GSGA Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

May 4, 2020 - On March 20, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GSGA made the decision to postpone or cancel all activities and events through May 15. We want to take this opportunity to update everyone on our current plans for May and beyond.

As the country and state of Georgia begin to "re-open", the GSGA continues to rely on publicly available information from the CDC and government officials, along with monitoring changing health and operational circumstances in our state. The health and well-being of everyone involved with our activities remains our highest priority and guides all organizational decisions. In continuing our conservative approach, we have made the decision to extend the postponement or cancellation of all GSGA activities beyond May 15. That said, we are cautiously optimistic about announcing the following plan to try and conduct GSGA activities in the coming weeks:

GSGA Junior Tour competitions are now postponed or canceled through June 7. The Junior Tour will attempt to resume competitions on June 8, but will make a final determination regarding our resumption date by May 18. Registration for all our Junior Tour events is currently available. This information will continually be updated, but please CLICK HERE to review a current list of rescheduled Junior Tour events, including revised event details and policies. 

GSGA Competitions will resume on June 15 with qualifying for the Georgia Amateur Championship. Registration for many competitions is currently open while registration for the Georgia Amateur, Georgia Mid-Amateur and Georgia Junior Championships will resume May 6 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. Please CLICK HERE to review a list of rescheduled and canceled events, including revised event details, registration procedures and policies.

GSGA Member Play Days have been canceled for 2020. We look forward to putting together a great lineup of sites and resuming this popular GSGA Member Benefit next year.

Note: Individuals that are currently registered to participate in events impacted by this decision should have already received, or will receive, a separate email communication from the GSGA office with more information.

Please understand that we are making this announcement with the best of intentions and the strong desire to begin conducting events in the near future, but there are circumstances out of our control by which we may be required to abandon this proposed plan, delay our resumption, and cancel or postpone further events in 2020. As we have continued to state, our top priority in attempting to resume activities is the health and safety of all involved, and we will be working to ensure that all of our GSGA activities and events incorporate precautionary measures that promote social distancing and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This will require us to modify certain policies and procedures and alter how we conduct our events for the foreseeable future. We will continue to monitor publicly available guidance from the CDC as well as government officials and will share more detailed information in the coming weeks on what specific measures we will put into place prior to our resumption of events.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you on the course very soon.
