Every year, the Golf Association of Michigan selects three players to represent the State of Michigan in either the USGA Men’s or Women’s State Team Championships. Two of those three players are selected from GAM Honor Roll points. The third team member is a Committee selection. The 2016 USGA Men’s State Team Championship will be played at Country Club of Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, September 28-30, 2016. The team will be selected using points from September 2, 2014 to the end of the 2014 season, 2015 points, and 2016 points (doubled) up until Friday, September 2nd, 2016.
The Championship is open to female and male amateur golfers as selected by each state golf association or administrative body. At present, collegiate players are not eligible to compete in this championship. The NCAA rules state that a player may only play in an international team competition when that team is sponsored by the national governing body, such as the Curtis Cup Match (female), Walker Cup Match (male) or the World Amateur Team Championships. Any infraction of that rule means the collegiate player may be declared ineligible for the remainder of the season and the following season.
