PGA Golf Management Tournament Program
We offer a full tournament schedule organized and implemented by the Tournament Committee. It consists of a faculty advisor, a PGA Golf Management student director and volunteer students who wish to gain a further understanding of the intricacies of operating successful golf tournaments. The tournaments are divided into weekly competitions designated as the Monarch Tour (a weekly competition), the Club Championship, the Monarch Cup, the Player’s Classic and the Spring Shoot-Out. We also host four PGA Playing Ability tests; two in the fall and two in the spring.
The Monarch Tour
The Monarch Tour is a series of weekly, 9-hole tournaments, designed for player development and skill improvement. There are ten (10) tournaments scheduled for each semester. The tournament formats consists of individual and team competition. There is no entry fee for the Monarch Tour. Golf shop credit is issued as the payout and a point system is employed to reward the top players. Top players make up the Jones Cup team that travels to the PGA Golf Club.

The Major Tournaments are events for individuals and teams usually conducted on the weekends. The Club Championship is a match play format, the Monarch Cup is a 12 man team event that models after the Ryder Cup, the Winter Classic is a two man event involving several formats and the Spring Shoot-Out is a 6 man team event that includes a skills contest held the Friday before the team matches.
