Each year the GSGA conducts 23 competitions that are open for statewide participation for men and women of all ages and skill levels, four interstate team competitions, a statewide junior program for boys and girls and qualifying events for all USGA national championships.
Though not a branch office, the GSGA serves as the arm of the USGA in Georgia. The GSGA conducts all USGA qualifying rounds in Georgia and helps administer the rules of golf through seminars and general inquiries. The GSGA is licensed to issue USGA Handicap Indexes through its Member Clubs in Georgia.
We encourage everyone to read the following documents before entering an event. The documents contain guidelines that competitors must abide by during GSGA events.
At the conclusion of each season, the GSGA recognizes Players of the Year for Men, Women, Senior Men, Super Senior Men, Senior Women, Junior Boys and Junior Girls during a luncheon following its Annual Meeting. The Tommy Barnes Award is presented to the overall Player of the Year.
As a service to GSGA Member Clubs and to golfers in Georgia, the GSGA provides an online Competitions Clearinghouse. Major events at GSGA Member Clubs (invitationals, regional tournaments, etc.) for men, women, seniors, and juniors can be included in the Clearinghouse.
Georgia State Golf Association is the official golf association of the state of Georgia, and its membership is open to men, women, juniors, seniors, and golf clubs throughout the state. Golfers who join GSGA have access to invaluable resources and competitions that allow them to advance their knowledge and improve their golfing skills. Joining GSGA means joining an association of more than 350 clubs and 75,000 people who all have one thing in common: a love of golf.
