Wintonbury Hills Men’s Golf Association 2018 Season

Welcome to the 2018 season. The WMGA Board of Directors worked during the off season making the schedule, adding some new events, changing our Ryder Cup Team event, and is also instituting Cash Prizes.

  • By joining the WMGA, members will no longer be required to purchase the Advantage Card to receive resident rates. The new WMGA rate will be $55
  • April 8th – WMGA season begins with an Individual gross net flighted event. On
  • April 15th – WMGA Welcome Breakfast at 7:30A followed by Dan Novarr bench dedication at the 12th tee with an 8:30A SHOTGUN.
    • This is in memory of Dan Novarr, a founding member of the WMGA.

The Board is proud to formally announce our new INTERCLUB RYDER CUP WEEKEND!

The first weekend of June (1st – 3rd) will feature our Inaugural match with FAIRVIEW FARMS in Harwinton. It will start Friday night with a LIVE Pairings Party at Fairview Farms, and possibly a practice round preceding for any interested parties.  The matches will be Saturday at Wintonbury and Sunday at Fairview. This promises to be great event!  There will be future communication for this event on when to sign up and the schedule of events.

Some additional changes:

  • To qualify for the Club Championships, you will need to have competed in 3 events with the WMGA prior to the Club Championships. (2-day events are considered as 1 WMGA Event)
  • Majors in 2018 will feature CASH Prizes in addition to Pro Shop Credit and prepayment for both rounds is required on the 1st day
  • NEW Events: A Modified Alternate Shot Match Play (9/9) and a 6-6-6 Event (that some are calling the Devil’s Playground) that will feature exactly 6 holes of 3 different formats: Modified Alt Shot, Scramble, and Best Ball)
  • There will no longer be “Alternate Field Events” with Pro Shop payouts except for Club Championship weeks
  • Member of the Year – Board will take nominations throughout the season from WMGA membership and will vote at end of season. Please see website for criteria, or ask a Board Member with questions.
