All weekend NIMAGA tournaments will be played in the following three divisions *:

  • Palmer (Low) Division
  • Player (Mid) Division
  • Trevino (High) Division
*  To determine the members in each division in a given tournament, the entire field for the tournament will be divided by handicap index into three approximately equal groups (Palmer, Player, and Trevino).  If the number of entries for a weekend tournament is less than 69 members (excluding Two-Man Better Ball and/or Four-Man Scramble tournaments), it will be a two division tournament, Low and High.  All Midweek tournaments will be two division tournaments Low and High.  If the number of entries for a midweek tournament is less than 46 members, it will be a one division tournament.

All NIMAGA members are required to play in their respective divisions.  Pairings and starting times will be assigned on a random basis with no preference being given to members' requests for specific playing partners or foursomes.  Every effort will be made to place those traveling together for tournaments in close groups.  Please let us know when completing your tournament entry applications.

Registration for tournaments will be available on February 15, 2023. If you want to check on availability for a tournament once registration has closed, please contact
