The Sun Country Golf House (SCGH) is an alliance of the leading golf-related organizations in the general areas of New Mexico and West Texas.  The alliance of these associations makes SCGH the epicenter for golf in our area.  The Sun Country Amateur Golf Association (SCAGA) is the representative for the United States Golf Association and the 13,000+ amateur golfers in region while the Sun Country PGA Section (SCPGA) is the representative body for the Professional Golfers’ Association of America and our Section’s 200+ PGA Professionals.  The two organizations combine staffing and resources in the form of Sun Country Golf House.  This allows the two groups to cast a wider net of influence while furthering shared goals together.  Educating the public on the organizations, providing a great tournament schedule for PGA Professionals and amateurs, executing a junior tour, making New Mexico and West Texas a national golfing destination, and generally improving and promoting the game of golf are the focuses of this collaboration.  Additionally, the PGA Section and Amateur Association share the Sun Country Golf Foundation, which provides education and financial support for programs in the areas of juniors, military, and diversity / inclusion.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
