Swan Lake Golf Resort Championship Plymouth IN August 21/22, 2017 (Mon/Tue)

Note: Registration and continental breakfast (8:00am CDT 9:00am EDT) first match each day (9:00am CDT 10:00am EDT)

The 8th MSGA tournament of the year will be on Monday and Tuesday, August 21st and 22nd at Swan Lake Resort G. C. in Plymouth, IN.  This event is the MSGA’s Championship tournament for 2017.  This year, the Championship will be the same format as in the past and played on the Silver Course at Swan Lake, the same course as previous years.  With the event at Swan Lake again this year, we expect a full field, so get your entries in soon. 

If you want to play, but do not have a partner, Bill Murray will pair you with another to form a team.  If you need a partner, call Bill at 219-393-8648. 

The tournament is a Member/Member or Member/Guest event.  All guests are required to have an official USGA handicap with at least 10 rounds posted as of the August 1st handicap update.

The cut-off date for entries is August 11th.

This year’s tournament is the 15th annual John Pavlos Memorial Championship, which is named in honor of one of the MSGA’s co-founders.  The format is a Two-man Two-day Best Ball Match Play within flights with flight winners participating in a shoot-out. 

Awards will be presented for the overall Shoot-out Winners and Runners Up and to all teams in the Shoot-out Winner’s flight in addition to all Flight winners and Runners Up.  The Championship winners will also be presented with individual trophies and have their names engraved on the permanent John Pavlos Memorial Championship trophy.  The only regular event award will be the Hole-in-One contest. 

This is the eight time the MSGA has played at Swan Lake and the fifth time for the MSGA Team Championship.  We have always enjoyed our visits and have always been treated very well.  We expect that the course will be in great shape.

If you have any questions or need a parnter, call Bill Murray at 219-393-8648.

Following event: Knollwood C. C. (East) on Wednesday September 6th Cut-off date is August 30th.

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 index 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)
