Time to register for Georgia Senior Four-Ball Championship

Registration is open for the 22nd annual Georgia Senior Four-Ball Championship, which takes place Nov. 13-15 at the Country Club of Columbus and Green Island Country Club in Columbus.

This Georgia State Golf Association event is open to male amateur golfers 55 or older as of Nov. 13 and teams with a maximum handicap differential of six strokes.

The field will consist of 96 teams. The 36 teams with the lowest combined USGA Handicap Indexes will compete in the championship flight. Twelve teams with the lowest combined USGA Handicap Indexes will compete in the super senior flight (age 65 or older as of November 13). The remaining 48 teams are determined by lottery with four spots reserved for the previous year's flight winners.

During registration, players will choose either the senior division of the super senior division. The low 12 teams by USGA Handicap Index will make up the super senior flight for those teams that sign up for the super senior division.

If a team does not make the low 12 for this flight, it will either remain on a waiting list for the super senior flight or be placed in the overall field to be determined for the remaining 84 teams of the competition.

The format is 54 holes of flighted four-ball stroke play. The championship flight and super senior flight will compete at the Country Club of Columbus. Remaining flights will compete at Green Island Country Club.

Eligible players must enter at by Oct. 23.

Any questions regarding GSGA competitions should be directed to the rules and competitions department at (678) 324-5974 or

    AUGUSTA — Sinatra is gone, but we still have his music. The same is true with Nat King Cole and Elvis. It would be nice to hear them in concert again, however.

  • Loran Smith: Meeting old friends under the big oak a tradition, too

    The first time I was in a train station in Great Britain and saw a sign that read, “Meeting Place,” it brought me to a pause. How simple, how functional was this sign? In small towns it is not a problem to meet someone at Sheppard’s Filling Station or at the fireplug across the street from the Baptist church, but at a busy venue — like European train stations — there is nothing more sensible than meeting at the “Meeting Place.”
