Event Yardages: The WVGA strives in making sure that each age division is playing from an appropriate yardage at each of the Senior Series events. Yardage approximations for each division are listed below but please note that these could change slightly depending on host facility and/or weather.

Approximate Yardages:  Senior Division (6,400 yds.), Silver Division (6,000 yds.), Gold Division (5,400 yds.), and Diamond Division (5,400 yds.)

Players Meeting / Announcements: A WVGA staff member will hold a player’s meeting 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the shotgun round. It is imperative that all players be at their golf carts at this time so that the WVGA staff can go over the Notice to Players for that particular day as well as any announcements from the host facility. Once concluded, players will be instructed to their starting holes.**Some events on the schedule will not include lunch. At these events, the gift certificate payout will be increased.**

Score Posting: At the conclusion of each event each player’s score will automatically be posted to the GHIN Handicap System. Please do not enter your own scores from the competitive round, as this will result in a double post.

Contact: For any questions or concerns regarding the Senior Series please contact Sarah Cole.

Points: Senior Series Player of the Year points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers in both gross and net divisions and will be updated to the Player of the Year Points Standings the day following each event.

WVGA Senior POY Points: (30 for 1st, 20 for 2nd, 10 for 3rd) Will be awarded to the Top 3 but must be WV Residents to earn these. Points will only be awarded to players who finish in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. For example, a Non-Resident wins the 50-59 division and WV residents finish 2nd and 3rd, the player who finishes 2nd will receive 20 points and the player who finishes 3rd will receive 10 points. If Non Residents all finish in the top 3, there will be no WVGA points awarded for that event. *New for 2024

Exemption: The WV Resident with the most Gross points in the Senior Division will earn an exemption into the following year’s West Virginia Amateur and West Virginia Open. Qualification details CLICK HERE

Year-End Awards / Recognition: Winners of each division will be awarded year-end prizes at the final event as well as being recognized in front of their peers. Participation awards will also be given out for those participants who have completed in all or all but one of the season’s Senior Series events.

Sponsorship: Little General stores continues to be the presenting sponsor of the WV Senior Series and we couldn’t be more proud of the relationship that we have cultivated with them over their many years of support of amateur golf in West Virginia. We encourage all of our Senior Series participants to visit their Little General locations across the state of West Virginia in support of this great sponsor.
