Chapter Policies

Payment Policy

EWGA Westchester events are offered on a prepaid basis. The payment options (depending on the event/venue/instructions) are as follows:
1) credit card via 123 sign up system,
2) check mailed in and received prior to event, or
3) check/cash presented day of event prior to start of event.

Should a payment not clear (ie:
 Insufficient Funds, check returns, cancelled or invalid credit card, etc.) a member must pay and square accounts with the Finance Director within 15 days of notice.  Failure to do so will result in temporary suspension of membership privileges eliminating the opportunity to sign up for future EWGA Westchester events.  Membership will be reinstated once payment is received.

If there is a second occurrence, the member will only be allowed to fully prepay for future events to ensure funds clear prior to the event.

If there is a third occurrence, the Board has the right to revoke membership, though the member would be allowed to finish any events already paid for and cleared (such as league play). 

If termination is being considered, the member may address their payment inconsistencies to the Board, such as mitigating factors etc., for the board's consideration and review.

The Boards decision on suspension and termination are final, and in keeping with the EWGA National Board's guidelines on the subject.

I release EWGA, the photographer, their offices, employees, agents, and designees from liability for any violation of any personal or proprietary right I may have in connection with such use.

Refund Policy

Payment for all events is final and there are no refunds.     In the case of inclement weather, as long as the course is opened, the event will go on.  

Refunds will be issued in the event that an event is cancelled by the course due to inclement weather or by the Chapter due to low attendance. 

Subsidy Policy

At times, the EWGA Westchester Chapter provides a subsidy for active members who are participating in certain events.  

The EWGA Westchester Board of Directors (Board) will, at their sole discretion, determine what the cash subsidy will be, IF ANY, for players that compete in the following EWGA National Championships - Par 3 FINALS, Chapter Championship Regionals and Finals, EWGA Cup Regional Qualifier and Finals, and other Chapter non-competitive and competitive events. 

Those eligible for a subsidy must be EWGA Westchester Primary or Dual members in good standing, AND in any event, represent the Westchester Chapter as a team or individually.  For the Chapter Championship, all those eligible MUST play in our local EWGA Westchester Chapter Championship, and represent Westchester going forward in Semi-Finals and Finals.  Subsidy for the EWGA Cup, and Par 3 Challenge also requires that the team represent EWGA Westchester Chapter.  

In addition, it is the sole responsibility of each Chapter member to notify the Board of their participation, and show proof of payment of Registration.  The list of events that the Board may choose to subsidize due to cost of registration fees and/or travel can be cut or expanded at the discretion of the Board.  Chapter members, can be made aware that an event is eligible for a subsidy, and if at all possible, the Board should notify the Chapter members of the subsidy before the event.
