2019 LPGA AMATEURS CENTRAL PA LEAGUE POLICIES & GENERAL INFORMATION
The 2019 league season begins the week of April 15th and ends the week of August 26th.  Additional weeks of play are at the discretion of the league captain and the golf course.

Each league will hold a pre-season meeting prior to the beginning of the 2019 league play.

All league members must be LPGAAmateurs Central PA members in good standing.

All league members are expected to conduct themselves appropriately on the golf course.  Players are expected to follow all local rules and rules of behavior including Dress Code.

LPGAAmateurs Central PA chapters operate with the goal to provide an opportunity for women to play golf in a supportive environment.  If you have any concerns or questions, please speak to your league captain or the league director, Jeri Elam.

 Course Etiquette and Ready Golf

Leave the course better than you found it.

     Replace your divots

     Rake the sand

     Fix your ball mark on the green

Respect fellow players. Don’t talk or take practice swings or stand too close to another player who is about to swing.

Play quickly and efficiently.

     Be ready to hit when it is your turn. Limit your pre-shot routine to one practice swing.

Note yardage as you approach your shot so proper club selection can be made quickly. 

When a fellow player is hitting, try to follow the flight of the shot so you can help look for it if necessary. 

Keep pace with the group in front. You are playing too slowly if the group in front is more than one hole ahead.

Your place on the course is behind the group in front of you and not in front of the group behind you.

If your group has an entire hole open in front of you because of slow play, you need to let the group behind play through.

 

For pace of play, a player should pick up her ball once she reaches a score of 10 on a hole.  A 10 is the maximum number on any hole that a member with a 9-hole handicap of 20 can record.  A 20 is the highest handicap a member can have for a 9-hole Handicap Index. 

 

Never look for a ball more than 3 minutes. WHY? From the USGA Golf Etiquette 101:


Lost Ball...If a player believes his ball may be lost outside a water hazard or is out of bounds, to save time, he should play a provisional ballPlayers searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. They should not search for three minutes before doing so. Having allowed the group behind to play through, they should not continue play until that group has passed and is out of range.  

Always leave a golf cart on the quick exit side of the green and at least 30 feet from the putting surface.

Drop player farthest from the green at her ball, then go to yours.  She can join you after you hit.


Substitute Policy 

 

Each league will establish a substitute policy.  It is important to remember that our host golf courses have set aside a certain number of tee times for us.  We need to be good partners with our host courses and fill up our tee times.

While it is preferred that subs be LPGAAmateurs members, a non-LPGAAmateurs member may sub no more than two times in one season.

Each league may determine whether subs can win prizes.

League Handicaps 

League handicaps from last season will be the base for this season’s handicaps. Players without a handicap will provide either their USGA Handicap Index or a general idea of their typical 9 or 18-hole score.  In addition, the first two weeks of league play can be used to help determine handicaps.

Handicaps will be calculated weekly.  This should be very easy for league captains to maintain on a spreadsheet.

For purposes of league play, players should record their actual score on a hole (up to a 10) to determine the winner/loser of a match.  For handicap purposes, the league captain should apply Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) when computing league handicaps.  For example, if you have a 9-hole course handicap of 5 – the maximum score you can take on a hole is 7.  You play a par 5 and score an 8, but your opponent scores a 6.  You record the 8, and the opponent records the 6 to be used in your total 9-hole score.  When the league chair goes to record your score for handicap purposes, she will change that 8 to a 7, and use your adjusted score for that week’s total.   You will do the same when posting your 9-hole score for your USGA Handicap Index.

League players with a USGA Handicap Index should record their 9-hole scores as long as a majority of holes are played under Rules of Golf and at least 7 holes are completed.

Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) for 9 hole ESC:

Index                Hole Score Max.

0-4                                   double bogey

5-9                                    7

10-14                              8

15-19                              9

20 or more         10 

Inclement Weather Policy

The golf course will make the call as to whether golf is canceled. 

Weekly Games and Prizes

Leagues may choose to play weekly games or a combination of games and competition such as a league championship.  The prize money ($30 for the entire season) will be collected the first two weeks of league play.  Participation in games is not mandatory.  Prizes (cash) will be distributed at the End of the Year Banquet.

 USGA Policy on Gambling:

“The USGA does not object to informal wagering among individual golfers or teams of golfers when the players in general know each other, participation in the wagering is optional and is limited to the players, the sole source of all money won by the players is advanced by the players on themselves or their own teams and the amount of money involved is such that the primary purpose is the playing of the game for enjoyment.”
