It isn’t often that you see this. Four golfers from VGA hitting the same spot on a drive from the tee box. Fred Baldwin, John Euler, Larry Burton, and Steve Richter accomplished this feat today (February 7th, 2018) on the Ocotillo Blue Course hole #3. Very well done gentlemen. This is hard to do for Pros let alone guys in VGA but it happens.
Ron Amstutz and friends got an opportunity to play in the Phoenix Open ProAm event on January 31, 2018, at the TPC Stadium course. Video
Having captured the 2017 Masters, Sergio Garcia deserves his spot on VGA Media.

Today, I just played an awesome course on the Black Sea in Bulgaria called Thracian Cliffs. I thought I would send some pictures as several of the VGA members that knew I was going asked me to send pictures. You can post if you want. Thanks, Ron Amstutz. Here’s a web link to the resort. Awesome http://www.thraciancliffs.com/

VGA Golfers are talented fishermen too
Jim O’Keefe passed away yesterday at 11:30 Am. He was hospitalized and did not recover from the effects of pneumonia and old age. I’ve met a few people in my time, but never any as nice and personable as this gentle soul. He will be missed by all that knew him. VGA expresses condolences to his family and friends. I cannot imagine your sorrow. RIP Jim, March 23rd, 2016

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.
Let’s have a great turnout! Make your plans to attend now! Players that are not eligible for the title of VGA Champion are welcome to play both days as well.
