Free Admission to the Golf Show

Tired of winter? Looking for great deals on clubs, shoes, golf clothes? Miss your friends from league?   If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, volunteering at our booth at the Golf Show is the perfect solution AND YOU'LL GET IN FREE! 

It involves only a 4-hour shift of telling people about LPGA Amateurs, sharing your positive experiences, and helping to grow our Membership. Sign up can be found on our website. A great idea is to sign up with someone your played with in league.  
League Survey
Watch your email for our league survey. Since Headquarters did an overall survey in December, ours will focus on league play. Your input is very important to setting up our 2019 leagues. We are always looking for Members to lead existing and new leagues, helping recruiting players and assisting to make sure all the leagues are welcoming, fun and well run. 

We ask that you review it, complete it and return it in a timely fashion. Your input is important and appreciated.
