JPO EVENT VGA HISTORY AND 2022 TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

John Pierce, “Mr. Cheese”

John Pierce is a one-of-a-kind VGA member that started the tournament over 35 years ago.  The VGA has embraced this event to honor all its past and present members.  We traditionally schedule this event on Memorial Day weekend because many of the founding VGA members served in the Armed forces. What a better way to honor John, his love for the club, our membership growth, and comradery by playing golf!!!

The JPO annual golf tournament is a 3- day stroke play tournament at some of the nicest courses in Southern AZ.  Players can choose to play all 3 days or can compete in any single-day tournament event. 

The VGA board of directors made a few changes for this year’s event including all VGA members can enjoy a normal Saturday, out-of-town golf tournament with Big Dog points available. The board authorized an additional $500 prize fund paid out to only VGA members per flight who participate in all 3 days of the tournament.

The entry fee is $60.00 for the 3-day event + Green fees for each course.   The $ 60 payout will be for day money flighted, a total 3 day low net per flight, and a special two-day blind draw on Friday and Saturday. Payouts will be determined by the total player count.  Awards will be paid out after play at San Ignacio, including the extra $ 500 additional funds.  Each individual day play will have a mandatory $ 15 per day entry fee for Friday / Saturday and Sunday will be $ 10.  The Saturday Big Dog points will be awarded.  An optional side pot will be available for $10 each day.
