MGA/WMGA Mixed Pinehurst Championship History

One of the more intriguing championships on the MGA schedule, the Mixed Pinehurst brings together top female and male players in a two-person team event. The championship was first played in 1964, and in recent decades it has attracted many of the top players in the Met Area. In fact, in 2012 the tournament was expanded to include porfessionals. Its significance is in both the relatively low Handicap Index thresholds for the competitors and the format, which encourages teamwork and demands that the players’ games complement one another.   

Gail Flanagan, the 2006 Women’s Met Open champion and one of the most accomplished female amateur players in Met Area history, has won the Mixed Pinehurst three times with three different playing partners. In 2006, she paired with Raymond Floyd Jr., son of four-time major championship winner Raymond Floyd, to take the title at Tam O’Shanter.
