League Registration Starts May 4th                       
Online Registration : All of our 2020 league registrations will be done online via our website and paid for by credit card through our 123 system. Each league has its own registration page so if you wish to participate in more than one league, you will need to register and pay for each one separately. Because of the present circumstances, this became our best option. (Sorry.) The process is the same regardless if it's a prepaid league or pay-as-you-play league.

To register: Go to
https://chapters.lpgaamateurs.com/events/chapter-leagues/MNME   There  you will find links for individual league information and well as links for the 123 sign up with payment.   If a league you choose is full, please sign up to sub on that league since we find there is always a need for subs on all leagues. Sign up ends May 10th
Sub sign up uses a different process. There is a  link to a 1 page sign-up form where you will sign-up for any and all leagues you wish sub on - all on that page. As usual, there is no charge for signing up as a sub. You will pay directly to the person for whom you are subbing.

Once registration is closed and all the information has been compiled, the League Captains will be contacting all regular league members and anyone subbing on their league for any additional information.

PLEASE WATCH FOR UPDATES!  Information and rules about how courses are operating are not all finalized and we can expect they will continually evolve and be updated over the course of the season. So please watch for and read emails from us and your league captains.  Thanks and stay safe.

Successful Virtual Tee Off
7 0 Members attended our Virtual Tee Off! Thank you to all who "Zoomed" in. A special thank you to Angie Ause, our guest speaker, for her inspiring message. 

The Board and its committees have been working hard to get the 2020 season scheduled and make the sign up process as smooth as possible. We're all anxious to get out there to play golf and we all understand this year will require a lot of patience and co-operation from everyone. As the LPGA Amateurs Golf Association MnMetro chapter, let's be a great example for golf under these challenging conditions.
Thank you to our Sponsors
