Prizes in NIMAGA tournaments consist of prize certificates which are redeemable at many pro shops and sporting goods stores throughout the Chicago area (LINK TO Who Accepts NIMAGA Gift Certificates). The prize certificates are distributed at or are mailed out after each tournament. Generally, about the top 30% of the entrants in each division receive prizes. The number and amount of prize certificates awarded in each tournament is determined by the number of entries in the tournament. In addition to a prize certificate the winners of each division receives a plaque commemorating his achievement.
The NIMAGA board strongly recommends that each NIMAGA member report all of their
adjusted scores (excluding NIMAGA
Tournament and Match Play scores) within 24 hours after the round has been played.
