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 75,000 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.

Our mission is to service association, club and invitational events, provide rules education, compile sample operational advisories, checklist and provide Rules support for all levels of competition. 


This is a combined AGA/JGAA services group positioned to ensure the highest quality tournament governance under the Rules of Golf managed by the joint Associations. The primary job is to:
  •  Ensure officials are competent for each assignment through training and on-course experience.
  • Maintain a list of officials and their skill ratings, availability, preferred areas of work that includes all pertinent contact information.
  • Facilitate assignments of officials to events sponsored by the two golf Associations in Arizona and selected other events.
  • Act as a conduit to officials when organizations other than the three golf Associations wish assistance with events.
  • Provide a Tournament Operations Manual and example support documents for use by clubs, event management and by rules officials.
