From your Chapter Handicap chair:
The NCGA 2017 tournament season has officially begun. If you like to compete, you should see several tournaments that fit you. Several of us have competed in the Women's Net Amateur in the past and brought home trophies. I have also competed in the Women's Four-Ball which I recommend, as well. Check 'em out. Some of these competitions have qualifiers. Please plan ahead for them.
If you are interested, register for the competition at the link on our Chapter Events page. Click the following link for more information on NCGA Tournaments.
