Replacing the Net Amateur Championship on the WSGA schedule, the four-tournament WSGA Member Series will be open to both men and women with net and gross divisions using the Stableford scoring system at four of the state's premier golf venues.
Supported by the USGA’s five existing regional affairs offices, the AGAs will administer the USGA handicap and course rating systems within defined geographic areas across the country. They will also serve as the community’s primary resource for USGA services such as championship qualifiers, governance, golf facility support and programs that help grow and improve the long-term health of the game.
