Member Notes:

Blackthorn G. C. – September 8, 2014 (Monday)

The eleventh MSGA tournament of the year will be on Monday, September 8th at Blackthorn G. C. in South Bend, IN.  We expect a big turnout, so get your entries in soon.  If you want to play Blackthorn, but cannot get your mailed entry to Michelle by the September 2nd cut-off date, call her at 219-393-8648.

Cut-off for Blackthorn entries is September 2nd

The format is an Individual Medal play event.  The normal individual prizes and skin games within flights will be awarded.  You can 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 popular golf course.  Awards will be distributed at the final event at Morris Park C. C.  Check the Tournaments page for details and directions.  Your entry fee includes lunch and golf, but no dinner.

If you have any questions, call Michelle at 219-393-8648

The MSGA has played the Blackthorn course four times before and found the course to be an excellent challenge for the players.  Our last visit was in 2010 when 104 players were entered.  With the great attendance throughout this year, we would expect to exceed this total.

With all the great weather for golf courses this spring and summer, we expect the course to be in excellent shape.

The twelfth and FINAL event on the 2014 schedule is at Morris Park C. C. on Monday September 22nd. Morris Park is always a very popular venue and with this being the final event, we expect a large turnout.  The field will be limited to our normal maximum of 128 players, so getting your entries mailed early would be an excellent plan.  Your entry fee includes lunch, golf and dinner and the awards presentation after dinner.

Awards for Morris Park and the season-long awards for the Brady Cup will be presented in addition to door prizes and raffles for all players.  Trophies for the Brady Cup winner and the 2014 MSGA Championship winners will also be presented.  The Morris Park staff always provides a great dinner.

FINAL event: Morris Park on Monday, September 22nd – Cut-off is September 15th.

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.  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 or any of the Board of Directors.

2014 Information:

The 2014 season is the 16th year for the MSGA and includes twelve (12) tournaments played from May thru September.  Of the 2014 tournaments, seven will be played at private country clubs and five at public golf courses throughout the Michiana area.  We will open the schedule at Maplecrest C. C. on May 14th and close the season at Morris Park C. C. on September 22nd. 

In between, we have guest days at Rozella Ford G. C. and Innsbrook C. C and the MSGA Championship at Swan Lake Golf Resort in Plymouth IN. 

We have one course new to the MSGA in 2014.  That tournament will be played at Orchard Hills C. C. in Buchanan, MI on June 9th.

With two additional tournaments this year and the addition of a flight to play from the forward tees, we believe we have increased the opportunities for our members to enjoy the game of golf.

You can check out the complete schedule by clicking on the Tournaments tab above. 

The Board of Directors is looking forward to another great year in 2014.
