LEAGUE PLAY COMPETITION
It's More Than Just a Game
The VGA Tour is the largest, most authentic golf tour in North America for military veterans and their family members of all ages and skill levels. With more than thousands of members nationwide, the VGA Tour offers more than 300 local stroke-play golf tournaments a year, including a post season playoff schedule that culminates in a VGA Championship each year.
Launched in March of 2016, the VGA Tour is a national competitive golf league that is broken down into five divisions: veterans (male), combat wounded veterans (purple heart), veterans (female), seniors, and family members. Each VGA Tour local event will consist of an 18 hole tournament.
VGA Members from across North America compete at military, public, private, and semi-private golf courses such as Pinehurst, Chambers Bay, Black Wolf Run at Whistling Straits, Queenstown Harbour, Fallen Oak and many more.
What are the costs to participate on the VGA Tour?
First, a player must be a VGA member. The annual membership is $40, and is valid from March 1 thru October 31 each year. As a VGA member, you will have access to register for more than 300+ local VGA Tour tournaments and the ability to maintain a USGA equivalent handicap on our system.
Local VGA Tour costs - each tournament requires a $10 registration fee. Players are then required to pay for their greens fees and cart fees when they arrive to the course. Typically, those fees range from $35 to $55 per course, and are annotated on our tournament registration page when you sign up.
VGA Sub-Regional costs - each region will host a minimum of 3 sub-regional playoff tournaments prior to the VGA Regional Championships. The cost for competing in a VGA Sub-Regional is $99, and includes the greens fees and cart fees for 18 holes of competitive golf. Eligible players can compete in as many sub-regional competitions as they would like, given that there are slots available for them to do so. Approximately 40 Players will advance from each sub-regional to compete in a VGA Regional Championship.
VGA Regional Championship costs - each region will host a VGA Regional Championship for no less than 120 players that have advanced from their sub-regional tournaments. The cost for competing in a VGA Regional Championship is $199, and includes the greens fees and cart fees for 36 holes of competitive golf. Eligible players can compete in any VGA Regional Championship regardless of the region they reside in, given there is space availability to do so and they have participated in a sub-regional event during the same year. Each VGA Regional Championship will advance 20 players to compete in the VGA National Championship.

VGA National Championship costs - Approximately 80 players (20 from each region – North, South, Central, and West) will compete in the annual VGA National Championship. The VGA covers the following costs for players that advance to the VGA Championship: food, lodging & golf. Players are responsible for their own travel to and from the VGA Championship. Players are also required to bring a money order payable to the VGA for $100, which helps the VGA cover the costs associated with bags and gifts for the participants. Best of luck on the VGA Tour!
