The MGA’s USGA qualifying calendar begins in May with local qualifying rounds for the 123rd U.S. Open Championship. This year players have their sights on advancing all the way to Los Angeles Country Club, which welcomes its first-ever U.S. Open Championship. Local qualifying will take place at more than 100 sites across the country.

The MGA will host five local qualifying rounds between May 1-15, with players having the chance to advance from Colonial Springs Country Club, Cold Spring Country Club, Hamilton Farm Golf Club, Paramount Country Club, and White Beeches Golf & Country Club. Players then compete over 36 holes in final qualifying, with the MGA this year returning to Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, N.J., on June 5 to see who punches their ticket to Los Angeles for the June 15-18 championship.

A pair of U.S. Junior Championship qualifiers take place around the same stretch, May 30 at Essex Fells Country Club and June 6 at Pelham Country Club. Those earning qualifying positions advance to the Ralston Creek Course at Daniel Island Club in Charleston, S.C., July 24-29.

After the Met Area had the privilege of hosting the U.S. Amateur Championship at The Ridgewood Country Club in 2022, this year the event heads to Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colo., August 14-20. The MGA will conduct a quartet of qualifiers at Garden City Country Club, Forsgate Country Club (Banks), Haworth Country Club and Bonnie Briar Country Club.

The 2023 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship stands as a highly anticipated event on the calendar, with many players no doubt looking to forward to an opportunity to qualify for a national championship right in their own backyard.

“Our robust lineup of USGA qualifiers in 2023 is highlighted by three U.S. Mid-Amateur qualifiers, which is one more than a typical year due to the championship being conducted at Sleepy Hollow Country Club,” says MGA Director of Championships Chris Gaffney. “Three top courses in the area will be the gateway to the national championship, with Knickerbocker in New Jersey, Sunningdale in Westchester, and The Seawane Club on Long Island serving as hosts for the sectional qualifiers.”

The MGA will conduct qualifying rounds for three different senior national championships. The qualifier for the U.S. Senior Open comes first, taking place May 23 at Arcola Country Club, while U.S. Senior Women’s Open and U.S. Senior Amateur qualifiers fall on July 20 and 24 at Ardsley Country Club and New Jersey National Golf Club, respectively.

A trio of qualifiers for 2024 championships close out the MGA’s USGA qualifying schedule, with Wiltwyck Golf Club (Sept. 29) and Noyac Golf Club (Oct. 10) hosting qualifiers for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball and Morris County Golf Club (Oct. 18) doing so for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball.

Players looking to compete in USGA championships should visit the USGA’s website to view complete details including specific eligibility requirements, application dates, deadlines and more for each event.

The MGA will release its championship schedule on Thursday, February 2 with the airing of the 2023 Championship Preview Show Presented by Dewar's.
