Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be an OGA member to participate?
No. OGA Tour events are open to anyone who would like to participate. However, OGA members receive a discount on entry fees. There is also an early-bird discount for signing up before the early-bird deadline.
Can I participate without a handicap?
Yes. OGA Tour events use handicaps to break the fields into flights. A full field event (80 players) will have 4 flights. Two in the Open Division and two in the Senior Division. If you do not have an active membership with the OGA, you will only participate in flight one of the gross competition in the division you register for.
Are there divisions?
Yes. At each event there is an Open and a Senior Division. The Open Division is open to all ages and the Senior Division is open to all players 50 years and older as of the day of the event. Depending on the size of the field, divisions are broken into flights determined by handicap.
What is the competition format?
The OGA Tour offers an individual and a partner series. The individual series plays 18 holes of stroke play. The partner series plays a fourball competition, in which two competitors play as a team, each playing their own ball. The lowest score of the partners is the score for the hole. Top gross and net finishers in each flight are awarded merchandise payouts.
Do I need to join the OGA Tour?
No. The OGA Tour is open to all golfers and does not require you to “join the tour” to participate. The number of events you play in is entirely up to the player.
