VGA invites Men and women to come out and play with VGA.
The Valley Golfers Association is a community of golf enthusiasts based in the Phoenix region since 1978. Our members include both skilled low handicappers and casual weekend players, totaling to over 175 people. The VGA is an Arizona Golf Association club and follows the guidelines and regulations for golf set by the United States Golf Association. All members of VGA must belong to the AGA and pay the VGA’s annual dues.
The VGA offers prearranged handicap tournaments twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Men and women who are eligible to play may enter the tournaments by paying a small entry fee. Depending on the number of participants, prize money is awarded to the lowest two or three net scores, which are determined by the GHIN handicap system. However, if someone is not interested in playing the tournament, they may choose to pay $1.00 to the VGA, which allows them to enter the closest-to-the-pin contest. Interested players can participate in every event or select only those events that suit their schedule, as there is no obligation to play every week.
We play at several courses across the valley. All of our events are scheduled quarterly, and we reserve our tee times. During the winter months, we play at courses like Coldwater, Union Hills, Ken MacDonald, and Viewpoint. In the summer months, we schedule games at more exclusive courses when the fees are lower, such as Troon North, Grayhawk, Whirlwind, and The Phoenician.
The VGA is constantly seeking to grow its membership. If you’re interested in participating in a VGA event, all you need to do is click on the ONLINE ENTRY FORM link, choose a course, and pick a day you wish to play. You can then ask to play as a guest by paying a guest fee and accepting a 7-day advance reservation for tee times. Come and enjoy a round of golf with us, and you may decide to become a member. As one of our players said, “I have a tee time every Wednesday and Saturday with friends, and all I have to do is tell them I’m playing, show up, and play. Best deal in town!”
