Handicap Info

How many rounds do I need to establish a handicap?

If you are establishing for the first time, you need 5 18 holes rounds, 10 9 hole rounds or a combination of the two to reach 90 holes played.  

If you already have an established average, you just need 2 18 hole rounds, or 4 9 hole rounds this year to keep your handicap valid for the year.

LPGA Women Who Play National News

Executive Women's Golf Association to be Rebranded as LPGA Women Who Play

Will become a branch of the LPGA Foundation, remains committed to creating local and national golf communities for women

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., March 27, 2018 – The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) announced today that the Executive Women's Golf Association (EWGA) will officially join the LPGA family and be rebranded as 'LPGA Women Who Play,' the final structural step in a strategic alliance between the two organizations to further promote the growth of women's golf.
The EWGA will become a branch of the LPGA Foundation with an overarching goal to create additional playing opportunities for women golfers, which is viewed by both organizations as the perfect complement to the LPGA Women’s Network, a digital platform for female players to share their passion for the game.
The newly created LPGA Women Who Play will remain focused on creating local and national golf communities and experiences for its thousands of members and hundreds of chapters across the globe.
"The EWGA is an incredible network of amateur women golfers who love to play this great game," said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan. “By combining forces with the LPGA, we look to further enhance the benefits and experiences associated with membership. We believe the LPGA can provide both the resources and financial support needed to take this wonderful organization of passionate women to the next level.”
Nancy Henderson, Chief Teaching Officer for the LPGA Teaching & Club Professionals and President of The LPGA Foundation, added: "As we rolled out the LPGA Women's Network, it was clear to us that the missing piece was the 'play' component, and we have now been able to welcome the EWGA to the LPGA family as that play component.
"Our intention is take what the EWGA has built in terms of a base over their 25-plus years and to help elevate that by putting the full resources of the LPGA behind it. Our goal is to grow the player and chapter base to create more opportunities for women golfers in a comfortable environment."
This strategic alliance brings together the LPGA, one of the longest-running women's professional sports associations in the world, and the EWGA, the largest national women’s amateur golf organization, which currently has nearly 12,000 members spanning approximately 100 communities in the United States, Canada, Bermuda and Italy.
"Our members can expect the same commitment to growing their local and national golf community, now powered by the resources of the LPGA and LPGA Foundation,” said Jane Geddes, who as the CEO of the EWGA will lead LPGA Women Who Play as its Executive Director.
“Not only will this move create enhanced experiences and events for existing members, but we believe it provides our organization with a platform to attract a new audience of women to local chapters and the game of golf."
While the restructuring of this alliance was made official with today’s announcement during the buildup to the year's first major championship, the ANA Inspiration, the EWGA and LPGA Foundation will be working hand-in-hand over the coming weeks and months with volunteer leaders and members across the country to ensure a smooth and official transition, chapter by chapter.
Together, the LPGA, LPGA Women’s Network and LPGA Women Who Play will create a seamless transition for women looking to go from aspiring player to recreational golfer and serve as an advocate for positive change within the game.

Membership News

Another great session from Gary Gant at Chestnut!  We had 11 participants and he gave each one individual attention.  Here is a summary of his tips:

 He started with some good reminders on Pace of Play:

i)                    Don’t worry about anyone else; others aren’t paying attention to what you are doing... Everyone hits bad shots... Just keep up w/ the group in front of you

iv)                Don’t use a ball you can’t afford J … look for less than 5 min

v)                  Don’t be afraid to pick up if you have hit your max strokes (maybe then drop on the green & putt)

Next up was the air game on the range (basically all shots other than chipping & putting).  Here are his top tips

·         Grip:  put your left thumb in the crease of your right hand (opposite for lefties) and grip it loosely --- if you are not sure, take a club into the clubhouse & he'll be happy to adjust this for you!

·         Stance:  shoulder width apart

·         Shoulder to Shoulder:  swing the club up back over your right shoulder and finish through over your left shoulder (opposite for lefties).

·         Balance:  this is probably the thing he emphasized the most. Throughout your swing and especially as you finish, you must have your balance (pose at the end facing your target)

 We wrapped up w/ the ground game (chipping).  This technique can be used for a large range of chipping distances - the basics are the same, just change the length of the swing:

·         Put the ball in the middle of your stance

·         Lean like crazy (towards the green) - your weight should be mostly on the foot closest to the green 

·         Position your hands over your front knee

·        Keep your wrists/arms stiff (don't 'flip it'; stiff as can be)

Many thanks to Gary for his support of EWGA!
