    SMA 2017 Annual Conference

    Thursday, March 30, 2017 - Tuscaloosa, AL




    Once again, SMA 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 $160 per player. The course has clubs that can be rented at additional cost of just $45.  Requests to be paired with other players will be accommodated as possible.


    Thursday, March 30, 2017 – We will meet for breakfast at 8:00 am in the Hotel Capstone, then we'll be transported to the course and be back to the hotel in time to enjoy the Welcome Reception.


    The all-inclusive cost includes,  breakfast, green fees, cart, lunch, prizes and transportation.


    Complete Conference Overview

    All participants must also register for the 
    SMA Annual Conference or be an attendees guest.
