Golf on the Prairie

A 2013 Preview of KGA events

One thing about golfers – we know how to deal with adversity and changing conditions.  No matter what happens in Washington, or how high the price of gas may become, or how little rain the season may bring, we are going to play golf this year in Kansas!

After the drought of 2012 we know that some of the best golf course superintendents in the nation work right here in Kansas.   Rounds were up last year and the health of our game is much better now.  Kudos also to our state’s golf professionals and club managers for leading the way through these tough financial times.

The Kansas Golf Association is looking forward to another great year of competitive golf offerings for players of all ages and skill levels.  In fact, our slogan for the year is “There’s a Game for Everyone”!

Too often it is said that KGA events are for only the “best players”.  Actually, that is not the case!  If you like to play golf by the rules and count every stroke (and penalty strokes!) then why not accept the personal challenge of testing your game (and your nerves) in a KGA competition?  It is “real” golf, and really fun too!

Seniors (age 50 and over) have three KGA championships and the popular KGA Senior Series to give them up to 26 days of competition in 2013.  And by the way, Super Seniors have their own division as well.  That would be the golf veterans age 60 and older!  Don’t worry if you don’t normally break 80, all KGA senior events are designed to include fair competition for the net player as well.

Mid-Amateurs now have the same 17-event lineup as the Seniors in the KGA Mid-Amateur Series.  Participation in this series can lead to a spot in the prestigious annual Kanza Players Cup.  Of course, there are many KGA championships that appeal to our mid-amateurs, notably the Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship, The Railer, the High Plains Amateur and the Kansas Four-Ball.   Net players have several opportunities in these events too.

Juniors have the Kansas Junior Golf Association program to keep them sharp in the summer.  The big event is the Kansas Junior Amateur and many of our juniors qualify for the Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship field.  And don’t forget about the Father-Son Championship!

Take a look at our complete offering of golf competitions at www.kansasgolf.org.  From the website you can enter online or print an entry form.

The KGA staff looks forward to seeing you in 2013!

Keep swinging!
