Berkeley Senior Men’s Golf Association schedule of tournaments for 2021

The BSMGA, and the Club Professional Staff have agreed upon a number of Senior Tournaments (listed below)
usually played during the week to which all seniors are invited.  
Senior Tournaments include white and gold tees players.  This list does not include all regular scheduled Berkeley tournaments which have a “Masters Division” for those seniors who prefer to play from the regular (white) tees.

Stableford Tournament  -  June 16, 2021

Senior Net Championships

Ringer (2-Day) Tournament

“Senior Claus” Tournament…2-man Senior Scramble on Wednesday prior to

the Santa Claus Open

The vast majority of Country Club members are over the age of 50 and Berkeley is no exception.  A good chunk

of them are still working, but a significant proportion of them are retired.  Stepping forward to the white tees or even further to the gold tees gives seniors an opportunity to challenge the course when the length of the course is

reduced to manageable levels.  Competing on a course more manageable has brought more fun back into these competitions.  Berkeley has further made a decision to conform to USGA rules allowing competitors to play from the tees established for their handicap in the same tournament.  This means players whose handicaps are established from the white or gold tees may compete with players from the blue or player tees.

 

 

North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association – 2021 Schedule of Tournaments

The Berkeley Senior Men’s Golf Association will be well represented at the North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association Board Meetings in January and February planning for the 2021 season.  All 17 participating country clubs  continue to stay open and continue to take precautions to remain open.  The match play program for 2021 has

worked out very nicely, so we anticipate a full schedule for next year.  NASMGA will extend our individual memberships into 2021 at no additional cost.  Therefore, we will reduce the annual membership for

the BSMGA to $20 for our current members.  New members will be charged $40 of which $20 will go to the NASMGA for membership for 2021.
