How It All Works

COST and FEES
Membership is $20 and is paid at the start of each Dirty Valley season.

A $5 entry fee for each tournament is required to play.
These fees are used for medals, and cash prize challenges such as
longest drive and closest to the pin, or the new Flag Hunter 33.

You must be sponsored by a current member in order to join the DVGC.

You must be an approved (paid) member of the Dirty Valley Golf Club to participate.

THE DIRTY VALLEY GOLF TOUR
Once you are an approved member you will be invited to play on the Dirty Valley Golf Club Tour.  Like the PGA Tour, our DVGC Tour has pre-determined tournament dates for the entire year.  These tournaments occur every two weeks on average with a long break in August.

You are not required to play in every single tournament.  You can play in all, some, or simply just the tournaments you like during the Tour.

Every two weeks members are invited to play for the Dirty Valley Golf Club Cup (DVGC).  If members decide to accept the invitation, they must
notify the DVGC on the Saturday prior to the tournament of their intention to play.  They will then be added to the booking reservations that we do on that same Saturday.

YOU MUST BE CONFIRMED TO PARTICIPATE  –  NO EXCEPTIONS 
The tee times for our Tournament of Champions Tour are all booked at once and may have up to three foursomes.   If you miss the deadline, you are out until the next invitational tournament.

A minimum of three (3) members is required for a tournament.  If a tournament cannot attract three members.  That tournament will be cancelled and no points will be awarded for that week.

The current holder of the cup then retains possession for another two weeks.

The winner, based on the USGA handicap system, takes home our DVGC Champions Cup.  The winner retains possession of “the Cup” until the next tournament at which time the Cup must be made available.  Whether the winner is playing in the next invitational tournament or not. 

Failure to make the Cup available will be a 6 point penalty from the annual points totals of that player. Multiple violations may result in membership termination.

Points are totaled throughout the year based on the results of your order of finish in each tournament you decide to play in.  The member with the most points combined has their name engraved on the DVGC Champions Cup for that year.

The Dirty Valley Golf Club Scoring System or (How You Win Tournaments)
