Clarification on number of teams counting for All State Points
We have received several questions about procedures for mulitple teams competing in the same tournament for a school, or individuals and a team competing in the same tournament. This memo was posted in July to the All State page to clarify the committee position on this.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE NEW EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR ALL STATE REPORTS!!!
Welcome to the KGCA!
In order to keep moving forward and providing the best direction for Kentucky High School Golf Coaches and the athletes that we represent, there have been several changes in what we do and how we go forward as a group.
The KGCA proposes to accomplish this by:
- Link to KGA Meetings and Information on new changes to USGA Rules of Golf available at KGA Rules Clinics
- In order to have your school tournament listed on the web site you must be a member for 2019 or pay Tournament Posting fee.
- Membership Applications and Tournament Invoices are on the site for 2019. CLICK HERE > >
- All State requirements have changed, please review.
- Stay Tuned For More Updates To Come……

2018-2019 Member Coaches
As a reminder, host coaches must either be a member of the KGCA OR pay $30 per event for their event to be included in All State Points calculations. If your team is playing in an event later this season, please make sure the host team has taken care of this responsibility so your players won't miss out on the opportunity to earn All State Points. Any event not meeting this requirement will be taken down until the requirement is met starting on August 18. Join today to enjoy all the benefits outline on the link above.
Player Participation Leads to Golf Team Funding
Did you know that each time a player from your school completes an event consisting of at least 18-Hole on the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour, $5 of their entry is placed in a fund that can be claimed by Coaches or Athletic Directors between July 15 and August 15? Don't miss out on your chance to claim funds that are available for your teams. Visit the link to Golf House Kentucky for more information or view the High School Golf Team Donation Request Form. Encourage your players to compete on courses you expect to play in the Fall and watch these players improve over the summer!
