Covid Update for 11/23/2020

It has come to the attention of the VGA Board of directors that a few members have contracted COVID-19 over the past week.  The VGA board urges all players to take every precaution possible if you decide it is safe to play golf in a VGA tournament.  We emphasize bringing hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes, wearing masks, social distancing, etc.  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 playing golf, have fun, but be as safe as feasibly possible.

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

2020 VGA Club Championship

A traditional championship course with a challenging 135 slope rating and length of 7,014 yards, our “signature hole” is the 13th. Playing 605 yards from the rust tees, it is consistently rated as one of the most challenging par 5 holes in the state. Designed to challenge a variety of skill levels and sitting at 2,100 feet of elevation, our course offers incredible views of the Bradshaw Mountains and Vulture Peak. Adding to the ambiance of this esteemed course are the driving ranges, practice putting greens, short-game practice area, and the first-rate staff that make Los Caballeros Golf Club the best-kept secret of the golf community.

The 2020 Club Championship is scheduled for the weekend of September 5th and 6, 2020. This year both the first and second rounds in the two-day tournament will be played at Los Caballeros. Only VGA members with a minimum of ten rounds played over the last year in VGA events are eligible for the title of VGA Club Champion and Cash Prizes. The starting time for each day is 8:00 and the greens fee for both rounds is $45.

The tournament will consist of two or three net flights based on the number of participants. Each flight will have around eight to ten players. If there are two flights in the tournament, then the first four places in each flight will be awarded prize money. If there are three flights, then the first three places in each flight will be awarded prize money. The prize money amounts will be $200 for first place, $150 for a second, $100 for third, and, if needed, $75 for fourth place.  Prize money will be awarded at the annual banquet in November.
