Member Notes: Thank you for a great 2015 season!
The 2015 season ended on September 21st with the final tournament at Knollwood CC in Granger, Indiana. It was a perfect late summer day for golf with temperatures in the low 70’s, plenty of sunshine and a golf course in great shape.
As always, the final tournament was a popular event that included lunch, dinner, extra awards and door prizes. Individual trophies were presented to Bob McFadden and Ed O’Conor as the MSGA Championship winning team for 2015. Ed O’Conor also won the season long Brady Cup award presented to the player who accumulates the most points earned thru tournament participation, awards and recruitment of new members.
At the Annual Meeting of the membership, Abe Ismail was elected to the Board of Directors for a two-year term after his appointment to the Board during 2015.
The Board of Directors has completed the 2016 tournament schedule, which is listed below. We are excited about the excellent courses on the schedule and look forward to a great season in 2016. The schedule includes nine individual medal events and the MSGA Team Championship tournament.
The Board also wants to thank all the players who participated in this year’s tournaments and made 2015 another very successful year. The MSGA ended the year with 179 members, down 10 players from the end of 2014 and 2013. Tournament participation was down from an average of 103 players per event in 2014 to 94 for 2015. In total, members played 953 rounds in the 2015 tournaments. Nine players played in all eleven events.
We look forward to another great year in 2016!!

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)
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. C. on May 18th and closes at Morris Park C. C. on September 19th.
In between, there are guest days at Mystic Hills G. C. in Culver, IN and Klinger Lake C. C in Sturgis, MI and the MSGA Championship at Swan Lake Golf Resort in Plymouth IN.
There is one course that the MSGA has not played in the past. That tournament will be played at Rock Hollow G. C. in Peru, IN on September 7th.
The Board of Directors is looking forward to another great year in 2016.
