It is the mission of the Board of Governors to provide every member with the greatest possible return on his investment in the association. In carrying out its mission, the Board's goals will be:

To plan, schedule and monitor a number of member-only golf tournaments throughout the year. A variety of formats and a weekly RAZZ game will provide an opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to be in the money in any given tournament.

To provide oversight on members' handicaps, and take steps to ensure that the playing field is as level as possible. Nevertheless, the golf handicap system has always relied on the integrity of the individual golfer, and it is each member's responsibility to record his individual scores accurately and promptly.

To promote the true spirit of the game of golf by encouraging proper etiquette and strict enforcement of the rules of the game as defined by the USGA and the AGA.

To provide each member with a USGA handicap through the Arizona Golf Association.

To monitor the condition of the golf course, and recommend changes or improvements to the course superintendent and head professional. And to fund improvements subject to budgetary constraints and city regulations.
