Member Notes:

Island Hills Golf Club July 8, 2015 (Wednesday) GUEST DAY

Note: Normal starting time (12:00pm CDT 1:00pm EDT)

The fifth MSGA tournament of 2015 will be on Wednesday, July 8th at Island Hills G. C. in Centreville, MI.  The Island Hills tournament will be the last Guest Day event in 2015, so get you entries in early.  The field will be limited to the first 120 players entered.

For players who join as members on the guest day or later, the Board of Directors will reduce the normal 2015 dues by half to $30.  The normal application fee of $25 remains in effect.

The cut-off for entries is July 1st. 

The format is an Individual Medal play event.  The normal individual prizes and skins within flights will be awarded.  You may 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 premier golf course.  Guests with handicaps will participate with members in the normal prize competitions.  Guests without handicaps will participate in a Callaway flight.  Awards will be distributed at the following tournament.  Check the Tournaments page for details and directions.  Your entry fee includes lunch and golf, but not dinner.

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

This is the second time the MSGA has played at Island Hills and we look forward to a fine day of golf on a very beautiful golf course.  Our last tournament at Island Hills was in May 2012 with 98 players.

For the 2015 season, the MSGA Board is continuing an additional flight for higher handicap players who play from the Forward Tees rather than from the Regular Tees.  To accomplish this, we increased the number of flights for each tournament from four to five.  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 above.

The sixth event on the schedule is at Briar Ridge C. C. on Monday July 20th.  Cut-off for entries is July 13th with entries limited to the first 120 received.  This is the first time the MSGA has played Briar Ridge and we expect a large turnout on this premium golf course.

Members should also review the balance of the 2015 schedule to make sure they get entries in early for their favorite courses.

This year’s MSGA Championship will again be held at Swan Lake Resort on August 17th & 18th.  It’s never too early to find a partner and get your entry in.  If you are interested in playing, but do not have a partner, call Bill Murray at 219-393-8648.  See the MSGA Championship page for all the details.

Following event: Briar Ridge C. C. Monday, July 20th Cutoff July 13th.

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.
