The Amateur Golf Society, founded by two Philadelphia sports enthusiasts, makes competing in tournaments easier for busy golfers, writes Laura Brzyski for Philadelphia Magazine

Golf has surged in popularity since the pandemic, but the main issue with the sport is that unless you are retired or have lots of free time, it can be tough to find time to pencil in tee times in a packed schedule. 

The Amateur Golf Society is trying to deal with this by making tournament play more convenient for more players. Through its tour program implemented in partnership with the Golf Association of Philadelphia, it makes it possible for golfers to play on their own time on some of the best local courses. 

This year’s AGS tour will run through October. It features more than 60 golf outings at Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware courses, including Downingtown Country Club

Instead of single-day or two-day events, the society hosts week-long competitions. Members can take part at their convenience and still get real-time scoring and leaderboard standings. 

To participate, you pay an annual fee that ranges from $65 to $100 and green fees for the courses you choose to play.
