Tournament Entry News:
Online tournament entry for the 2015 season is now closed for the winter. You can still log in to update the contact information in your entry profile.
The Long Island Golf Association’s on-line Tournament Entry system is very easy to use: click on the navy blue rectangle immediately above and it will take you to the sign in page. If you do not have a profile already stored in our system, click on the blue line that says "Click here to Register" and create your profile. Log out, log back in and start entering tournaments that you qualify for (if you don't qualify for an event, there won't be a check box for that event on the left of the tournament screen). Of course, if you already have a profile, you can log in immediately (Note: Always keep your profile up-to-date, particularly for mail address, e-mail address, and phone number.). Almost all of our tournaments require amateurs to have an active handicap index from your club or course (the only exceptions are the Junior, Boys and Girls Championships). Make sure your handicap is active before attempting to enter a tournament. Pay particular attention to this issue at the start of the golf season, when clubs/courses may be slow to activate handicaps for the new season.
To see complete results of previous years' tournaments, click on the words “Tournament Results: Previous Years” at the top of the page,
and then click on the year and then the event from the drop-down lists.
The Long Island Golf Association has partnered with the Golfweek Amateur Tour Metro NY. They manage a tour of golf tournaments for players of all handicap levels from scratch to over 20. Their tournaments are mostly on weekends at public courses. Check out their website at http://www.amateurgolftour.net/metrony_tour_pages/default6.asp to see their schedule and determine if joining their Tour makes sense for you.
