Eligibility: Women who are amateur golfers and Maine residents are eligible (with few restrictions) to play in the MWA. Non-resident, female amateurs are also eligible to play in the MWA with the following restrictions. A non-resident is eligible if she has been an SMWGA or WMSGA member for ten years and resides in Maine for at least five months a year OR if she has played in at least three association tournaments since the prior year's MWA. An active duty service member stationed in Maine is also eligible if she lives in Maine and holds a membership at a club affiliated with the SMWGA or the WMSGA. An applicant must have a handicap index equal to or lower than 36.0. In addition, an applicant must be a member in good standing of the WMSGA or SMWGA and an affiliated member club on or before the day she submits her application.   
Please note that the 2016 MWA and rained out tournaments do not qualify as tournaments for non-residents.

Junior Championship: If at least two juniors are accepted into the field of competitors, the MWA will run a Junior Championship within the parameters of the amateur event. Juniors will compete in both tournaments. To be eligible, a junior must...

  • be 18 years old or younger (or still in high school) on July 26, 2017.
  • meet all other posted eligibility requirements. 
    Please note that the 2016 MWA and rained out tournaments do not qualify as tournaments for non-residents.

Pairings:  With the exception of the defending champion, who has earned the honor of teeing off first on the first tee, pairings will be by handicap index.

  • Day 1 - The defending champion tees off first on the first tee. Her two playing partners will have the lowest two handicap indexes in the field. The rest of the field that follows will be paired from lowest to highest handicap index.
  • Day 2 - Pairings will be based on first day gross scores with highest scores teeing off first and the leaders in the last group.
  • Day 3 - Pairings will be based on combined, two-day gross scores. The order of play is from highest to lowest gross scores.

Tee Times: Tee times will be available on WMSGA and SMWGA websites. You may also call Martindale Country Club at 782.1107.

Carts: Carts are optional. A player who wants to take a cart must reserve one and pay in advance by indicating her preference on her application form and sending payment along with her entry. No refunds will be made for cart cancellations.

A maximum of two carts will be allowed for each threesome. Singles in a cart will be allowed only when an odd number of players (1 or 3) is riding. Caddies must walk.  

Awards Ceremony with Buffet: Following completion of play on Wednesday, an award ceremony will recognize winners. During the ceremony, the Abby Spector Award will also be presented. An hors d'oeuvres buffet will be provided for competitors.

Prizes:  The MWA is proud to name a 2017 champion, runner-up, and junior champion as well as four gross winners in each of four flights. All winners will receive trophies and gift cards.
