Tournament Entry News:
The 2014 golf season is quickly approaching. Online tournament entry is now open!
The Long Island Golf Association’s on-line Tournament Entry system is very easy to use: click on the navy blue rectangle below 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.).
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.
