What We Do

The Friends of Pusch Ridge Golf (FOPRG) is a volunteer 501(c)(3) organization located in Oro Valley, Arizona. Our primary mission is to increase play and help preserve the Pusch Ridge Course to make it a viable asset for the Town of Oro Valley.


FOPRG’s Board and Advisors are comprised of business, marketing, and advertising people with over 70 years of experience and expertise. These dedicated individuals contribute countless hours every week to help ensure the success of the Pusch Ridge Golf course.


We work tirelessly and use your donations to provide both ‘visible’ and ‘behind-the-scenes’ activities.


Visible activities


Activities in this category are ones in which we interact face-to-face with the public to promote the course. You may see us in person as we host our golf tournaments, hand out flyers, maintain the course practice nets, or repair divots.


Some examples of our visible activities include:

  • Hosting two tournaments per season 

  • Hosting community events

  • Managing and conducting four weekly golf leagues

  • Improvements to the course

  • Restocking hotel guest brochures and flyers

  • El Con Golf Grounds Committee representation

  • Setting up special pricing for local restaurants to offer all-day happy hour pricing

  • Supporting local youth golf events

Behind-the-scenes activities
