Format 36-hole Stroke Play Championship.

This event is a two-day 36-hole stroke play competition. After Round 1, the field will be cut to the low 40 scores plus ties and anyone within five strokes of the low score. Players who make the cut will then play 18 holes on Thursday, May 9. The MGA Senior Amateur Champion will be the lowest score over 36 holes. If necessary to determine the champion, there will be a sudden death playoff which will begin immediately at the conclusion of regulation play. All players should keep informed as to the time and status of any playoff.

All age class competitions and prizes (Legends, Masters, Super Senior, Senior Division) will be conducted over 36-holes of stroke play. If there are no players in an age class who make the cut, the lowest 18-hole score will determine the Champion. Ties will be broken based on second round scores, if applicable. Otherwise, ties will be broken based on date of birth (i.e. older player wins).
Eligibility The competition is open to male amateur members of MGA Member Clubs who will have reached their fifty-fifth birthday by May 8, 2024.
