2020 State Senior Tourney cancelled due to coronavirus pandemic

The Montana State Senior Golf Association board of directors has cancelled the 2020 Montana State Senior Golf Tournament in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a letter to members, the board explained that through its review and deliberation of numerous possibilities and contingencies, the board “could not satisfactorily ensure the safety and well-being of tournament participants given that the majority of our members fall under the status of being in the vulnerable population, including those age 65 and older.”

The USGA has cancelled this year’s national senior championships, including the U.S. Senior Open. The Montana Senior Olympics has also been cancelled for the same reasons.

Cancelling the event for the only time in 66 years was a very difficult decision, Kevin Hayes, our executive director explained. “But safety of our members and adhering to official guidance was compelling.”

The MSSGA board wants to thank our Missoula partner courses — Canyon River, Larchmont and the Ranch Club — for their assistance and understanding in the effort to conduct this year’s event.

The MSSGA also thanks our members whose support allows for our continuing operation and mission to promote senior golf in Montana. We are anxious to restart this unique and special tradition next summer.
