Competitions

Golf Inc. is pleased to recognize the gold standard in renovations, development, operations and clubhouses through our various competitions.

For each competition, we select well-known judges who represent the various constituencies, and who are often past winners themselves.

We recognize a First place, Second place, third place and two honorable mentions in each category, when there are enough quality entrants. Honorees are featured in a magazine issue and invited to attend the Golf Inc. Summit to receive a plaque and be recognized.

All competitions are free to enter
