MGA Championship Update - April 27, 2020
 

MGA Members & Member Clubs, 

The Mississippi Golf Association hopes that all of you and your families are safe and well during this pandemic. Our greatest concern continues to be the well-being of everyone involved, and we are respecting the advice of our government and health officials, CDC, and other leaders in regards to our upcoming championship schedule.

As of April 27th the Mississippi Golf Association has decided to extend the postponement of its Championship Schedule based on the current Safer in Place Executive Order and the restrictions and guidelines that it contains along with the current CDC recommendations. The postponement will now be extended through June 1, 2020. 
 
The staff is working hard to provide advisory to all of our Member Clubs at this time and postponements or cancellations of any Sanctioned Events will also be communicated through the MGA via email and social media. At this time the following championship schedule changes have been made:

Bill Cass Senior Four-Ball (Postponed) - New Date is Sept. 4-6, 2020
