Hilton Head Island Amateur Golf Association
Connecting amateur golfers in the Hilton Head Island and Beaufort County areas
The HHIAGA was founded in 1983 to give amateur male golfers in the Hilton Head area the opportunity to meet fellow golfers, compete in tournaments and play some of the area's best courses. Our membership now numbers about 220 and is open to Beaufort County full-time residents and property owners, ages 18 and older. We offer senior divisions and all tournaments are flighted and handicapped so that all can compete within their skill level.
The association has a full slate of tournaments for 2014 at some of the areas finest golf courses; Dolphin Head Golf and Country Club, Callawassie Country Club, Bear Creek Golf Club, Moss Creek Country Club, Chechessee Creek Club,Oyster Reef Golf Club and Oldfield Golf and Country Club. For those interested in Honors Cup participation there will be four tournaments to earn points or status for the event. As usual we will be assisting the HHIPGA with the 2014 Hilton Head Open and the 2014 pro-scratch tournament to be held at Bear Creek Golf Club and Haig Point on Dafuskie Island respectively. For more information regarding each tournament you can click on the tournaments tab. Before you can register for a tournament you must be a paid member of tne association, you can register and pay your 2014 dues by going to the register now tab.
I want to address dues and tournament registration payment. The reason we do not accept credit card payment through Pay-Pal, BOA credit card program or any other program is because the lowest rate we can get for our volume is 3 1/2% which translates to approximately $1,600.00 over the course of our season - I will not take that kind of money away from our events! We pay via check or cash and in 2014 I "WILL NOT" accept payment after deadline - we have commitments to the Clubs for expected volumes (rain or shine). If you want to participate this year have your check or cash to me in time.
I would like to introduce the HHIAGA staff: Bob Collar - Director, Richard Kerr - Legal Counsel, Happ Lathrop and Biff Lathrop (SCGA) - Policy, Regulations and Amateur Status, Scott Stilwell - USGA Rules and Officiating, John Farrell (Harbour Town Golf Links) - Local representative for Policy, Regulations and Amateur Status and Tony Calhoun - Administrative and Web page.
Looking forward to some new members, new tournaments, new venues and a lot of good golf and fun in 2014.
