OGA Tour

  1. How do I qualify for the OGA Tour Championship?

    The OGA Tour Championship is invitation-only based off of season points earned during the OGA Tour Season. Players also earn 10 participation points for each event.

    In the Individual Series, invitations will be extended to the top 20 players in each Division, Open and Senior.

    In the Partner Series, invitations will be extended to the top 10 players on the points list. It is assumed that the qualifying player will play with the same partner in the Championship as played with during the season.

    If a qualifying player had multiple playing partners during the season, the qualifying player must identify which player he/she would like to play with at the Championship.

    If no playing partners are available, the new playing partner must have played in at least one OGA Tour event.

    If after 10 players on the points list we do not have 10 teams, we will move down the points list until we have 10 teams that have accepted the invitation. A maximum of 10 teams per division will play in the OGA Tour Championship.

  2. Does the entry fee include the cost of a power cart?

    No. The entry fee covers your greens fee and money towards the merchandise payout. The fee for a power cart will be paid when you arrive at the course.

  3. Do I have to be an OGA member to participate?

    No. OGA Tour events are open to anyone who would like to participate. However, OGA members receive a discount on entry fees.

  4. Can I participate without a handicap?

    Yes. OGA Tour events use handicaps to break the fields into flights. If you do not have an active membership with the OGA, you will participate in flight one of the division signed up for and only eligible to compete in the gross competition.

  5. Are there divisions?

    Yes. At each event there is an Open and a Senior Division. The Open Division is open to all ages and the Senior Division is open to all players 50 years and older as of the day of the event. Depending on the size of the field, divisions are broken into flights determined by handicap.

  6. What is the competition format?

    The OGA Tour offers an individual and a partner series. The individual series plays 18 holes of stroke play. The partner series plays a fourball competition, in which two competitors play as a team, each playing their own ball. The lowest score of the partners is the score for the hole. Top gross and net finishers in each flight are awarded merchandise payouts.

  7. Do I need to join the OGA Tour?

    No. The OGA Tour is open to all golfers and does not require you to join the tour to participate. The number of events you play in is entirely up to the player.

  8. What is the OGA Tour?

    The OGA Tour is a casual competition offering events from April to September. It is available to Men, Women, Seniors and Juniors of all ages and skill levels. The OGA Tour culminates with a year-end Tour Championship each year held at a prestigious OGA Member facility.
