USGA’s Stroke and Distance: New Local Rule is now the rule for standard VGA events play: Drop two club lengths in the fairway from the point the player believes the ball was lost. The drop is not supposed to be any closer to the hole. The player must take a two-stroke penalty. You may not use this rule if you have hit a provisional ball or your ball is lost in a penalty location. The rule has been recommended by the USGA and R&A to speed up play. For more information, refer to this video. The Desert rule will no longer be used as a VGA local rule.

John Pierce Green Valley Open Tournament. Click here for more info.

The John Pierce Open Tournament is a stroke play tournament, usually held in late May or early June at venues typically in or around the Green Valley, Arizona area. A tournament is a three-day event covering Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a practice round on Thursday for those invited to participate. The VGA recognizes this event as an official tournament and all individual scores are posted daily as tournament scores in accordance with USGA rules. However, the VGA Board of Directors has designated this event only for the purpose of counting these rounds towards the 10 VGA rounds required for eligibility to play in the Club Championship. This means there are no Big Dog points awarded or hole-in-one prizes awarded. The VGA treasury does not contribute funds for this tournament. Entry fees are collected from participants and prizes paid to winners in amounts solely determined by the event coordinator.
