In an effort to streamline operations, we are offering the following benefits as it pertains to playing privileges in Chapter and/or Section events:

Playing Privileges Policy

It is very important that you read this policy to make sure that you are eligible! Click here to read the policy.

Chapter/Section Playing Permit

When you register for your first Chapter event, the system will recognize that you need to purchase your Associate permit in conjunction with your Chapter permit. The $50.00 Associate permit fee is included with your Chapter permit fee. Select your applicable fee and the system will then proceed to the event entry fee. Both items will be in your cart for purchase, and both permits are needed in order to play in any Section and/or Chapter event.

2023 Pro-Am Entry/Registration Process

Eastern – register online two weeks before the event at 9AM Wednesday
Northern – all events are open for registration beginning March 8
Western – Spring Meeting and Match Play events will open for registration beginning March 1. All other events open the day after the Spring Meeting, April 11.

Purchase Section Permit Only

If you will not be playing in any Chapter events but still need to purchase your Associate permit for a Section event, there is a link we can send to you in an email. Please contact Diane at or 517.885.3264.

Amateur Gift Certificates

In order to comply with IRS regulations, all Section Members who win gift certificates in a Chapter/Section Pro Am will have the gift certificate money sent to the Professional’s club, or another club specified by the Professional.
