2021 NYSGA Amateur Series Schedule Released

March 01, 2021

JAMESVILLE, N.Y. – The New York State Golf Association (NYSGA) announced the 2021 Amateur Series schedule which includes 20+ individual stroke play events conducted across the state.

This year's series will kick off at Irondequoit Country Club (site of 2018 NYS Men’s Amateur) in Rochester on May 10 and finish with the championship scheduled for the fall at a site to be announced.

Several additional sites (including WNY clubs) will be added to the schedule as they are confirmed with the host clubs.

The fun, competitive lineup of handicapped (gross and net) stroke play events has become a popular way for NYSGA member golfers across New York to experience private golf courses, compete against others on a level and fair playing field, and earn pro shop prizes within their divisions and flights.

The events are open to NYSGA members with active, up-to-date licensed USGA Handicap Indexes. We breakdown each field into one of four divisions: MenSenior Men (55+)Super Senior Men (65+), and Women. Due to stronger participation levels, the Men and Senior Men divisions are then further divided into A and B flights based on handicap (A is 8.9 or less, B is 9.0 or higher). 

As in years past, players will earn points towards the 2021 NYSGA Amateur Series Championship based on their net finish within their flight. A player’s points total will consist of the sum of their top-5 tournament finishes. The top-120 players on the points list by season’s end will earn invitations to compete in the Championship. 

Entry fees for these one-day events include greens, cart and range fees, exclusive tee gifts and prizes. The top net and gross finishers will receive prizes in the form of pro shop gift certificates at the end of each event.

Start times for each even will be determined based on New York State COVID-19 restrictions. The NYSGA may alternatively utilize tee times for any event during the 2021 season if deemed necessary by the tournament committee.
