GUEST DAY!!

Klinger Lake Country Club
June 29, 2016 (Wednesday) – GUEST DAY

Note:  Normal starting time – (12:00pm CDT – 1:00pm EDT)

The fourth MSGA tournament of the year will be on Wednesday, June 29th at Klinger Lake C. C. in Sturgis, MI.  This is the second and final Guest Day for 2016.  Invite your friends to join you in playing a challenging golf course.  This is a great way to introduce them to the MSGA’s tournament format.

The cut-off for entries is June 22nd.

The format is an Individual Medal play event.  Individual prizes and skins within flights will be awarded.  You may sign up as a foursome or as an individual and we will place you with others to form foursomes.  It’s a great way to meet others who also enjoy the game of golf on a very nice golf course.  Guests with handicaps will participate with members in the normal prize competitions.  Guests without handicaps will participate in a separate flight.  Awards will be distributed at the following event.  Check the Tournaments page for details and directions.  Your entry fee includes lunch and golf.

If you have any questions, call Bill Murray at 219-393-8648.

This is the third time the MSGA has played at Klinger Lake and we look forward to a fine day of golf on an excellent golf course. Our last tournament at Klinger was in 2014 when 98 players participated in non-guest day, so get your entries in early.

For the 2016 season, the MSGA Board is continuing the additional flight for higher handicap players who play from the Forward Tees rather than from the Regular Tees.  To accomplish this, the number of flights for each tournament increased from four to five.  The fifth flight (Flight E) is for the players with handicaps plus age totaling 95.  Only Low Net prizes are awarded for Flight E in addition to normal skins awards (no Low Gross awards).  The same par three tees are used by all flights, so Flight E players participate in the Closest-to-the-Pin contest.

Using a Flight E has sped up play and made the golfing experience more enjoyable for all players.  Players are encouraged to continue to play with their regular groups even though some players may be playing from the Forward Tees.

The fifth event on the schedule is Innsbrook C. C. in Merrillville, IN on Monday July 11th.  Cut-off for entries is July 5th.  2016 is the sixth time the MSGA has played Innsbrook.

Innsbrook is a unique and interesting layout with six par 3’s, six par 4’s and six par 5’s.  It is one of the MSGA’s popular venues, so get your entries in early as we expect a very good field.  The average number of players for the last two tournaments at Innsbrook is 98.  Members should also review the complete schedule to make sure they get entries in early for their favorite courses.

This year’s MSGA Championship will again be held at Swan Lake Resort on August 22nd & 23rd.  It’s never too early to find a partner and get your entry in.  See the MSGA Championship page for details.

Visitors and Guests:

Welcome to the website of the Michiana Seniors Golf Association (MSGA).  The organization is made up of amateur senior players (age 50+) who love and enjoy the game of golf and a little competition and fellowship on some great golf courses.  The Michiana area includes Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan. 

If you are a senior amateur player who enjoys playing golf on some of Michiana’s premium golf courses, the MSGA is the organization for you.

All tournaments are flighted by handicap so players are playing against similarly skilled players.  An additional flight is available, if players choose, for players whose age plus handicap equals 95.  The flight plays from the forward tees.  Click on the tabs above to learn more about the MSGA. 

If you have any questions or need more information about the MSGA, please contact Bruce Fisher (219-363-7466) or any of the Board of Directors.

Walt Ailes, President (219-462-0663)

2016 Information:

The 2016 season is the 18th year for the MSGA and includes ten tournaments played from May thru September.  Of the 2016 tournaments, six will be played at private country clubs and four at public golf courses throughout the Michiana area.  The season opens at Maplecrest C.
