Golf season must be soon upon us. On top of many golf associations now taking registrations for their events so too are the three golf tournaments that are part of the BMG Cup Series for 2013.
The series, run in cooperation with Flagstick Golf Magazine, sees three high quality golf tournaments conducted for amateur golfers throughout eastern Ontario.
It starts in the Spring, on May 25/26 at Smuggler’s Glen Golf Course near Gananoque for the Flagstick Shootout. This invitational event showcases the top amateurs of the region with only 72 spots available for the 36 hole event. Last year saw Limestone College golfer Clayton Present add his name to the trophy, joining past winners Allan McGee, Dwight Reinhart, and Joe Matthews. The application for this no flight event targeted at low index players can be found here:
New this year as part of the series is the Flagstick Open at eQuinelle. A flighted event targeted at male amateurs with a maximum index of 18, the eQuinelle tournament should prove to be quite popular given the appeal of the golf course and proximity to Ottawa. The 7,000-yard Darrell Huxham design located in Kemptville, Ontario is known for it’s quality greens and enjoyable layout. The registration for the Flagstick Open at eQuinelle (July 26/27, 2013) can be found here:
2013 will mark the second year that the Flagstick Magazine BCC Open will be played. Last year it was 6-time Ottawa City & District Champion Allen McGee that tamed the tricky Brockville Country Club course to become the inaugural champion. Played for the Stanley Thompson trophy, a handcrafted work of art that honours the memory of one of Canada’s greatest golf course designers, the BCC Open is open to players with an index of 18 and under. It will be played on September 14/15, 2013. The registration form can be found here:
Bauder Media Group Publisher Jeff Bauder says he is excited to get the BMG Cup Series started this year with the registration kick-off.
“It’s the first year with the three events and even before players were able to sign up there is a buzz about the tournaments. That’s great to see. We want them to provide a quality tournament experience for all the players and thank to sponsors like Nike Golf Canada, we’ll be able to provide that and more. ”
Bauder says the three events will truly become a “series” shortly when a points system is revealed. Players will gain points for their play throughout the year, with their top two finishes counting towards their final result.
The Publisher adds that they are finalizing details for the season long award and will reveal it soon, along with the rest of the series details.
