As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to affect nearly all aspects of life, the list of amateur golf tournaments that have been cancelled, postponed or rescheduled continues to grow.

AmateurGolf.com is in constant communication with tournament directors and state golf associations across the country to bring you the latest announcements and changes to upcoming events. This is a fluid situation and information is flowing in fast, and we will do our best to keep you informed.

Some tournaments are still being played but, unfortunately but understandably, most are being affected.
