And just like that the 2024 golf season is upon us! Welcome to all our new members and welcome back to the rest of us! Many of us enjoyed the fun Tee Off on March 17th, and we received positive feedback from those who attended Juliet Little’s pre-season clinic on April 21st.

Next up…. The Opener! We are looking forward to the official launch of the season on May 5th in Jersey City. We can’t wait to see you all there. Immediately following that week is League kickoff! Let’s hope Mother Nature cooperates.

A couple of reminders of things coming up quickly.

Keep checking the website and your emails for additional information, events and reminders.

If you are interested in seeing an LPGA Event "live" there are 4 upcoming tournaments in our area, beginning with the Cognizant Founders Cup at the Upper Montclair Country Club 5/9 - 5/12. For a complete tournament list click here. Log into the Member Clubhouse for information on how to receive free or discounted tickets for events.

The Board and I wish you a successful season- filled with great shots and great memories. Hope to see you all on the course soon. 


LPGA Amateurs Member ID

The process to obtain a digital Membership ID has changed and we are now using the Virtual Community instead of ID123. Members can use a digital version (screen capture of profile from Virtual Community) or a printed copy of their LPGA Amateurs Member ID (print out profile from Virtual Community or Member Clubhouse). Click here for instructions.

Please note that either the new LPGA Amateurs Member ID or the printed ID card will be needed to access some member benefits, including entry to LPGA Tour events in 2024. Information regarding the process to access each of the 2024 LPGA Tour events is available here

2024 Member Referral Program

Our 2024 "Chapter Member Referral Awards Program" is in full swing! Thank you to all our members that have provided referrals so far! So far, for the 2024 season, we have 61 new members, and over fifty percent have been member referrals. 

Kudos to Jean Parmelli, our super recruiter, who has already referred 14 new members this year! Although it might be difficult to catch Jean for first prize in our Awards Program, everyone who refers a new member still has a shot at a prize! So spread the word and invite your friends to join our fabulous chapter.

This program has been created to show our appreciation to those referring members and 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! If you enjoy our Chapter, invite your friends to share the fun! All members with referrals are entered into our drawing at the end of the season. The more members you refer the greater your chances for a prize!
