chapter in this two-day event. There is a local qualification process and minimum eligibility requirements to qualify for the team to represent our Chapter. Cal Cup 2022 will take place on November 12-13, 2022, at Rancho Bernardo Inn. (The qualification process & eligibility requirements will be communicated to our members in February)
In addition to the competitions listed above, we also offer fun, competitive events such as our 2-Day Eclectic, our Devilish Duel Halloween event, and in partnership with the Orange County chapter, the Play 4 P.I.N.K. event in October. We hope to see you out there very soon! If you have any questions on any events, please email me at email@example.com.
