ABOUT UCF GOLF ASSOCIATION

History

 

On May 29, 1976, a group of University of Central Florida employees chartered a non-profit association, thus becoming the original founders of the University of Central Florida Golf Association (UCFGA). The purpose of the association was to promote camaraderie between the community and the University of Central Florida by providing golf outings in Central Florida.
Our association does so by organizing these outingsĀ each month of the year on the best golf course venues throughout Central Florida. Our mission is to continue the vision of Art and Carrie Lehmann, both of whom have contributed so much since the inception of the UCFGA. Our members, past and present, have succeeded and will continue to carry out that mission.
In appreciation for the Lehmann’s 38 years of dedicated service, members honored them by adding Art and Carrie’sPicture of Art and Carrie Lehmann name to UCFGA’s annual “Tournament of Champions”, making the November event known as the “Art & Carrie Lehmann, Tournament of Champions”.

Monthly Golf Outings

UCF Monthly tournaments are played by handicap in A, B, C, D flights. Play is conducted under current USGA Rules, except where course rules and format rules apply.
The entry fee for each outing averages to about $45.00. This fee includes green fees, golf cart, prize money, hole in one, mulligan and a donation to the UCF Foundation.The Tournament of Champions will also include lunch buffet and raffle items, but will also carry a larger entry fee to offset the cost of the meal and additional awards.
The tournaments include mixed formats from individual low net, low gross play, best ball and more. Every golfer is placed into a flight based on their handicap to provide that person with the best chance to win. Additionally, we have prizes for the closest to the pin on all par 3’s, which is included in the cost, and our skins competition for an additional small fee.
Held in November, all participants who have won in any flight at one of the monthly tournaments qualify him or her to compete in our Art & Carrie Lehmann, Tournament of Champions. A lunch/dinner style buffet will follow our golf outing with the announcement of our tournament winners as well as our annual winners.

For those who did not qualify during the year may join the Tournament of Champions and play on a special flight with prizes included.
