E-Blast from the LWGA

Please take note of the following news items.  We hope you are enjoying your summer and look forward to seeing you on LWGA playdays.

  • Volunteers Needed for Drive Chip & Putt sub regional qualifier:
    Date: Sunday, July 28th.  If you can help, please contact Nicole at or 695-5211.
  • LWGA Weekly points increased:
    Effective July 1, the weekly points payout has been increased to $7 for first place and $5 for second place.
  • LWGA ‘Shorts’ option.  On July 30th, we are offering the option of playing from the Short tees on Palmetto.  As explained in a previous e-blast, we are planning to try out the Shorts option for the first time on July 30th when we are playing the Palmetto course. Please note that playing the short tee on this day is not required.  You have the option of choosing the Course Named Tee or the Short Tee (as well as the Skidaway Tee). The Course Named players will play from the Course Named Tee and the Shorts players from the Short tee.  There is no special flight for the Shorts. Those playing from the Shorts will have their handicap adjusted according to USGA guidelines. If you have already signed up on Golf Genius for July 30th and need to edit your registration to play from the Short tee, there is plenty of time to do so.
    The ‘Shorts’ option will be offered again on both the Palmetto and Oakridge courses in the fall.
  • September 24th LWGA Play & Social:
    Please join us on September 24th. On that day we will have a 1:30 shotgun start immediately followed by a Social for those who play.  Please join us for some socializing, hors d’oeuvres, and a drink – provided by the LWGA !
  • Red, White , Blue Tournament:
    The game for the Red, White & Blue tournament to be held on September 17th has been changed to 1BB.

Thank You !
