Player Services: 2017 MGA Member Days

Ever wonder what this Member Day Program is all about?

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about the program. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to contact Drew Rosen at drosen@mgalinks.org or 774-430-9096.

Who is eligible to participate in MGA Member Day events?

Any person that carries an active GHIN number at any MGA Member club is eligible to play in any MGA Member day.  There are no handicap requirements.

What is the maximum number of sites I can enter the lottery for?

There is no limit to the number of events you can enter your name for the lottery drawing.  If there are multiple sites that appeal to you, you are free to enter and request up to 4 spots for each event.

How many times can I enter the lottery?

Each player is only allowed to enter the lottery for each event one time. The number of events you enter and the number of events you are selected as a winner are completely random.

If I win the lottery and can no longer attend can I transfer my spots to a friend?

No, if you are selected as a Member Day lottery winner you are the only one who can register and complete payment for the event.

What if I registered and paid for a Member Day and I can no longer attend? Do I sacrifice all of my requested spots?

No, if you registered and paid for a Member Day and you can no longer attend the event, you are permitted to substitute another player for your spot and your group will remain entered and eligible for the event. Please contact Drew Rosen regarding substitutions at: drosen@mgalinks.org or (774) 430-9096

What if you and another person you plan to play with are both are selected as lottery winners?

In the event that you and someone that you plan on playing with are selected as lottery winners, the first person to log-in and complete payment using your GHIN number will solidify your spot in the field.

What happens if I am not selected as a lottery winner?

If your name is not drawn as a lottery winner you will automatically be added to the waiting list in the order the lottery was drawn.  If spots become available in the field at a later date, you will be notified via email ASAP.

What happens if I fail to register and complete payment within 48 hours of being notified that I was a lottery winner?

If you do not log-in to your MyMGA portal to register and complete payment within 48 hours of being selected as a lottery winner, you will lose your spot(s) in the field and be placed at the bottom of the waiting list.

When and how do I get my tee times?

Approximately one week prior to the event, tee times, player information and host facility details will be emailed to you directly and be available on the event web site.

If my group can no longer make it to the Member Day we have registered for what is the withdrawal and refund policy?

If you or your group cannot make to a Member Day that you had already registered for, there is a $10.00 per player withdrawal fee if you notify Drew Rosen at least 7 calendar days in advance.  If you notify Drew Rosen in less than 7 calendar days but more than 48 hours prior to the event, there is a $40.00 per player withdrawal fee.  No refunds will be issued within 48 hours of the event.  Please contact Drew Rosen regarding withdrawals at: drosen@mgalinks.org or (774) 430-9096.

What happens when adverse weather conditions occur on the day of the event?

In the case of rain, the event will proceed as planned unless the golf course is deemed unplayable by the MGA and the host club.  Should the need arise to reschedule the event due to adverse weather, players will be notified as far in advance as possible by email and information will also be available on the event web site.  In the event of lightning, play will be postponed until conditions are safe to proceed and every effort will be made to complete the round.  In the case of a frost delay, changes in starting times will be sent to players by email as soon as possible and updated information will also be available on the event web site.
