Each event will feature two divisions based on age, the first division will be for golfers age 55-64 (50-64 for women), the second division for golfers 65 and over. Players will also be assigned a tee based on their age.

The senior division men (55-64) will play from an approximate yardage of 5800-6200; the super senior division men (65 and older) will play an approximate yardage of 5400-5800; all women will play an approximate yardage of 4700-5400. 

Players may request to play from a longer or shorter set of tees used in the event when pairings have been released.

Tournament FAQs

  • How do I ensure I get paired with my friend or family member?

    Beginning in 2022, select your tee time software will be used for all events. Make sure that you follow instructions on how to select your tee time, which will be sent out by staff shortly after registration is closed. Pairings requests and distance from the facility will be considered for players who fail to select their tee times, however,  Senior Series staff WILL NOT rearrange pairings to meet an individual’s requests for failing to use the select your tee time software. In the event that select your tee time software is not used, we will accommodate your request to the best of our ability using Google surveys sent out shortly after registration closes–to further ensure that you are paired with those people, you will want to ask them to do the same. (Please note if you write down someone’s name, who does not have your name in that same field and instead has other players’ names, you may not be paired with that person. Additionally, please note that a friend or family member who has been added to the event after pairings have been released, in most circumstances, we will not be able to re-arrange pairings/teams to accommodate that original request).

  • How are tee times determined when it comes to tee time requests?

    Beginning in 2022, all players will have the ability to select their tee time. Soon after the registration deadline closes, the Senior Series staff will notify all players when tee time registration is available. Players will then be able to select their tee time on a first-come, first-serve basis. For players who fail to select a tee time, Senior Series staff will assign that player a tee time. Pairings requests and distance from the facility will be considered for players who fail to select their tee times, however, staff WILL NOT rearrange pairings to meet an individual’s requests for failing to use the select your tee time software. In the event that tee time registration is not used, Senior Series staff will take in factors such as distance to travel and other exceptional circumstances to try and accommodate those players first. (Please note that tee time requests for players added to the event off the waitlist after pairings have been released will have no bearing.)

  • I have been put on the waitlist, when will my credit card be charged?

    Your credit card will not be charged until confirmed into the event.

  • I have been put on the waitlist, when will I be notified if I have been confirmed into the event?

    If a spot becomes available for you prior to the entry deadline, we will automatically add you to the event; your credit card will be charged and a confirmation email will be sent to you. If a spot becomes available for you after the entry deadline, we will contact you by phone or email to confirm you are still interested in playing before confirming you into the event.

  • I am registered for an event, however, my friend who signed up after me was waitlisted. I only want to play if my friend can play with me. What are my options?

    Your best option is not to cancel for the event and wait until right before the entry deadline to see if your friend gets confirmed into the event. If he/she does not get confirmed into the event by the entry deadline, you may cancel at that time for the $10 processing fee. (Please note that if you do decide to remain in the event and your friend subsequently gets into the event from off the waitlist, and pairings have already been released, in most circumstances, we will not be able to re-arrange pairings/teams to accommodate that original request.)

  • Are spectators allowed at Senior Series events?

    Yes, spectators are welcome at Senior Series events. However, spectator carts are not allowed, and spectators are expected to walk if they are to come and follow a group. A spectator who rents or brings a cart, will be notified by an NCGA official that the cart is not allowed and will be asked to return the cart immediately. If a spectator rides with a player, due to a cart seat becoming available, or by choosing to drive/ride while the player walks, the spectator then becomes a caddie, and is responsible for any rules infractions that may come about for that player (see question below). Walking spectator(s) should keep a fair and comfortable distance from the group they are following. This means, not walking on the greens or on tees, and staying out of the fairway when possible, and instead walking near or on the cart path.

  • Are caddies allowed at Senior Series events?

    Yes, caddies are allowed at Senior Series events, however riding caddies may not be allowed due to the Senior Series two-cart per group policy. Caddies are responsible for any rules infractions that may occur for the player he/she is caddying for. The Rules of Golf have specific rules for caddies, see Rule 10.3. It is the player’s responsibility to make sure his/her caddie knows the rules.

  • What is the cancellation policy?

    After a player has signed up, he/she may cancel from the event at any time prior to the registration deadline for a processing fee of $10. Players will need to cancel through their registration account, or if not possible email the Senior Series staff-in-charge. Immediately following the registration deadline, the cancellation fee increases to $25 for a three-day period. Any cancellation after the second deadline is subject to a loss of all funds, unless a replacement can be filled from the waiting list at the cancellation cost of $25.

  • I played in a Senior Series event and placed in my flight (and/or won a skin). How and when do I receive my winnings?

    Players will be paid out awards with Amazon.com gift cards. These are done in batches, approximately once a month. Please allow up to 4 weeks after the event to receive an Amazon.com gift card via email.
