Playing in golf tournaments are fun, especially when you are competing with friends and raising money
for a great cause. Most people that play in charity events get invitations from friends and family
associated with the charity, but for those of us just looking to compete and give back, I listed some
resources to find charity golf tournaments in your area.
1. Check your local PGA Section or state golf association website – Every state has a PGA Section and local state golf association which host State Championships, govern the rules and manage golf operations in their
respective state. In my home state of Massachusetts, The New England PGA and Mass Golf are the local governing bodies. The New England PGA has a Chapter of PGA Reach which is a golf foundation that hosts tournaments and raises money for veteran, junior, and diverse golf causes in New England. Mass Golf, like many state golf associations, has a list of charity golf tournaments on their website. Charity Golf Tournaments in Massachusetts
2. Eventbrite – Although many of us use Eventbrite for buying tickets to bar crawls, running events
or otherwise, Eventbrite is a popular ticket registration website where people can list their
charity golf events for people to sign-up. If you are looking to find charity golf tournaments, I’ve found that there are many golf local tournaments listed on this website. Check out golf on eventbrite

3. GoFindGolf.com - This website makes organizing tournament dates so much easier. They post tournaments across the nation from local amateur events, USGA Championships and even the Nextgengolf City Tour. Search by course, date, location, and tournament type. Anyone can post golf tournament information to GoFindGolf.com. It's completely free and takes seconds. Follow your favorite courses and get email notifications when new tournaments are added.
4. Golf course websites – Many golf courses list tournaments on their websites. If you like playing
at a specific course locally, checking the tournament calendar on a local course website or on
the event board at the club can be helpful to find upcoming charity golf tournaments. Check with your local PGA or LPGA Professional as they will know where to find charity tournaments which the club is hosting or may know some other good causes and events happening in the area.
Playing in charity golf tournaments is a lot of fun and often times these tournaments are the big
fundraising events for many charities. Hopefully you can give back this year and play in a few charity golf
