The 2005-2006 Winter Series events include eight competitions, five individual events and three four-ball events. There are three age divisions, Mid-Senior (40-54), Senior (55-64) and Super Senior (65 & over). There is only gross scoring (no net division). However, each age division is flighted after the first round. The Winter Series is a great opportunity for golfers of all levels to compete in competitive events that normally may not because they do not live in Florida year round.
