LEAGUE RULES AND FLEX PLAY 

Welcome to the LPGA Amateur Golf Association Columbus, OH Chapter leagues. We hope this will be the start of a fun and exciting season of golf for our members. See below for some key information for league participants: 

All league players must be members of LPGA Amateur Golf Association and your LPGA Amateur membership must be paid in full for the entire season in order to register and participate in league play.

League play begins the last week of April unless noted otherwise. Rainouts are determined by the courses (generally) and will be communicated by the league captains. 

The leagues’ captains may be putting together pairings for each week so that league members will have a chance to play with everyone. Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the first tee time and be ready to go out when your assigned group has gathered. 

If you are unable to play in your league on a given day, it is critical that you notify your captain as far ahead of time as possible. Contact your captain (click here), to let her know you will miss.  This will give her an opportunity to offer your spot for Flex Play (see below).  


Important Notes:
Listed times may be slightly adjusted based on participation numbers but shouldn’t vary more than 15 minutes. 

League dues are non-refundable once payment has been made to the courses, which is usually two weeks prior to start dates.


For Competitive Leagues:
Handicapping Rules

  • A player is responsible for posting all acceptable scores before midnight on the day of play.
  • The maximum score on a hole for each player will be limited to a 'Net Double Bogey' calculated as follows: Double Bogey + handicap stokes a player receives based on their Course Handicap
