UGA Fore-1-1: 4/7/2016

By Kelsey Chugg

It’s Masters Week, so I’ll keep it short. Here is a little bit of the latest news and happenings from the UGA:

1. Renewals

It isn’t too late to renew. You can still renew online or by calling the UGA office at 801-563-0400. You will be able to keep your old GHIN number, but you will have to pay a $5 reinstatement fee. You can find out more about the membership calendar and structure HERE.

2. Tony Finau

All of our staff would like to wish former Utah State Amateur Champion, Tony Finau, a huge congratulations for his recent win in Puerto Rico. Tony won his first PGA Tour event, the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach, in a 3-hole playoff against the veteran, Steve Marino. Although Tony did not receive an exemption into The Masters for his win, we know that it won’t be long until his talent takes him there.

You can keep an eye on Tony, and the rest of the tour players with Utah ties, by visiting each week and reading the news stories that recap the events.

3. Tournaments

The next UGA championship is the Women’s Spring Open, which will be held April 18-19 at Coral Canyon and Green Spring. For more information or to register CLICK HERE.

The USGA recently opened up the US Open and US Women’s Open qualifying applications. You can read more and apply to play HERE.

There are many upcoming tournaments throughout the state that are open to golfers of all skill levels. If you are interested in learning more about local events you can visit the Men’s Public Schedule or the Women’s Public Schedule.

4. 2016 Member Benefits

You may have noticed that your membership card no longer has checkboxes next to the deals and discounts offered by courses and businesses. This was changed to make it easier for our partners to be creative with their offerings and to improve your experience by letting you use their offers an unlimited number of times. If you are interested in viewing this year’s benefits, you can view them on the Member Benefits page or you can download the Member Benefits PDF.

5. GHIN Mobile App

Have you downloaded the GHIN Mobile App? It is the easiest way to post scores and track your handicap. You can get it for free today by going to the “App Store” on your mobile device. Once you download it, you will need to enter your GHIN number to load your personal information.

6. UGA Member Days

Have you checked out the 2016 UGA Member Days schedule? Member Days are non-competitive outings that give you the opportunity to play some of Utah’s best private clubs. You can even get some friends together and request to be paired in the same group. If you are interested in learning more you can learn more and sign up on the UGA Member Days page!
