Covid-19 be aware.

To all VGA players: Please, you should bring enough drinking water with you to make it through your round. Some courses are not providing water or coolers during the covid-19 era on the course and on some, the cart girl doesn’t exist either. It’s going to be a long Summer. 

To: All VGA Members: It has come to the attention of the VGA Board of directors there are member concerns regarding the Corona Virus and whether or not the VGA should or should not continue to play its tournaments. A vote was extended to all board members for their opinion regarding this issue. Responses from all 13 board members voted in favor of continuing its play golf tournaments until such time the public is ordered by the Governor to “Stay at Home”. The VGA board recommends taking all necessary precautions if there are any concerns including bringing hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes. The board also recommends using your common sense. If you’re not feeling well, stay home. Golf is one of the few activities we have during these unique times and as a result, the VGA board recommends to play golf, have fun, but be safe.

Respectfully, Dan Campos, VGA President

Wednesday, August 19, 2020, Talking Stick South (+) 7:04 AM $30.00. Click here to get the course website.

The Course “When commissioned to design Talking Stick Golf Club, our charge was to create two golf courses to accommodate public play yet each decidedly different, with respect to playing characteristics. Talking Stick Golf Club’s O’odham Course (formerly North Course), with its broad, angular holes, rewards thoughtful play through the rise of its many options according to one’s level of skill. Its low profile, slightly crowned greens and close-cropped approaches encourage running as well as aerial assaults. The Piipaash Course (formerly South Course) with its tree-lined fairways and raised greens defended at the sides offers a more straightforward style of play. It presents its challenge and strategy in an open and clear-cut fashion. Whichever course one chooses or prefers, it was our desire to portray golf in a traditional sense, which quietly merges with its tranquil desert surroundings.” – Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw
