Frequently Asked Questions
How do I join The Austin Golf Association (AGA) and what are the membership fees?
Players of any skill level can join the AGA by going to our website at http://www.austingolfassociation.com/ and clicking on the Join/Renew button. You will be taken to the Texas Golf Association website to sign up.
What Skill Level is required for AGA?
All skill levels are welcome. We group tournament players in flights based on similar handicaps in an effort to make all flights as competitive as possible.
Are Guests/Non-Members allowed to Play in AGA Events?
Guests and/or Non-Members are welcome to play in ALL AGA Events except for the Club Championship or Match Play events. Non-Members are invited to play one regular stroke play AGA tournament prior to joining the league.
How are pairings created & can I play with a friend or group?
We make every effort to honor pairing and time requests. In order to maintain a good pace of play we try to avoid pairing up handicaps and tee boxes that are too far apart (1st flight and 3rd/4th flight, etc.) and ultimately will work to accommodate pairing requests so we can ensure the best playing experience for everyone.
How do you cancel or withdraw from an event?
Deadlines to withdraw from an event are based on course contracts. Players who cancel after the course's contract deadline will incur fees based on charges to AGA. Please notify the Tournament Director immediate, cancel via the confirmation link from Golf Genius or email 'contact us' if you are unable to play. Late withdrawals or no-shows may incur Green Fee penalty at their next event.
