The TGA is excited to announce that Westwood Golf Club will be hosting the 2020 South Mid-Amateur on March 27 – 29. Westwood GC has been a huge supporter of the TGA through the years hosting multiple qualifiers and Men’s competitions.

Registration for the 54-hole individual stroke play event will open on Tuesday, February 4 at 9:00 a.m. and close on Friday, March 20 at 5:00 p.m.
