2016 Schedule and Competition Changes
We are pleased to announce the schedule for 2016 for the Medalist GA. We will start the season with our Four-ball competition at Blackhorse South in March and play one individual event in each of the following three months. We will finish our season in July with the Tour Championship at Champions GC.
Senior and Mid-Am: Both Senior Amateurs and Mid Amateurs will compete in the same tournament. We will however have two sets of tee markers for each individual event. The tees will be set using the following guidelines. PAR 3 HOLES: All par 3 holes will be played from he same yardage. PAR 4 HOLES: The shorter holes will be played from the same yardage while the longer ones will be played from different yardages appropriate to the playability of the hole. PAR 5 HOLES: All par 5 holes will be played from different yardages. We will aim to play the Senior tees at 6500-6700 yds. and the Mid-Am tees from 6900-7100 yards. These are merely guidelines that will be put in place but each venue may have some slight variances.
Our condensed season plan will allow us to use the current season to issue exemptions to the City Amateur. 2016 tournament results and point standing will produce the exemptions for the 2016 City Amateur.
