The Club Championship is a two-day stroke play tournament usually held near the end of the year. For the recent past, the Club Championship has been run in conjunction with two consecutive VGA Saturday tournaments.

Just enter the Championship event if you wish to play in it, pay the $10 entry one time and you are all set.

The Club Championship is scheduled for the weekend of September 8 and 9. The first round will be at Los Caballeros (including a $10 food credit) and the second round at Wickenburg Ranch. VGA members with a minimum of ten rounds played in VGA events are eligible. The starting time for each day is 8:00 and the greens fees are $50 for Los Caballeros and $59 for Wickenburg Ranch. The tournament will consist of two or three net flights based on the number of participants. Each flight will consist of about ten players. If there are two flights in the tournament, then the first four places in each flight will award prize money.

John Pierce Green Valley Invitational Tournament.
The John Pierce Invitational Tournament is a stroke play tournament meaning it is by invitation only, usually held in late May or early June at venues typically in or around the Green Valley, Arizona area. A tournament is a three-day event covering Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a practice round on Thursday for those invited to participate. The VGA recognizes this event as an official tournament and all individual scores are posted daily as tournament scores in accordance with USGA rules. However, the VGA Board of Directors has designated this event only for the purpose of counting these rounds towards the 10 VGA rounds required for eligibility to play in the Club Championship. This means there are no Big Dog points awarded or hole-in-one prizes awarded. The VGA treasury does not contribute funds for this tournament. Entry fees are collected from participants and prizes paid to winners in amounts solely determined by the event coordinator.
