AGA TOUR EVENTS
For those that love to compete

AGA Tour Events consist of our major championships and non-major two-day competitions. Majors are played at scratch; non-majors are flighted based on handicap.

Our "divisional" tour events are divided into age divisions: Open (played at 6700 yards or longer), Masters (ages 45-54 and played at 6400 - 7000 yards), Senior (ages 55-64 and played at 6300 - 6800 yards) and Legends (age 65 and older and played at 6000-6400 yards).


USGA QUALIFYING

For those that aspire to play in USGA Championships

The AGA conducts USGA qualifying rounds throughout the year: the US Open, US Senior Open, US Amateur, US Senior Amateur, US Mid-Amateur and US Four-Ball championships.

Entries to US qualifiers are handled through the United States Golf Association.

SENIOR CUP SERIES

For those 55 and older that enjoy playing team competition (Four-Ball format)

This series of one-day four-ball events (better ball of partners) are for members 55 and older with a handicap index of 36.4 and under.

Events take place between April and September - teams accumulate points for their net finish in each event. The points accumulate individually so you don't have to play with the same partner for the entire series. Top point winners are invited to a season-ending championship.


CLUB TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

For those that like to play with fellow club members - Scramble format

This is a very popular team challenge among AGA member clubs.

The format is a two-person scramble and is flighted based on team handicap. Clubs can choose their teams in any manner they choose. A series of qualfiers take place throughout the state in October and November. The final 52 teams duke it out at the beginning of December, usually at a very nice private club.


MEMBER DAYS

For those that just want to play non-competitive golf with friends

Member days are an opportunity for our members to play golf at a facility that is interested in hosting us for the day. They may be a private clubs where members don't normally have access to, or they may be at a public facility that wants to support our membership.

There is no organized competition - just an opportunity to come out and play with friends and enjoy a day of golf.

Two times a year (March and October) we host a member weekend at Mayan Palace, 20 miles south of Rocky Point, Mexico home of Vidanta Golf Course, a fabulous Jack Nicklaus design.


SANCTIONED EVENTS

There are several competitive tournaments held throughout the state that are available to AGA members. Those that are considered Sanctioned are ones that have strong participation by our tournament players.  The AGA has no role in Sanctioned Events other than to allocate points to participating AGA members.
Organizations hosting events may become Sanctioned by submitting an application to the AGA


OTHER NATIONAL OR REGIONAL EVENTS

As a courtesy to our members, we post other regional or national championships or events that may be of interest. We provide contact information for those interested in getting more information about the tournament.

The 100th Southwestern Amateur will be hosted at Desert Mountain-Geronimo and Cochise Courses June 8-13. More information and entry

CHARITY EVENTS

Golf facilities host over 1,000 charity events throughout the year. We provide an opportunity to charity organizers to highlight and promote their charities and their charitable golf tournaments. Any charity interested in listing their event on our website should contact the AGA office.
