    2018 SMA Golf Event

    Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - Santa Fe, NM

         at




    Join us for a day of healthy (but always just for fun) competition at the only golf event for stairbuilders in North America!


    Professionals (of the Stair Industry not of Golf) will engage in what has become the most prestigious tournament of golfing stairbuilders in North America.  Unlike what others may do on the course, SMA golf requires little expertise other than those innate abilities to drive with a newel post and putt with a baluster. 


    Everyone is Guaranteed Fun and welcomed to join in regardless of player level.  Our scramble format is the equalizer.  We will start with breakfast and a bucket of balls,  the chase of the ball, many excuses and perhaps some exaggeration.


    The all-inclusive cost for this year’s event is just $170 per player. The course has clubs that can be rented at an additional cost of just $55 each set.  Requests to be paired with other players will be accommodated as possible.


    Wednesday, April 25 – We will meet for breakfast at 8:00 am at the La Fonda on the Plaza, then we'll be transported to the course and be back to the hotel in time to enjoy the Welcome Reception.




    All participants must also register for the SMA Annual Conference or be an attendee's guest.
