Western New York Assistants Association

Over the last several years the Western New York Assistants Association has struggled with its participation. As a result tournament entries have taken a decline. As a member of the PGA of America all professionals and apprentices are required to remain in good standing in order to participate in section events. Those not in good standing are on suspension and are unable to participate. I encourage all to support each other and help turn things around for the future.

Membership Registration and Event Entry Fees

A registration fee of $60.00 is required for all participants.
Sign In with Players Club ID and Password and Click the "General Seminars Tab". Then Click "Register" for the Assistants Association which will allow you to register for Assistant Association Tournaments. This money covers administrative expenses, increased select event purses and 2014 Player of the Year bonuses.

Event entry fees are $60.00. Optional $10.00 skins game to be paid onsite in cash, please bring proper change. Registration must be made online with your BlueGolf username and password. All participants are required to register prior to tee-off at the site golf shop.

Cart fees will be determined by each host site.

Policies/Event Registration

All checks should be made out to WNYPGA or sign up online with a Credit Card.

Participants failing to pay prior to an event will forfeit their winnings.

All ties will split payout and points. There will be no playoffs.


The PGA Code of Ethics will be enforced under the guidelines written in Article VII, Part D of the tournament regulation booklet.

Penalties for late arrival will be consistent with USGA policy: “Two strokes if within five minutes of the starting time and disqualification if after five minutes of starting time.”

Western NY vs. Central NY
Western New York will be hosting the Assistant Ryder Cup Match between Western New York and Central New York PGA Sections. Participants will be selected from the 2014 points list.

Jeff Urzetta from Oak Hill Country Club and Marc Rosa from Country Club of Buffalo will be the Vice-Chairmen of the Assistants Association for 2014. They will run events in which I am unable to be present.

Thank you in advance for interest and participation. We have excellent host sites this season; please remember to write a “Thank You” to the host professional, Board of Directors and Superintendent. We are privileged to have such an excellent opportunity and it should not go unnoticed. I’d like to thank all of the Head Professionals who were kind enough to allow us to host an event at their respective clubs.
