Member Referral Awards Program

Did you know that over 60% of our new members come to us via member referral? Needless to say, referrals are important in helping our chapter thrive. In recognition of these efforts, we have announced a new member referral awards program.

For the 2022 season, when a new member joins and identifies a Northern New Jersey member as having referred them, the referring member’s name will be added to a raffle. The winners will be drawn at the Season Closer.  There will be a $25 raffle for those who refer 1-2 new members and a $50 raffle for those who refer 3 or more.

In order to qualify, the new member must identify, at the time of registration, who has referred them. You will be notified by email when we receive a new member referral under your name. 

Thank you for promoting our world-class golf organization. Please contact our Membership Recruitment Director, Pat Bringewatt, if you have any questions.

The Chapter held its first Annual Meeting via zoom on April 26th, 2022. Thirty-one members attended and you can find the recording of the session here: 2022 Annual Meeting Zoom Video

Sponsorship Committee - Volunteers Needed

Where can you find over 250 golf-loving, fun-driven women who want to share, spend, and recommend goods and services? The members of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the LPGA Amateur Association! Can you join the new sponsors committee to reach out to businesses to share their resources in exchange for the opportunity to connect to NNJ members? Email Vice President Susan Nostrame to be part of this committee. Not necessary, but if you have any experience in sales, marketing, fund raising, or just love people, we can’t wait to have you join the Sponsors Committee. 

Email vicepresident@lpgaamateursnnj.com today.


Handicap

 

With golf season around the corner, it’s time to think about a handicap. Our LPGA Amateurs Northern NJ Chapter offers the option for obtaining a GHIN (Golf Handicap Information Network) number.

  • GHIN is a service offered by the USGA to regional golf associations, such as the New Jersey State Golf Association (NJSGA). Our members can obtain, renew, or transfer GHIN through our chapter. Having GHIN will register you with the NJSGA, making you eligible to participate in NJSGA tournaments and events; check their website. The cost for this service is $33. The Constant Contact Platform of $1.33 will be added at time of payment.
  • GolfNet is no longer a member benefit. If you had an “active” account last year, you may continue to post to GolfNet for one more year and then you will have to switch to GHIN. If you wish to move to GHIN this year, click on the “register here” below and where the form asks for a GHIN number enter “GolfNet” and you will be assigned a GHIN number and have your scoring record moved.
IMPORTANT:  The only requirement is that you must be an ACTIVE MEMBER of the LPGA Amateurs Northern NJ Chapter. Please click here and log into the Member Clubhouse to renew your membership for 2022.

To obtain, renew or transfer a GHIN accountREGISTER HEREAfter receiving your GHIN number, you will be able to set up your account and post your score at GHIN.com or download the GHIN mobile app and post it there. 

 

First Time GHIN Number
Members receiving a GHIN Number for the first time will receive a confirmation email, identifying their GHIN Number, from our Handicap Chair. You then will be able to set up/access your account on GHIN.com or on the GHIN mobile app. For security reasons, first time uses will be asked to create a digital profile. The process is simple but if you have any questions, please contact Sue Stager, Handicap Chair.
 
Renewing or Transferring GHIN Number

Members who are renewing or transferring their existing GHIN Number can expect to be activated within 48 hours from submitting the registration form.

For additional information regarding GHIN check out the Handicap page on our website.

Fellow Chapter Members

We can finally say with certainty that GOLF SEASON IS HERE! What a great event at Farmstead Golf & CC to kick off the 2022 season! The weather cooperated, we played great golf at a beautiful course, enjoyed delicious food, and had the company of old and new friends! For this event, and any other events going forward, please send in your pictures to chaptercommunications@lpgaamateursnnj.com. It will be fun to gain a collection of pictures throughout the season and we will try and display them at our end of year celebration.

While the Opener may be behind us, the Board is busy planning future events!  As a reminder, we have many beginner clinics and group lessons with local courses scheduled, all different times, price points, and venues. We also have some Inter-Chapter Events coming up. These events are great for meeting other LPGA members from other Chapters. Please make a point to visit our website to familiarize yourself with events coming up. You won’t want to miss out.

Leagues have begun! The week of 5/2 began our 2022 Leagues. We had a mix of weather; but that’s May in New Jersey! 

To all our new members…. WELCOME! Don’t forget even though Leagues have begun, you can still take advantage of our Sub List. This is a great way to meet different members, play different courses and play at your convenience. You can sign up to sub for as many leagues as you want for $36.00!

Also available are our Wednesday and Saturday travel leagues. This option is a “pay as you go” format. Communication will be sent leading up to the date or you can view the calendar of courses on our website and play when it fits your schedule.

Please also consider participating in our new Ambassador Program. This is a great way to meet new members and volunteer for the Chapter. See the website for details and if interested, contact memberservices@lpgaamateursnnj.com. 

I look forward to seeing you all on the course at some point this season. I am subbing on various leagues this year, so I hope to run into many more of you!  Don’t forget to spread the word about our Chapter; it is another way to be an ambassador for our Chapter! Meet someone on the course? Tell them about us and ask them to join our group! The bigger our membership, the more benefits we can offer our members, make sponsorships more attractive, and will have the opportunity to offset more of the costs of events. 

Happy Golfing…

Stefanie

 


 

We would like to welcome our new members for 2022. Of the new members below, over 60% were referred by a current member.  Member referrals are extremely important to our Chapter, and our Member Referral Awards Program has been created as a thank you to those referring members.  This program is in addition to the "Member Get a Member" drive by National.  Remember…the more robust our Chapter becomes, the more events we can offer at more competitive prices!
