NEWSFLASH: May 30, 2019
The season's here and we've got golf!
From competitive to casual, your Chapter offers an array of events for every taste. Chase a trophy, pick three clubs, host a pro, prep for an overnight outing--there's lots to do this summer!
What's an LCQ? A great afternoon at a great course!
Our Local Championship Qualifier (a.k.a. LCQ, formerly the Chapter Championship) takes place at Pinehaven Country Club in Guilderland on Saturday, July 6. All Chapter members are welcome to play in one of the five flights of stroke play, based on handicap, or on a scramble team. Five of our members went all the way to the national level in last year's LPGA Amateurs Championship.

Think you're "not good enough" to compete? Read Chapter member Stephanie Brown's piece "From the Back of the Pack" at the LPGA Women's Network website, for ideas on how to have a meaningful and fun experience whether or not you win.

Your $80 LCQ fee is all inclusive--18 holes with cart at a premier private club, range balls, and awards and buffet following the event. Participants begin teeing off at noon on July 6, after practice and a players' meeting at 11 am.

Deadline for registration is June 15 . Use this link for more local information and to access registration at the national website.
Pick your clubs now for the Three-Club Challenge
On Friday, June 21, we'll offer a perennial favorite: our scramble event with a twist. The Three-Club Challenge requires four-member teams to play with three clubs per person for nine holes. You'd be surprised at the scores! (Both good and bad.)

Got a friend who's interested in golf but not yet a Chapter member? This event accommodates guests--so a fun scramble format is a great opportunity to #inviteHER. Use this link for more information and registration .
Bluff Point is back in September--and we need to hear from you now
We're reviving an old favorite for our first overnight outing in many years: Bluff Point. The gang stays overnight Sunday-Monday in cottages along the fairway and plays two rounds of golf at this rustic resort on Lake Champlain outside Plattsburgh. (At right are some current and former Chapter members at our 2010 outing.)

Event Captain Kathleen Hill has obtained 16 slots for us at the bargain price of $89 for September 15-16. We need your commitment by June 15 to make this a go. Read the details at this link , then provide a $10 deposit to be credited toward your fee.
Get to know a pro--host a Symetra Tour player
The Symetra Tour needs you! The tournament relies on Chapter members to serve among the community hosts for players on tight budgets in the LPGA's developmental tour. This year's CDPHP Open runs July 22-28 at Capital Hills Golf Course. For more information, visit this link .
