Capital Region NY Chapter
Chapter Leagues

LPGA Amateurs/Capital Region NY offers more than 200 player slots at five different player skill levels. Our 2019 league lineup appears below.

Please note: League members  and subs must be paid-up Chapter members and must meet the minimum skill guidelines for their league. Scroll down this page to Player Skill Guidelines for more information. Intermediate through Advanced leagues require that members have a current handicap index, based on posting of scores in a timely fashion. As an alternative, a player may present a statement from a golf professional who is familiar with her level of proficiency. 

Sub Central

Sub Central lets league members and subs find each other through an online matching system. For full instructions on using the system, download the Sub Central User Guide.

Now you can use Sub Central on a mobile device.
Unlike desktop or laptop users, mobile users must download an app to get Sub Central league sheets to work properly. Here's the steps:
1. Go to your device's app store and search for Google Sheets.
2. Download the app.
3. Sign into the app using your Google account (i.e., Gmail address) if you have one.
4. If you don't, we've set up a Google log-in account for Chapter members--email us at LPGAAmateursCRNY@gmail.com to obtain the info.
5. Return to the league sheet, and now you'll be able to use the drop-down tab listing league members or enter your name for subbing.

Player Skill Guidelines

The following guidelines for player skills will help chapter members select a league that provides a happy playing experience.

Beginner Leagues: Beginner Leagues play at par 3 courses. These leagues are designed to help develop the brand new player, building on familiarity with the basic equipment and rules of golf. Beginner Leagues focus on golf etiquette, ball-striking skills, learning the rules of the game, and pace of play. Beginner leagues' programs may include lessons from golf professionals; members are strongly encouraged to take these or other lessons and clinics before advancing.

Advanced Beginner Leagues: Advanced Beginner Leagues provide a stepping stone to General League participation. Advanced Beginner Leagues may play at par 3 or regulation courses and do not include a lesson component. Members must possess a general knowledge of USGA rules and be able to play Ready Golf.

General Leagues: General Leagues play at regulation courses and provide members with the opportunity to establish a handicap. Members of General Leagues must have at least one season of golfing experience. Each player must possess a general knowledge of USGA rules and must be capable of playing Ready Golf and maintaining the pace of play.

Intermediate Leagues: Intermediate Leagues may play in various formats, casual and/or competitive. Members and subs must have an established handicap index of 40.4 or less. To sign up for an Intermediate League, you must provide proof of handicap index via copy of a recent card, web site printout, or verifiable registration number from the USGA GHIN system (or GN21, available on a legacy basis for existing participants).  A certification from a golf professional verifying your playing ability will also suffice.

Advanced Leagues: Advanced Leagues play weekly competitive matches. Members and subs must have an established handicap index of 38.0 or less. To sign up for an Advanced League, you must provide proof of handicap index via copy of a recent card, web site printout, or verifiable registration number from the USGA GHIN system (or GN21, available on a legacy basis for existing participants). A certification from a golf professional verifying your playing ability will also suffice.
