Member Referral Awards Program - 2022 Winners and a New Contest!!

We are excited to tell you that 69 new members joined our chapter this season!  Of these, forty were member referrals, representing 58% of our total new members. As promised earlier this year, we held two raffles at the end of the season to reward these efforts: a $25 raffle for those who referred 1-2 new members and a $50 raffle for those who referred 3 or more.

Congratulations to Pat MacIsaac, whose name was drawn as the winner of the $25 raffle. Jean Parmelli, the only member to refer 3 or more new members, won the $50 prize, referring 4 new members!! 

          

Thank you to Pat, Jean and all of our ladies who referred a new member. Your effort promoting our organization has a significant impact. 

The “new” season for determining the pool of potential winners for the 2023 season has now begun!  New members must identify you as the referring member to be considered for the drawing.

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

 


Member Benefit - Visiting Chapters While Traveling 

 

  One of the unique benefits of being a member of LPGA Amateurs is visiting other Chapters while traveling and having the opportunity to meet other members and maybe even play golf! The easiest option to connect with other Chapters is to email the President of the Chapter and let them know your schedule - their contact information should be in the "About" section or in the Contact tab/form on the Chapter Website. You can also check the Chapter event calendar to see if there is an event that coincides with your travel plans. Cheers to making new friends! 

 


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

 

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.

Dear LPGA Amateurs - Northern New Jersey Chapter Member:

I hope you all had a fun and satisfying golf season. It is always so hard to believe how quickly the season goes by…. but we are not done yet! We have two more events planned so be sure to mark your calendars and keep an eye on your email for additional information.

  • Turkey Open 11/5 (Farmstead Golf and CC)
  • Holiday Party 11/30 (Hanover Manor)

We are coming up on elections. The slate is being finalized and soon you will see an email with instructions on how to vote for the candidates for the 2022-2023 Board. As always, your input is important! Help shape the future of YOUR Chapter!

Please join me in congratulating the Cup team, Par-Tee Girls. This team consists of 8 women, led by captain, Karen Stepsus. Other team members are Jane Egan, Niamh Finnan, Shaunagh Guinness, MaryLynn Miles, Mindy Oosten, Jan Tomasiewicz, and Marge Zietchick. This group of ladies from our Chapter have qualified for the Finals in Texas after moving through the Regional Qualifying round. The event will take place at the end of this month. GOOD LUCK LADIES AND BRING THE CUP TO NORTHERN NEW JERSEY!!

For those of you who are not familiar with this tournament, I can tell you from personal experience how fun it is. Yes, it is competitive, but it is all flighted and handicapped, and the people you meet along the way are fabulous. Consider getting a team of your own together for next season!

Hope to see you all at the next couple of events. Enjoy the beautiful Fall weather. All the best… Stefanie
