JAMESVILLE, N.Y. – The New York State Golf Association (NYSGA) announced the 2023 Amateur Series schedule which includes nearly 20 individual stroke play events conducted across the state.
This year's series will once again kick off at Turning Stone Resort & Casino, with the opening event at Shenendoah Golf Club in Verona on May 11 and finish with the final regular-season stop at Edison Club in Rexford on September 11.

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: Men, Senior 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 #.# or less, B is #.# or higher).
As in years past, players will earn points towards the 2023 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 2023 Championship which will be hosted by Crag Burn Golf Club in East Aurora (home of the 2023 NYS Men's Mid-Amateur).
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.
