Members of the Rochester District Golf Association have many exciting tournament options to plan for in the year ahead with the release of the official 2018 RDGA Tournament Schedule on January 1.
REGISTRATION OPENS on FEBRUARY 15!
ONE OF THE NEW FEATURES OF THIS YEAR'S RDGA TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE is the introduction of the new USGA TOURNAMENT MANAGEMENT system as our primary registration and scoring home! Tournament Management - or TM for short - replaces our previous scoring system, BLUE GOLF. We are confident that you will find TM - as we do - to be every bit as easy to navigate as Blue Golf...and, in many ways, even better!
So, as we convert our Tournament Schedule information and registration to TM for 2018, actual registration for RDGA tournaments will not begin until FEBRUARY 15. UNTIL THEN, HOWEVER, any RDGA member with a USGA Handicap Index through an RDGA Member Club (including the RDGA eClub) who would like to play in an RDGA event in 2018 may sign up for our new TM-based player profile, FREE OF CHARGE.
By completing your RDGA TM profile now, it will be easier to sign up for RDGA events when tournament registration officially opens on February 15.

IT'S EASY - AND IT'S FREE!
