2023 Tournament Request Form

2023 Tournament Request Form

**All event dates are subject to change if needed by the Iowa PGA and Host Facility**

Please review the schedule below and use the form at the bottom of this page to request any tournament(s) that you would like to host. Please understand because of scheduling constraints, there are some events that must be scheduled well in advance of when this form is sent out. Starting times other than double shotguns are coordinated with the host professional.


Extra Charges - Facility Fees
  • A facility fee of $20 will be added to each entry fee and should be used to cover golf car and range costs for each participant. Facilities will have the option of providing a menu that tournament participants may order from on the day of the event but this is not mandatory.
  • Tournaments such as the Iowa Cup Matches, Iowa PGA Foundation Pro-Am, Iowa PGA Professional Championship, Iowa Senior PGA Professional Championship, Iowa Assistant PGA Professional Championship, 36-Hole Classic, and Pro-Junior will have increased extra charges affiliated with them because of the food requirements. All other events will receive the $20 per player facility fee, including all Pro-Ams.
  • It will be necessary to inform the competitors through the BlueGolf Tournament Information Page whether or not there will be an optional menu at the tournament site. When filling out the tournament request form below, please be sure to indicate your menu plan so that we can notify the participants. Again, it is not mandatory to provide an optional menu and food service will have no influence on site selection.
GUIDELINES FOR HOSTING AN IOWA PGA SECTION EVENT

All tournament hosts are required to complete the following duties in regards to each tournament unless otherwise notified by the Iowa PGA Tournament Manager.

Host PGA Professional is Responsible For:
  1. Properly mark the entire golf course. This includes using red paint to define all penalty areas. It is also recommended that you use red stakes to identify all penalty areas. Ground Under Repair must be encircled with white paint. All paint must be freshly marked so that the lines on the ground are easy to see.
  2. Use fair hole locations that reflect the purpose of the event. Our recommendation/demand is that the Host Professional sets the pins with the host facility superintendent. This will ensure that the pins are indeed fair and reputable for the event you are hosting.
Iowa Section PGA Responsible For:
  1. Pairings
  2. Cart Signs (e-mailed to host in PDF format)
  3. Scorecards
  4. Local Rules Sheet & Conditions of the Competition
  5. Scoring Event (includes electronic leader-board)
  6. Post-tournament reports
  7. Rules of Golf
  8. Collecting Skins
2023 Iowa PGA Tentative Tournament Schedule
**Iowa PGA Senior Match Play will be conducted as a season-long event once again in 2023.

** Specific event dates may be moved based off a facility request to move that event's date to fit their facility schedule or by the Sponsor's request.  We have some flexibility but need to determine a starting point while working around the Iowa PGA and Sponsor Commitments.

**Please request as many as you feel comfortable and we will do our best to work within the confines of the schedule.
