Senior Men Division Announcement

Aug 23, 2020

The MSGA Tournament Committee is announcing a change after reviewing four mid-week Play Days in 2020 (June thru August). The change will affect only senior golfers playing the forward tees and will not affect senior golfers playing from the regular tees.

The Tournament Committee is changing from flights-by-handicap to flights-by-age in two Play Days held in September, while keeping the other Play Days flights-by-handicap. The two Play Days are Purpoodock on 9/8 and Brunswick on 9/29-9/30.

The flights-by-age will be determined on the level of participation and ages of the participants playing from the forward tees.

After analyzing the four mid-week Play Days held thus far, the MSGA found the flights will be divided by ages 55-63 and 64 and up. Depending on the level of participation, a third flight could be added changing the ages of all flights played from the forward tees. The goal is to build the flights with an equal number of participants.

A review of alternative flighting of senior players was delayed when five Play Days were cancelled due to COVID-19 in April and May of 2020.

 

Side note:  We added a play day on Tuesday, 9/29, at Brunswick based on demand for the 9/30 date.  Tee times are open from 7:00-11:00. CLICK HERE to register.
