Masters Division Guidelines

Masters Division Contacts


The Masters Division is age restricted: Masters Women's (30+); Masters Men's (33+); Grand Masters (40+ for men, and 37+ for women).

The Masters Division began in 1991 as an age-restricted division of play at the Club Championships. The Masters Women's Division was discontinued in 1998, but was reinstated in 2009 alongside the Grand Masters Division at a standalone summer event.  In 2013, the Masters Open division was renamed Masters Men's and moved from the fall to join the other divisions at the Masters Championships
