Next Tournament May 2019!


Member Notes:
THANK YOU FOR A GREAT 2018 SEASON!!

The 2018 season ended on September 17th with the final tournament at Morris Park CC in South Bend.  It was a very warm fall day for golf and was enjoyed by 118 players.

Morris Park CC is an excellent private golf course and was a great choice for our final tournament.   The golf and banquet staffs did a great job for the MSGA.

As always, the final tournament was a popular event that included lunch, dinner, extra awards, door prizes and raffles.  The season long Brady Cup awards for 2018 were also presented.  MSGA 2018 Championship winners, Mark Joseph and Gary Drutis were also recognized.

The 2019 Season will be the twenty-first for the MSGA.  Over the past twenty years, the MSGA has played 181 tournaments on 50 different golf courses throughout the Michiana area.  For the 2018 season, the average entries for the individual events was 102, equal to the 102 for 2017.  Five of the last six years have seen average attendance over 100 entries per tournament.

The current membership stands at 181, up from 171 last year.  Over the years, 768 players have held membership in the MSGA. 

The Board of Directors is working on the 2019 tournament schedule and expects to post the finalized schedule on the website within the next few weeks.  Membership renewal forms with the 2019 schedule will be mailed out in early January for the 2019 season.  We hope that all current members will re-up for 2019.

The Board wants to thank all the members who participated in this year’s tournaments and made 2018 another very successful year for the MSGA.  We look forward to another great year in 2019.

Next Tournament: Opening Day in May 2019!!

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 links to see more information 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)
