The AGA Tournament Committee reserves the right to alter any of the conditions and schedules herein. The decision of the AGA in any matter shall be final.
We wish to bring to your attention, or remind you, that when a club graciously agrees to host an AGA championship or USGA qualifying event, it does so at no cost to the either the player or the association.  Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself appropriately while a guest and take responsibility in the same regard for anyone accompanying you.Also, please be advised that clubs are operating in certain aspects at the direction of the AGA and any complaints regarding availability of cart, fees paid, or available practice times should be directed to the AGA and not the club staff. Thank you for your consideration of all the above. We hope you have a pleasant and successful competition.

Maximum allowable handicap index is 36.0 strokes under the USGA Golf Handicap System. The AGA will be the final authority in determining whether or not a handicap that has been submitted qualifies as an “approved USGA handicap”.

4. Anyone intending on renting a mobility scooter should call us, 205-979-1234, and let us know ahead of time. We will then make contact with the host club on your behalf and make arrangements to receive the vehicle, store and charge it overnight, and have it available for use the following day.
5. When on the course with the scooter, you must remain on the cart path at all times and stay up with the group you are following so as not to disturb play of the group immediately behind.
6. You need to be aware of all play around you when starting the scooter to ensure you don’t disturb other competitors.

For further information regarding carts, please refer to the Cart Policy provided as part of the player packet given to players at registration.
