ABOUT THE Minnesota Players Championship

After the MGA Amateur changed from a match play to stroke play format in 1967, the MGA was without a match-play championship. That changed when the Players' Championship was created and first hosted in 1979 at Interlachen Country Club, Edina. The MGA annually invites the state's top 17 amateurs to participate along with 47 qualifiers from a field of over 300. Only 64 golfers compete during three days of match-play competition. The strong field always provides for an exciting tournament
