The next two years will bring major changes to the CDGA in both our membership and our role in growing the game.
Since its beginning in 1938 only private clubs made up the CDGA. In 2017 we will be inviting public golf courses in twenty-one central Ohio counties to become members of the CDGA. This will allow us to provide handicaps, course ratings and tournament opportunities to many more golfers.
The United States Golf Association has approved a collaboration between the Ohio Golf Association and the CDGA starting in 2018. This will streamline some areas where the two associations overlap. In addition, the combined resources will be more effective in implementing USGA “Grow the Game” initiatives.
The CDGA will still be conducting its own events just like in the past. Our tournaments offer opportunities to play different member courses in competitive events. The season starts with the Old Pal Scramble at York GC on May 11. New this year is a Senior 4-man team event. I encourage you to check out the entire schedule in this book or online at cdgagolf.org. For your convenience all entries can be done online.
