AAMGA’s 2017 Golf Tournament –
The Second Annual Thomas B. Rogan Cup

The AAMGA’s Invitational Thomas B. Rogan Golf Tournament, will be held Sunday morning, May 21, 2017, on-site of the Annual Meeting conference facility at the iconic Hawk’s Landing Golf Club; considered by many Floridians to be the best resort golf course in the state. Mr Rogan is a long-time member and leader of the Association, having been its president in 1991-1992, and good friend to all AAMGA members. Mr. Rogan will once again be our Master of Ceremonies. Prior to the commencement of the tournament, we will also be honoring all AAMGA service veterans who have, or whose family relatives are currently, serving their country.

The Thomas B. Rogan Cup will be awarded to the winning team at the Opening Breakfast of the Annual Meeting on Monday, May 22nd, with the understanding that it will be returned for the following year’s competition. Each member of the winning team will receive a smaller engraved version of the Rogan Cup.

Thanks to an overwhelming response, the annual tournament is almost sold-out, but slots for teams remain available.

Disney Palm Course AAMGA Tournament

For those who are not playing in the Rogan Cup, we will have a parallel tournament on Disney’s Palm Course on Sunday, May 21. Featuring a modified Scramble Format, the tournament will be played on a course featuring shimmering lakes, tropical sands, palm trees and sloping greens. Operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, Disney's Palm Golf Course is rated 4 stars by Golf Digest and includes 9 holes with water hazards and 59 bunkers—providing plenty of challenges for novices and seasoned pros alike.
During Summer 2013, the course was completely redesigned by Arnold Palmer Course Design. This extensive work included building entirely new green complexes, newly shaped tees and a completely new bunker design that has modernized this historic golf course.
