While the 94th MGA Senior Amateur Championship owns the season's first deadline (April 28), the event often sells out prior to the deadline's arrival. There's already high anticipation for the championship as Round Hill Club in Greenwich, Conn., will serve has host for the first time.
The next earliest registration deadline comes on May 12 for both the MGA/WMGA Women's Public Links Championship and the 28th Senior Net Four-Ball Tournament. Competitors in the Women's Public Links will compete on the Seth Raynor-designed Rock Spring Golf Club in West Orange, N.J., while the Senior Net Four-Ball takes place at Ardsley Country Club.
Juniors and mid-amateur competitors are also encouraged to respectively review the invitation criteria for the 19th MGA Carter Cup, which returns to its home at Baltusrol Golf Club, and the 15th MGA Mid-Amateur Championship, which takes place at Friar's Head. Players qualify based on quality finishes in a variety of Met Area events.
