Our New Partnership with Snell Golf

The Arizona Golf Association Announces a new agreement with Snell Golf 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Arizona Golf Association is proud to announce a new partnership with Snell Golf.

Snell Golf, a golf ball company committed to developing premium golf balls at affordable, direct pricing, was founded by Dean Snell in March 2015 after he spent more than 28 years in golf ball research and development.

"Dean Snell and the team at Snell Golf are thrilled to partner with the AGA," said Snell Golf Director of Marketing Jason Almeida. "The Arizona golf market is such an incredible environment with a passionate golfing community. It is a hotbed of amazing, talented amateur players who we believe will appreciate the performance and value of our premium golf balls. We are excited to become more involved there and to support the AGA in all of their upcoming events."

Snell golf balls will be provided to AGA members at all the AGA Golf Days, the 59th Annual Father/Son Championship in June 2018, as well as other events to promote golf in the Valley. The relationship will allow AGA members to have the opportunity to receive a premium ball and for Snell Golf to showcase and share their story. 

"We are very excited to work with Snell Golf to provide opportunities for our members to receive a high quality golf ball at AGA events, receive access and value from Snell Golf products, and to improve their golf game," said AGA Director of Marketing Partnerships Chris Montgomery.

ABOUT THE ARIZONA GOLF ASSOCIATION

What started as a small group of golfers who got together to run the annual Amateur Championship has grown to an association of more than 400 clubs and 55,000 members. Today the AGA is a volunteer-based organization directed by amateur golfers passionately dedicated to promoting the game of golf and providing valuable benefits and services to its members.
