For those Arizona golfers looking to join a league or looking for another league to join.....this is your opportunity. The AZ THP community is starting a golf club.

449959E0-B3ED-4555-B988-E84711709832.jpeg
The goal is to have one outing at an AZ course each month (including Phx, Tucson, Flagstaff and other areas as we deem appropriate). Currently shooting for 3rd Sunday of every month but subject to change. This will take some time to get started. What we need to get started:

#1 Members (please post in this thread if interested)
#2 Bylaws (see draft below)
#3 Schedule

Most outings will be a skins game with both gross/net scores. We will also have a League Championship at the end of the year that will be both gross and net.

Requirements to join:

Be an Albatross Club Member on THP
AZGA GHIN (this will be covered by league dues)
If you do not reside in AZ but would like to participate in an outing, THP Albatross Club Members are welcome to particpate as long as they have a GHIN or Grint


Membership will be $50 annually which will cover - AZGA membership, small contribution to St. Jude and a league championship party.

Members will cover their own green fees (should be discounted) and entry fees to any skins game during that event.

I will update this first post with the following as we go:

I have researched what we will need to do. The first is to get at least ten members so let's get the word out.

Next are bylaws. I have created the following draft below (let me know your thoughts):

Hey, would you all like to play some regular golf with a bunch of THPers? If you haven't seen this thread, I hope you all consider joining the Arizona THP Golf League

@tanker337 @Snowman @fupresti @MSEASU @echico @tucsoncacti @azrsx @sourmash


We'd love all to have everyone join. If I missed you in the call out, that is a simple oversight on my part. I just did a quick run down of the Arizona THP that have posed in the local thread and listed their location as AZ.

I'm in.....not sure if I can make all events but I should be able to hit most.

Question.....so we will join via Az ghon site correct? And look up this group?
No need to make every event. The more members we have the better for consistent turnout.

Not yet. I have not officially sent in the paperwork yet. Need more members first. I will let everyone know when it is filed.

Great to have you.

As @Wildcat4life mentioned earlier, annual dues are $50. We have a Venmo account already set up for the league: AZTHP. There are no fees if you pay directly from your checking account or debit card; there is a fee for credit card transactions.

Can’t wait to see all of the AZ THP gang out on the course!!

Also, I'm lobbying to have some "Phoenix area" events at your "home course" Southern Dunes.
