About the NSGA (2018)

The Nebraska Senior Golf Association (NSGA) is a non-profit, charitable organization. All officers and board members serve as volunteers. To read the NSGA Administrative Guidelines, click here.

The NSGA annually donates to the Nebraska Golf Association (NGA) for the junior golf program.

There are 15 regular weekly events scheduled for 2018, starting with The Players Club in Omaha on April 30 and ending with Oak Hills Country Club in Omaha on August 20. These are all 2-man team Best Ball tournaments using 90% of handicap. However, if you are unable to locate a partner or your partner is unable to play. we will accomodate you as an individual. Everyone 70 and older (and those with physical limitations) may play a forward set of tees with appropriate handicap adjustment. If those individuals wish to play the regular tees, they must notify the Tournament Director and play those tees for all events in which they participate. That means a player can't switch back and forth from the forward tees to the regular tees, depending on the course being played.

To allow everyone a fair chance to enter, entry forms for these events will be available on or around April 1 each year. Submitting hand-written entries before that date will not improve your chances of getting into an event. That's because we use a lottery system for any tournament that is oversold. Once the entry forms are available, there will be a 10-day submission period for everyone to get their entries to the Tournament Director. If an event is overbooked, teams from all the entries will be drawn until the maximum number is reached, then another 10 will be put on a waiting list. Refunds will be made to any team not making the regular or waiting lists. All events not sold out will continue to be filled on a first-come first-served basis. The entry forms will be available about April 1 in the following:

---the printed NSGA booklet distributed each spring
---the online booklet in the "How to Join" section of this website
---online in the "Events" section for each individual event

Entry fees are required as indicated on the entry form and are due before players will be entered into the tournament. Additionally, to play in NSGA events, a player must have paid his membership dues for the current year. New members are welcome anytime during the season.

The Nebraska Golf Association (NGA) conducts two senior golf championships each season, the Senior Stroke Play Championship and the Senior Match Play Championship. This year the dates of those events don't interfere with our weekly NSGA outings as has occasionally been the case in the past. These are not NSGA events, but both are open to all NSGA members and have both gross and handicap flights. The NGA is not officially affiliated with the NSGA, but they welcome and encourage our participation in these two state championships for seniors.

In the fall we will have our year-ending state tournament to be held this year at the Fremont Golf Club in Fremont on the 27th and 28th of August. This tournament is open to individuals, two-man teams, or both, giving everyone a chance to participate and excel within his age group, as well as overall. More information on this event is included in the "2018 Schedule of Events and Membership" booklet. If you didn't receive one in the mail (the deadline was March 15 to get a mailed copy), a pdf copy is available on this website under the "Membership" tab.

We look forward to your participation this year and wish you the best of luck in all your events.


Letter from the President


To Fellow NSGA Members,

As I write this, the forecast high for today is 67. I hope everyone can get in some early practice rounds in preparation for our great slate of events beginning April 30 at The Players Club. We have scheduled 15 weekly events, plus the State Tournament August 27 and 28 at the Fremont Golf Club.

Please read the "2018 Schedule of Events and Membership" booklet, as we have a couple changes this year. As one example, the Hole-in-One Club will continue, but in a different format. This and other subjects you need to read are covered in the "important NSGA Tidbits" section, along with other noteworthy items.

New members are always welcome and encouraged. Please consider asking your eligible friends, neighbors, co-workers or relatives to join the NSGA. Membership applications are available on the NSGA website, www.nebgolf.org/nsga, or by contacting a board member.

Just a reminder - after you sign up for a weekly tournament, be sure to check the the NSGA website schedule of events a few days later to ensure you are listed to play in the events for which you registered. If you are not listed, contact Dave McEwen, our Director of Tournaments.

Remember to pay your 2018 dues and sign up for events.

Thanks for being an NSGA member and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!

John Haney
2018 President
Nebraska Senior Golf Association
