Who We Are

LPGA Women Who Play is an initiative born through an alliance between the LPGA Foundation and the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA). For almost 30 years, the EWGA connected thousands of women across the U.S. and beyond to learn, play, and enjoy golf for business and fun. By joining forces, the LPGA and EWGA are able to broaden the reach of the LPGA’s renowned resources to the EWGA’s amateur women golfers and grow the audience for a combined mission.


The LPGA Women Who Play, Austin, TX Chapter provides golf opportunities for women of all ages and athletic levels through golf leagues in the northern, south, central, and west Austin areas, golf play days, tournaments, and educational programs. We are passionate about the game of golf and want to encourage women to learn the game for both personal and professional reasons.

Joining the chapter is a great way to get involved in the game of golf and to meet other women. Our Calendar of Events includes education programs, leagues, golf outings, and networking and social activities.  Join us!  We'll help you get in the game - it's good for business!

Rules of Golf and Golf Tips

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! 

_________________________

Learn about Handicaps

  • Members must enter all acceptable scores (Both 9 and 18 hole rounds)
  • As of 2016 scores must be attested (i.e. played with someone else that can verify your play) to be acceptable
  • The handicap committee will designate specific events where scores have to be entered as ‘Tournament’
  • The handicap committee has the ability to reduce or increase the handicap index of a player whose handicap does not reflect the player’s potential ability (So make sure you enter your scores – good & bad)
