Friday September 17th
for the
Champions of Women Golf Tournament
BIG things are coming our way, Columbus LPGA Amateurs are pairing up with Ohio Dominican University and the City of Columbus to host the Champions of Women Tournament at Champions Golf Course September 17-19th 2021

We have been invited to assist ODU for their first Fall Champions of Women Tournament involving 10+ NCAA Division II Women’s College teams. This is an awesome opportunity for our Chapter to engage with the younger area women golfers, recruit new members and share golf experiences.
We will need 20 volunteers to help serve dinner on Friday night and a few starters/spotters to help throughout the tournament. So, dig out last years Sunset Gold golf shirts you have hidden in the back of your closet and sign up to help.

I would prefer to receive an overwhelming response of volunteers via email @ president.lpgaamateurs.columbus@gmail.com, however, if not, I will be hunting you down on the golf course.
