2023 SDGA Season Review and Awards



2023 Season Recap Todd Dischinger, SDGA President What a great summer for golf! I’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our volunteers who donated their time and effort to the SDGA. I'd also like to sincerely thank all of the clubs that hosted SDGA events/championships this year- your support means so much to all of the players.

As many of you know, I am moving out of the area to spend more quality time with my five granddaughters. It has been my distinct honor and privilege to serve as SDGA President for the past seven years. Giving back to an association that has meant so much to my adult life, has been a very rewarding experience. I wish nothing but the best moving forward for this great association. SDGA Awards: Listed below are the Player of the Year award winners. Related: SDGA Points Lists / POY Pictures
