Tony Dalton, 2017 VGA President, invites you to join the Valley Golfers Association
What is the Valley Golfers Association?
The Valley Golfers Association is a group of individuals located in the Phoenix area who enjoy the game of golf. With over 100 members, our abilities range from the highly skilled low handicapper to the weekend duffer. The VGA is a member of the Arizona Golf Association and adheres to the principles and rules of golf established by the United States Golf Association. All of its members must belong to the AGA and pay yearly dues to the VGA.
What does the VGA offer? We offer prearranged handicap tournaments twice each week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Eligible players may pay a small entry fee to enter the tournaments. Depending on the turnout, prize money is awarded to the lowest two or three net scores, based on the GHIN handicap system. However, participants may elect to forgo the tournament and pay $1.00 to the VGA, which allows the player to enter the closest-to-the-pin contest. Interested players may sign up for every event or choose only those events that fit into their schedule. There is no pressure to play every week.
Where does the VGA play? We play at many courses throughout the valley. We schedule all events by the quarter and reserve tee times. In the winter months we play courses such as Coldwater, Union Hills, Ken MacDonald, and Viewpoint. We schedule some of the more exclusive courses in the summer months when the fees go down such as Troon North, Grayhawk,, Whirlwind, and The Phoenician.
Are you interested? The VGA is always looking to expand its membership. If you are interested in playing in a VGA event, please click on ONLINE ENTRY FORM link. Join us for a round of golf and you may decide to become a member. If you are undecided, you may play three times per year as our guest.
