Thanks to The Desert Mashie Golf Club – formed by a group of Phoenix-area golf enthusiasts in 1946 – the Desert Mashie Spring Championship emerged in 1981 at Encanto Golf Course, before becoming a JGAA-sanctioned event in 1992.

“The Desert Mashie has been giving our juniors a place to compete and have fun for 41 years,” said Scott McNevin, Executive Director of the JGAA.  “It’s an honor for us to carry on the tradition of this tournament started by a group of people with a common passion for golf and the desire to see more kids grow up with the game.”
