We had been working on a fall event in conjunction with the Sun & Fun Association, but due to circumstances beyond our control this has been delayed until the following year. 

Please put these events in your calendar right now. Registration and information forms will be available in late winter or early spring.


March 15 Event Cancelled

We’ve encountered a number of scheduling conflicts this year and have reluctantly decided to cancel the Field Day scheduled for March 15 in Sarasota for this year.

Please check back later in the year to learn of our plans for 2015.

A Great Day in Florida

The Second Annual Florida Field Day was another great success. All 40 of the attendees arrived for the early sign-in and lunch, poolside at the Barnett’s house before heading off to the driving range. As usual, The Meadows golf staff did a great job of making sure everyone got organized and looked after and at 1:00 we headed out to the course.

Just short of 5 hours later we converged back at the club house to exchange stories of high holes, lost balls and to lovingly relive those oh so rare birdies. After a cocktail, courtesy of The Meadows Golf and Country Club, the group converged in the dining room where floor to ceiling picture windows overlooked the practice range, putting green and water fountain. The room looked great, decorated with Canadian flags and MSGA red and black. During the reception and dinner, Maritime music played in the background while a slide show of Sun & Fun golf trip pictures played.

MSGA President, Wynne Meldrum, welcomed members and guests to the event. After  an excellent three course dinner, Alan Barnett provided a bit of information about the MSGA to our guests. Scott Doane then made a presentation about his association, the Sun & Fun, which provides escorted golf travel. Finally prizes and awards. The Field Day Co-Champions were Norm Gosse and Bob Delvallet both from Ashburn in Halifax.  Other divisional results can be viewed under the Field Day Info tab.

Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the sentiment seemed to be that this should  become an annual event.

In Appreciation:

To Scott Doane, Sun & Fun Association. Scott drove four hours each way to participate in the day and present to the group. He also donated all the low gross prizes for the divisional winners.

To the Meadows Golf and Country Club. They couldn’t have been more helpful both in planning and execution. Mark Cornelissen assisted in getting the golf piece put together. Doug Domino, General Manager and Glenda Bachner, Membership Sales Director, provided welcome kits, complementary cocktails and discounted golf vouchers. Karen Lawson, the Events Coordinator did a fabulous job of putting together the reception and dining event.

MSGA in Florida!

The Maritime Seniors Golf Association (MSGA) has been covering new territory for much of its 87 year history. For the second year, it will be extending its territory all the way in to Florida! Sarasota, Florida to be exact. The second annual Florida Field Day will be held on Saturday, March 16 at the Meadows Country Club (Highlands Course).

MSGA members may bring guests (male or female) for the entire field day or just for the dinner. Eligible members and their significant other are also being encouraged to participate. (Any male over 50 who belongs to a golf club in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Maine is eligible to belong to the MSGA. )

This site will be used to update you on details such as area attractions, hotel room status and field day details. It will be updated once a week. You can check back on occasion or you can ask to be notified by following the instructions in a seperate post. Also Field Day details will be posted. We hope this will make it a little bit interesting for our golfing friends that can’t join us this year.

We hope to see you on this site, and more importantly we hope to see you on the course soon.
