It's the beginning of summer and snow is no where to be found.  Try competing like a golf pro to stay in shape to hit the slopes early.  The Nature Valley Amateur (NVA) is an amateur golf event developed to provide participants with an authentic PGA TOUR playing experience.

Have you ever been in front of your television watching a golf game thinking to yourself “I can play as good as that guy/girl?” Now you have the opportunity to show off your skills and potentially play in a championship game. 

In 2011, the event will consist of eighteen (18) Qualifying Tournaments, held at courses within the TPC Network and other renowned courses throughout the country, with approximately 1,300 participants. Based on performance, 90 players across five flights qualify to participate in a Championship Weekend at TPC Sawgrass on October 7th and 8th.
