About the 2016 SDGA Tournament:

The 2016 Tournament will be held at The Sawmill Golf Club on June 24, 25 and 26.

The Tournament will consist of two Divisions, the Open Division and the Legends Division.  Players 50 years of age or older must elect to play in the Open Division or the Legends Division, but not both.  Both the Open and Legends Division Tournaments will be 3 day, 3 round events, played concurrently, with each field being cut for the final day of competition.

NOTE: All participants are responsible for knowing and complying with the Rules and Procedures governing the Tournament. 

 

Tournament Entry/Registration:

THERE IS NO LONGER A QUALIFYING TOURNAMENT FOR ENTRY.  Players will be registered for the tournament in the order that registration and payment is received.  Registration will close either on the date specified or when each field is full (whichever comes first).  Players who meet exemption criteria will have an opportunity to register before general registration. 

Players can register online at www.saginawdistrictgolf.com or by mail/drop-off to R.C. Hendrick (2885 S. Graham, Saginaw, MI 48609).  Mailed registrations will be time-stamped when they are opened during regular business hours (8am-4pm Mon-Fri). 

If a player fails to return a score that is within 20 strokes of the cut for their division, future entries in SDGA competitions may be declined.

 

Exempt Registration:

There will be an early registration window for past participants who meet the exemption criteria described below.  Exempt players may also continue to register during general registration as well but registration will close once the field is full.  Entry fee is $125 and must accompany registration.

For 2016, Exempt Registration opens at 8 am, Monday, May 9, and closes at 4 pm, Monday, May 23.

NOTE: Exempt registrations will not be accepted before 8 am, May 9.

 

General Registration:

All players may register during general registration.  Entries will be accepted until the specified date or when each field is full (whichever comes first).  We will also accept Alternates for each division.  Alternates will be notified if they have a spot in the tournament no later than the Thursday before the tournament begins.  Entry fee is $125 and must accompany registration.

For 2016, General Registration opens at 8 am, Tuesday, May 24, and closes at 4 pm, Monday, June 13.

NOTE: General registrations will not be accepted before 8 am, May 24.
