The Arizona Golf Foundation’s focus is on the Arizona Golf Hall of Fame, the Patriot All-America, supporting research on turf that improves and benefits the environment as well as the economic benefits of golf in Arizona.
Started in 2011 and known as the Patriot, it is a 54-hole amateur golf tournament held annually in Arizona with a field of 82 competitors which features PING All-Americans from the previous season in NCAA Divisions I, II and III, as well as All-Americans from the NAIA, NJCAA and AJGA ranks.

The Hall of Fame Committee consists of representatives from five of the allied golf associations serving golf in Arizona; Arizona Golf Association, Cactus & Pine Golf Course Superintendents, Club Managers Association, Junior Golf Association of Arizona and the Southwest Section PGA. The Arizona Golf Association created the Arizona Golf Hall of Fame in 1968. Since that time, there have been 72 individuals inducted.
