2. San Tan Amateur
Last year, the top finisher, Mason Nam edged out four competitors by one-stroke to win the 2016 San Tan Amateur.

Not only is the tournament open to Amateur adults, but the competition will also feature top junior talent from ages 11 to 18.

4. Heart and Sol Celebrity Golf Tournament 
Hosted by former Major League Pitcher, Russ Ortiz, the 2017 Heart and Sol Celebrity Golf Tournament was created to honor small business and community leader, Yolanda Collazos Kizer who was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD,) a disease with no cure and few treatment options. The golf tournament in partnership with the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, helps raise funds for research, support and advocacy for those affected by FTD. The 2017 Heart and Sol Celebrity Golf Tournament takes place on February 17, at the Legacy Golf Resort in Phoenix.

There is plenty to look forward to this spring with the golf season in full swing. For more information about the AGA, additional events and member benefits, please visit www.azgolf.org.
