Beginning on March 1 remember to record your scores for Handicap Purposes
Welcome to the 2021 Men’s Golf Association (MGA) website, please browse the site to learn about everything that is planned and is happening now regarding your MGA. On the site you can find:
Event schedule of weekly competitions and a link to Chelsea to sign up
Results from previous weekly events, both team and skins winners
Up to date Player of the Year (POY) standings
List of and dates for our MGA Majors for 2021
And much more, including Hole in One data and Contact info for your board and pros.
While 2020 was certainly a challenge with COVID restrictions in place, we had a complete and very successful year of competition. We adapted as necessary and saw tremendous support from each of you to make it enjoyable for all of us. As we head in to 2021, I want to highlight a couple of changes, hopefully, you will say, improvements to our MGA offering.
Play Your Own Tee - With the World Handicap System able to make appropriate handicap adjustments, we will open up the ability for you to sign up for our weekly events for play from the green or blue tees as well as our normal orange and white tees. Simply indicate on Chelsea when you sign up. This should be the tee you would normally play on most days, not simply a “move up” for a specific event. Green/Orange and White/Blue will share skins and POY pools. Your board will monitor the effectiveness of this new policy for 2021.
Spring Fling – New date and format. We are introducing a You-Choose 27-Hole Member/Member event on Saturday, May 8th. Play will include Better Ball, Scramble and Alternate Shot “nines”. Details will be further shared during our March weekly events with open sign-ups in April.
Two day Member/Member is moved to the fall (October 2nd/3rd). Based on a very successful fall event in 2020 and numerous suggestions to consider this move, we will plan on a similar fall tournament to the one hosted in 2020.
Looking forward to a great 2021 golf year and please see me or any of your board members if you have questions or comments. Dean Blemker
