Augusta golf association
A non-profit organization, promoting junior golf in Augusta, Georgia.
Steeped in the rich golf tradition that is found in Augusta, GA, home of the Masters, the 3M Augusta Invitational, now in it's 39th year, has grown steadily since its beginning in 1979. Formerly named the Augusta College Invitational, the tournament took a new look in 1992 with the addition of a corporate sponsor, Cleveland Golf, and was then named the Cleveland Golf Classic. A women's event was added in 2005. Through the generous support of 3M for the past 4 years, the now named 3M Augusta Invitational continues to grow through the help of major sponsors such as Mercedes Benz of Augusta, Pro Links Sports, TaxSlayer, Valspar, and Nature Valley to name a few.
