Glade Valley MISGA
What is MISGA?
MISGA (pronounced miss-guh) is the acronym for the Maryland Interclub Senior Golf Association. MISGA was founded in 1975 as a non-profit organization with the purpose of developing greater interest, enjoyment, communication, and participation in golf by senior members of golf clubs in the State of Maryland (“senior” being at least 50 years old). Its geographic reach has since been expanded to include clubs in Delaware and West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. Its goal is to foster friendship and camaraderie through tournaments and mixers on a host and guest basis and to provide an opportunity to play at other member golf and country clubs. As of the 2019 season, MISGA is affiliated with 43-member clubs and 2268 Associates. (MISGA web site: http://misga.org)
Glade Valley MISGA
Glade Valley MISGA is for senior golfers, ladies and men, who enjoy playing weekly organized golf at Glade Valley and other MISGA clubs, both public and private, throughout the area. Glade Valley MISGA plays two types of events, regular play and mixers. Both are generally shotgun starts with the men playing the senior tees and the ladies the forward tees. Regular play events are simply 18-hole golf rounds played generally at Glade Valley amongst our own MISGA members. It is basically like league play. We play on Tuesdays weekly (when not playing elsewhere) and play various formats for a small $3 cash pot. Mixers events are more tournament like play with participants from two or more different golf clubs paired together as foursomes. The format is generally the better two balls of a foursome and where each foursome plays against the field. Foursomes are paired by the hosting venue. All mixers include coffee with a morning snack, golf with a cart, lunch and prizes. Mixer events typically have several prizes: net team winners (1st, 2nd, …), closest to the pin, and a 50/50 raffle. All play utilizes an establish USGA player handicap to level the field so all abilities have a nearly equal chance at winning (higher handicaps maybe even more so). If you do not have an established handicap, one will be established for you after playing three 18-hole rounds.
Glade Valley MISGA will host 6 home mixers in 2022 and member associates will have the opportunity to participate in 22 away mixers at 16 different venues. To view the Glade Valley MISGA schedule, click on the above SCHEDULE tab.
How much does it Cost?
The cost of a Glade Valley MISGA membership is $20 for MISGA dues plus $50 for a Valley Card and a $35 fee for maintaining your USGA handicap. All MISGA members are required to have a USGA handicap. Glade Valley Golf Club members pay only the $20 MISGA dues as the other costs are already part of your membership. The cost to participate in each of our regular play events is $31 ($0 for those with an appropriate Glade Valley club membership) and $53 for each of our home mixer events ($28 for Glade Valley club members with the cart plan), both are to be paid to the pro shop at check-in. The cost for our away mixer events for 2022 is between $43-$70, depending on the venue (see SCHEDULE).
