ACCESS TO GOLFNET TO EXPIRE IN DECEMBER 2022

If you haven't been using a handicap system to post your scores, you have only a few days left to login to the Member Clubhouse and activate the free Golfnet System that is included in your membership dues through the end of 2022. Just click on "My Handicap" in the left-hand menu options and post a recent score; then contact Linda Davis to activate your account.
If you have an active handicap account in the GHIN System which you plan to continue to use in 2022, you DO NOT need to take any action.

Those who have kept their handicap in our GOLFNET System must make sure they have an active account before December 22, 2021. LPGA Amateur members will no longer have access to Golfnet in 2022 if their account is inactive. Click here for detailed instructions on how to maintain your GolfNet handicap through 2022. For questions, be sure to contact our Handicap Chair Linda Davis at Handicap@LPGAamateursFtLaud.com

Shoeless Golfer
This is Linda Davis playing the Broward Winter Match Play on December 14th at Plantation Preserve with one shoe on and one shoe off.
After two holes, her new shoe was hurting so much that she took it off and never put it back on. (Wonder how she scored?)
