Palo Verde Men's Golf Association - Palo Verde Men's Golf Association has thrived for the past twenty-three years by cultivating a strong management team and by catering to the needs of its members. The PVMGA is an extremely active golf association in the Sun Lakes Community with more than 300 members. It fosters community activities in the form of the South East Valley Home-and-Homes, Intra-Club, and summer tournaments with Sunbird, Sun Lakes, Cottonwood and Fountain-of-the Sun Country Clubs. Its annual Member Guest Tournament is one of the best in the community. These events are strongly supported by our membership and are frequently oversubscribed; thus early sign-up is recommended.

The play day for our members is each Saturday, with a shotgun start in both the AM and PM. Our annual fee for membership in the association is currently $55.00 per year, $30.00 of which is paid to the Arizona Golf Association for maintaining our handicap system. In addition, a fee is collected each Saturday to cover prizes and a monthly luncheon. New members are always welcome and are invited to join us for the camaraderie and friendly atmosphere that is part of the PVMGA family.
