Member Notes:

Pottawattomie Country Club – August 31, 2015 (Monday)
Note:  Normal starting time – (12:00pm CDT – 1:00pm EDT)

The ninth MSGA tournament of 2015 will be on Monday, August 31st at Pottawattomie C. C. in Michigan City, IN.  We expect an excellent turnout on this premium golf course, so get your entries in early.  The field will be limited to the first 120 players entered.

The cut-off for entries is August 24th. 

The format is an Individual Medal play event.  The normal individual prizes and skins within flights will be awarded.  Players may sign up as a foursome or as individuals and placed with players to form foursomes.  It’s a great way to meet others who also enjoy the game of golf on a premier golf course.  Awards will be distributed at the following tournament.  Check the Tournaments page for details and directions.  Your entry fee includes lunch and golf, but no dinner.

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

This is the third time the MSGA has played Pottawattomie.  The last time was in 2011 when the turnout was 113.  Pottawattomie is a highly rated private course and has proven to be a tough challenge for MSGA players in the past. 

For the 2015 season, the MSGA Board has continued using an additional flight for higher handicap players who play from the Forward Tees rather than from the Regular Tees.  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).

Having 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.  For more details, click on the Tournaments page.

The tenth event on the schedule is at Bend Oak G. C. in Elkhart, IN on Wednesday, September 9th.  Cutoff for entries is September 2nd.

The eleventh and final tournament of the year will be at Knollwood C. C. in Granger, IN on Monday September 21st.  Members should review the remaining schedule to make sure they get entries in early for these tournaments.  The final tournament always has a big turnout.

Following event:    Pottawattomie tournament on Monday, August 31st in Michigan City, IN.  Cutoff for entries is August 24th.

2015 Information:

The 2015 season is the 17th year for the MSGA and includes eleven (11) tournaments played from May thru September.  Of the 2015 tournaments, six will be played at private country clubs and five at public golf courses throughout the Michiana area.  We will open the schedule at Whitaker Woods G. C. on May 11th and close the season at Knollwood C. C. on September 21st. 

In between, we have guest days at Meadow Valley G. C. in Middlebury, IN and Island Hills G. C in Centreville, MI and the MSGA Championship at Swan Lake Golf Resort in Plymouth IN. 

We have one course new to the MSGA in 2015.  That tournament will be played at Briar Ridge C. C. in Schereville, IN on July 20th.

After testing during the 2014, we will continue to have a fifth flight that will play from the front tees in all individual tournaments.  Players whose age plus handicap equals 95 may choose to play in the fifth flight.

The Board of Directors is looking forward to another great year in 2015.
