Saturday Golf League is a 20 year old Phoenix Area golf association. The league schedules Saturday golf tournaments from September through May at different golf courses every week. Most of the courses scheduled are in or around the Phoenix Metro area. Occasionally tournaments are scheduled in Sedona, Prescott, Wickenburg, Tucson, and other surrounding Arizona locations. Most courses scheduled are regulation par 70, 71 or 72 courses.

USGA rules govern play, unless otherwise noted by the course or the league. The format of play is usually low net based upon a participant's handicap. The handicap is determined and kept by the Saturday Golf League. Many players have USGA handicaps, but the league handicap is used to determine one's net score. New members are required to play 3 qualifying rounds using the Callaway handicap system to establish a SGL handicap index. Once the SGL handicap index for the player is established, the player will be placed in one of four flights and compete against other players of similar abilities for prize awards. Every player must have a 36 handicap or better.

The cost to play a particular course is negotiated by the league and posted on the league schedule. Courses are posted for a 3 month period. Players know well in advance the name, location and cost to play a particular course. If a walking option is available, it also is indicated (see current tournament schedule). The posted cost of play includes green fee, cart, range balls, $5 flight net game and $2 administration fee. Optional events are also available at extra costs to members and qualifiers, i.e. low putts, closest to the pin, skins, and so forth.

Membership requirements are minimal. You must already know how to play golf at a reasonable skill level. This means that players should have a minimum of a 36 playable handicap. If you are uncertain about your skills, call the league for guidance.

The annual membership cost currently is only $40.00. But the benefits of membership in the Saturday Golf League are numerous.
