Akron District Golf Association

ADGA Director Tim DavisADGAThe 2012 Akron District Golf Association Tournament Schedule is now posted at and the Registration Page is now active. We welcome players to the ADGA website to sign up for any or all of the scheduled events.

Once again in 2012, the ADGA will offer a Players Membership. The cost of membership is $50.00. While membership is not required to enter and compete in ADGA events, only ADGA members receive Ungvary Cup Points and Golfer of the Year qualifying points. Members also have the opportunity to obtain points in certain non-ADGA events.

The 2012 tournament schedule features five regular season events, as well as our season-ending invitational, the ADGA Golfer of the Year. Yet again, the Golfer of the Year event will be contested over three days at Firestone Country Club. Top earners in the Golfer of the Year points races will be offered a chance to compete in this premium event.

Senior Membership will also be offered in 2012. Members (and non-member tournament participants) at least 50 years of age will have the opportunity to compete in the Senior Division. For team events, both players must be at least 50 years of age prior to Saturday,May 5th, 2012, to be eligible.

Payouts and Points remain high for 2012 to make our events more appealing than other tournaments. As in 2012, the amount of the 1st through 10th place is established prior to the event with depth of payouts dependent on the size of the field. For individual events, first place ties are decided by sudden-death playoffs immediately after completion of play and continuing until the tie is broken, balance of finishing positions are split as necessary. Team event first place ties split the corresponding place.

As in 2011, ADGA Members will receive Ungvary Cup and GOY Points in select non-ADGA events. These points are only open to ADGA Members and will be awarded at the completion of each tournament. Points will be awarded in order of finish among Player Member participants. Points will be awarded in both the junior and senior players divisions.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to get an official USGA Handicap Index. The ADGA offers this service through the GHIN Handicap Program in cooperation with the Northern Ohio Golf Association (NOGA). This service enables you to post your scores throughout the season either at the facility you play or over the Internet. The Handicap Fee for 2012 is $20. Click Here to register!
