May 20th 2020 - DALLAS, TX (May 20,2020) – The Trans-Mississippi Golf Association announced today that the 117th Trans-Mississippi Amateur Championship scheduled for July 6-10,2020 at Windsong Farm Golf Club just outside Minneapolis, MN has been cancelled due the COVID-19 pandemic. This announcement is made at this time to allow players to adjust their playing schedules, while knowing that the ever-changing landscape of state and local restrictions continue to evolve.
“The Trans-Mississippi Board of Directors and leadership at Windsong Farm Golf Club are truly disappointed about not being about to host the Championship, but the safety of the players, volunteers and staff was the driving factor in the decision. What we know today will certainly be different tomorrow and what things look like in July is any one’s guess” stated TMGA President Robert McDonald III.
The Trans-Mississippi Golf Association has conducted the Championship since 1901 and has provided a national stage for players across the country to showcase their skills on some of the finest clubs across the country. “The ability to conduct an event in a manner that meets the highest standards of player experience was one that we just felt would be hard to do considering what could be restrictive beyond just the golf,” said TMGA Executive Director Rob Addington. “Windsong Farm Golf Club is a wonderful test of golf and will be a truly special place to conduct the event. The TMGA will work with the club to bring the Championship back to Windsong Farm Golf Club and the great state of Minnesota.”
We wish the players, their families, and the golf community at large the very best hoping that we are all safely playing the game we love together in the very near future.
