USRGA websiteThe U.S. Recreational Golf Association (USRGA), founded in May of 2014 by industry veterans, John B. Hoeflich and David L. Felker, announce the launch of a new version of its website

The new site displays a modern intuitive feel and updated content including membership information, golf etiquette, the USRGA Rules of Golf, blogs, equipment reviews, deals and promotions for members.

“Golfers are some of the most active participants in seeking information about their sport on the worldwide web,” said USRGA founder David Felker. “Having a vibrant interactive website is a key to spreading the USRGA message to recreational and serious golfers worldwide. Our new website provides a forum for golfers to access simplified rules, special deals only available to our members, and information on equipment and ways to make the game more fun.”

“There are 40 million golfers worldwide. A small percentage of those players have a handicap and play by the USGA and R&A Rules of Golf and most never play in high level competitions,” states John B. Hoeflich, Executive Director. “For too long these golfers have lacked representation when it comes to determining the etiquette and rules for play and equipment that more accurately reflect the way they play the game. The USRGA is now that voice.”

The USRGA appreciates any and all support from the golf community and wants to work in partnership with all organizations and companies to help grow the game of golf. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the USRGA should go to for more details or to enrol directly. Those wanting to become a Friend or Sponsor of the USRGA are asked to contact to request more information.
