ASGA $25 Prize Certificates will be awarded to the winners.  Prize Certificates are good toward $25 off your annual ASGA dues, $25 off any upcoming ASGA-National-sponsored multi-chapter event for up to one year later, or an ASGA-logoed golf shirt (incl. shipping). Certificates are good a bit beyond one year after this event is over and are non-transferrable and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. Prize certificates are not valid for ASGA cruises or local chapter events.

Golf Club Storage.  The hotel will store your golf clubs upon arrival so you don't have to take your clubs to your hotel room. When you get to The Westin, leave your clubs with the bell stand or leave in your car. Make sure your name is on your golf bag.  Also, make sure you have your name on each of your clubs. ASGA provides a set of 14 labels as part of your membership. If you don't have your name and contact phone on each of your clubs, go here to order a set. Allow 7-10 days for processing. When you leave the hotel to return home, be sure to remember to pack your clubs!  

ASGA or the staff at any of our courses reserve the right to modify the time of play schedule based on the number of players as we get closer to the event. Simply put, if we don't have enough for a shotgun, we may have to have straight tee times.
