Kick Off Ambassadors

Do you remember what it was like when you were new to LPGA Amateurs / EWGA? How overwhelming it was to attend the breakfast, understand how the league sign up process works, and then stand in a room with a sea of ladies to sign up. Would you have liked someone to have guided you through the process?
We are looking for volunteer ambassadors to help a few new members through the following: 

  • Join them for the Kickoff brunch on 3/16
  • Help them determine their skill levelAre they new to the game of golf? Should they join Just Golf Rookies?   
  • Where and when do they want to play?
  • Guide them to the right league, based on skill, location, and time commitment
  • Introduce them to the site captains for the leagues they are interested in 
  • Encourage them to attend our events: Spring Fling is a great opportunity for newbies to get their feet wet on a par 3 course, and they get to meet even more of our wonderful ladies! 
To sign up to be an ambassador please check the box in your Kickoff Brunch registration and we will reach out to you with more information. 

If you have any questions or suggestions please reach out to me
