Swan Lake Championship (August 17/18, 2015 (Mon./Tue.)

Note:  Registration and continental breakfast – (8:00am CDT – 9:00am EDT) – first match each day – (9:00am CDT – 10:00am EDT)

The 8th MSGA tournament of the year will be on Monday and Tuesday, August 18 and 19th at Swan Lake Resort G. C. in Plymouth, IN.  This event is the MSGA’s Championship tournament for 2015.  This year, the Championship will be the same format as in the past and played on the Silver Course at Swan Lake, the same course as previous years.  With the event at Swan Lake again this year, we expect a large field, so get your entries in soon. 

If you want to play, but do not have a partner, we will pair you with another to form a team.  If you need a partner, call Bill Murray at 219-393-8648.

Click the MSGA Championship page for details.

The tournament is a Member/Member or Member/Guest event.  All guests are required to have an official USGA handicap with at least 10 rounds posted as of the August 1st handicap update.

The cut-off for Championship entries is August 10th.

This year’s tournament is the 13th annual John Pavlos Memorial Championship, which is named in honor of one of the MSGA’s co-founders.  The format is a Two-man Two-day Best Ball Match Play within flights with flight winners participating in a shoot-out. 

Awards will be presented for the overall Shoot-out Winners and Runners Up and to all teams in the Shoot-out Winner’s flight.  The overall winners will also be presented with individual trophies and have their names engraved on the permanent John Pavlos Memorial Championship trophy.  First and second place winners in each flight will also receive awards.  The only regular event award will be the Hole-in-One contest. 

This is the sixth time the MSGA has played at Swan Lake and the third time for the MSGA Team Championship.  We have always enjoyed our visits and have always been treated very well.  We expect that the course will be in great shape.

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

The 9th event on the 2015 schedule is at Pottawattomie C. C. in Michigan City, IN on Monday, August 31th.  Cut-off for entries is August 24th.  Pottawattomie has hosted MSGA tournaments twice before and has proven to be a great test.
