The WMGA has made the following changes to its 2020 championship schedule:
Some of these changes have been made to better accommodate social distancing guidelines that will be still in place and to reduce the number of days that players, rules officials, and staff will have to be on-site in what will likely become a very compressed schedule of events. Others have been made to accommodate host club schedules and restrictions. We are extremely grateful to all our member clubs for their continued support as host clubs, especially this season.
Senior Team Matches – cancelled
Frank Emmet Schoolboy Championship – rescheduled from Wednesday – Friday, June 17 – 19 to Monday – Tuesday, July 6 – 7. Now two rounds. There will be no cut and there will still be the High School and Middle School Divisions.
Metropolitan Amateur Championship – the format has been changed this year from one day of stroke play qualifying followed by three days and five rounds of match play to two days of stroke play with no cut. A field of 110 players will guarantee a payout of $7,000 in gift certificates to the top thirty players. All play will begin from the first tee. The field will be limited to a maximum of 120 players.
A-Team Matches – still scheduled for a mid July start.
Williamson Cup – cancelled for 2020. The WMGA is scheduled to host this event in 2022. Site TBD.
