Handicaps

The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.

Having a handicap index allows golfers to participate in more events (those that require a handicap index), have a measurable means of tracking improvement, and allows score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.

VOLUNTEERS / LEADERSHIP

Volunteers are important to the success of our Fort Worth Chapter of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association.
Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one's ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them.
-Harriet Naylor

Feeling inspired? Want to get involved, but don't know where to start? Joining a committee or volunteering for an event is a great way to meet members. We're all busy women, but it is very satisfying, and just plain fun, to work with and get to know other women who enjoy this challenging game as much as we do.

You can sign up for a chapter volunteer position at the following link:

PACE OF PLAY

TIPS TO KEEP IT MOVING

Being a short hitter isn’t the cause of slow play, being inaccurate however does add time to the round. What you do – or fail to do – between shots sets the pace of play, not the number of strokes you take.

Following the guidelines below will keep things moving along smoothly, earning you the approval of the marshal and the gratitude of the group behind you. 

Things you can do to keep up the pace of play:

  • Before starting the round, load up your pockets with tees, divot repair tool, ball markers and an extra ball.
  • Play “ready golf”: whoever is ready to hit, goes ahead – especially shorter hitters who can’t reach the group ahead.
  • Develop a concise pre-shot routine and limit the number of practice swings you take.
  • If you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, hit a provisional ball, so you don’t have to go back.
  • Limit the time you search for a lost ball.
  • When riding a cart, drop off your partner at her ball and proceed to yours. If you’re the one riding along, take several clubs with you and start walking down the fairway after you’ve hit instead of waiting to be picked up.
  • If you’re playing into the green, take your putter with you as well so you don’t have to go back to the cart.
  • Leave your bag or cart on the side of the green that is towards the next tee.
  • Study your putting line while others are putting and hole out instead of marking your ball.
  • The first one to putt out, picks up the flagstick and replaces it when everyone is done.
  • Don’t linger on the green to mark your score card. Proceed to the next tee and mark cards there.
And the best way to keep up the pace of play? Always, ALWAYS keep up with the group ahead of you!
