Masters Division Guidelines

Masters Division Contacts

 


The Masters Division is age restricted: Men's Masters (30+); Men's Masters (33+); Mixed Masters (30+ for women, and 33+ for men); Women's Grand Masters (37+); Men's Grand Masters (40+); and Great Grand Masters (45+ for women, and 50+ for men).

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. In 2017 the division expanded to include the Great Grand Masters, Men's Grand Masters, and Women's Grand Masters divisions.
