The 2020 WMGA Metropolitan Amateur Championship scheduled for August 6 – 7 at the CC at Woodmore has been postponed. Heavy rain associated with tropical storm Isaias has exacerbated stressed conditions due to the extremely hot temperatures of the last few weeks. The grooming and maintenance required in advance of and during the championship is unable to go forward due to the extremely wet conditions. Those requirements would place additional stress on current course conditions. Additional rain Tuesday night and the forecast for more rain Thursday and Friday has prompted the decision by the WMGA and the CC at Woodmore to postpone.
The new dates are Monday – Tuesday, October 26 – 27. It is very difficult to reschedule any event, and even more difficult under the current COVID-19 environment. The WMGA is grateful to the CC at Woodmore for being able to accommodate us on their extremely busy schedule and we look forward to conducting the championship under more favorable conditions and weather.
Players who are entered may either WD and receive a full refund via credit card or check, or they may stay in the event. Those who stay in the field are guaranteed a spot in the championship. If you stay in, you may WD at anytime prior to the close of entries on Sunday, October 18 at 6:00 PM and receive a full refund. All players have been e-mailed with these same instructions.
Entry for new players will open on Sunday, August 9 at 6:00 PM. The field will be limited to 105 players due the shorter amount of daylight time.
