PREVIEW: 2010 Championship Golf Association

Championship Golf Association2010 looks like a great year for the Championship Golf Association! With new members already registered and some new courses on the schedule at discounted rates (like Tanglewood National, a course Fuzzy Zoeller once remarked was ready to host the US Open, and the Devlin Course at Quail Hollow, the host course of the Ohio Open), it is truly an “Open” season.

The CGA has also restructured its membership system in order to make it easier and more cost effective for our players.

We have a season membership at $190 which covers your membership fees for the year and your event and skins game entry fees for five events.

Or players can “pay as you play” and each event will be a $5 fee with a one-time $5 registration fee for the year, due at your first event. This will make the entry fee to get into “everything” $40, which includes the Event Pot and Skins. (CGA Players are responsible for their green fees, and many courses allow walking if you want to save a few more bucks.)

The CGA also offers a competitive A flight ($25 for everything) for players 7 handicap and above, but all players play at “scratch” for their flight so no net scores to worry about.

The CGA also has a state-of-the-art computer scoring system, so results are available within minutes of completion of play.

Our tournaments range all over Northeast Ohio, so I am sure you will find an event in your area. And the CGA remains the only amateur member-based tournament series to offer cash payouts for optional wagers.

Our first event is Sunday May 2nd at Chippewa GC, in Doylestown OH, just a short ride down US 21 for our Cleveland players. For more information and to register for events, visit online at or call 440-393-6043.
