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.
Founded in 1983, the Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA) introduces Arizona’s youth to the game of golf and helps junior golfers develop golf and life skills through competitive programs and tournaments. In addition to developing programs at schools and assisting Arizona golf courses with their junior programs, the JGAA conducts more than 100 programs and activities, including etiquette clinics, tournaments, and college prep seminars throughout Arizona each year.
The AWGA was born in 1924 governed by a Board of Directors elected from three regions in the state of Arizona: Northern, Central, and Southern. The mission is to inspire and encourage women to engage in the game of golf. The vision will have the opportunity to experience the joys of golf in every stage of life.
