Dear VGA Members,

We welcome you to our annual TPO, Memorial Two-Day Tournament located @ Gold Canyon Resort and Spa.  The event is open to members only and guests are welcome but ineligible for prize money

Net total score event w/ Treasury paying out $2,000 over 10 places in each flight (20).  Gold Canyon Golf Resort and Spa gives members the option to stay & play or simply participate in a single-day event if preferable.

We booked tee times Friday, 5/24/2024 for an optional practice round, not mandatory.   

Tournament includes both Gold Canyon Resort courses; Sidewinder, May 24th Practice Round, Dinosaur Mountain on Saturday, May 25th, & concluding on Sidewinder, Sunday, May 26th

In addition to TPO, we will hold our normal day-money event w/Big Dog Points on Saturday only.  Entry fees are standard $15.00 paying top three spots in both flights, skins & CTPs.  Sunday’s event follows same format w/o Big Dog Points.  Optional side pots offered both days.  PLEASE NOTE: There is NO ENTRY FEE into the TPO 2-day event. 

Rest assured, Head Pro states both courses will be in fantastic condition during this time.

The beauty of the golf courses is top notch & worth the trip alone if never played. 

We hope as many members as possible can attend & look forward to great competition & most importantly, a memorable & fun experience. 

Thank you,

VGA Board


Two-Man Best Ball Tournament for Quarter One, 2024

Dates:  Saturday, February 17th @ Encanto.  Wednesday, March 13th @ Aguila.

Don Peterson’s 2-Man Better Ball is a golf tournament for members only. The tournament takes place on two designated days, one on a Wednesday and one on a Saturday. The tournament director arranges the two-man teams based on the participant’s handicap. The teams comprise one player with the highest handicap and one with the lowest handicap until the two players in the middle of the list are paired. The team’s score is determined by taking the lowest net score on each of the eighteen holes. The team with the lowest net score wins the tournament. There are prizes for the first three teams. The first-place team wins $100.00, the second-place team wins $60.00, and the third-place team wins $40.00. Prizes are awarded for both the Wednesday and Saturday tournaments following the completion of play.
