About the FSGA
The Florida State Golf Association (FSGA) was formed in 1913 to promote, protect, and preserve the game of golf. The FSGA includes more than 800 member clubs and 230,000 individual members.
In 2012, the FSGA and the Florida Women's State Golf Association merged to form the largest state or regional association in the country. The FSGA conducts more than 520 tournament days each year, including 38 state championships, and over 45 days of USGA qualifying events.
Officers, Board of Directors, and Staff
The FSGA is governed by a volunteer Executive Committee and Board of Directors of approximately 25 individuals. Board members include rules officials, course rating officials, competitive golfers, and men and women of all ages from throughout Florida. Board members are elected at the association's annual dinner, and may serve up to two consecutive three-year terms. The Board and staff are further guided by an Advisory Committee comprised of between ten and twenty individuals. The staff of the FSGA is headquartered in Tampa and additional staff members are located in southeast and southwest Florida.

In 2004, the FSGA launched the Florida Junior Tour (FJT) for the benefit of junior golfers throughout the state. The FSGA organizes and conducts high-quality, affordable competitions for junior golfers in Florida. The Tour continually emphasizes to the players the best values of the game including integrity, honesty, and personal responsibility. The junior golfers playing on the tour are some of the finest players in the country, and the FJT serves as a proving ground for their future in the game.
The association also actively cooperates with the United States Golf Association, PGA of America, International Association of Golf Administrators, Golf Course Superintendent’s Association, and other golf-serving associations.
We encourage you to join the FSGA and help support our effort to promote, protect, and preserve the game of golf for this and future generations.
