    • Hi Daniel,

      If you have ever competed in a professional long drive event, that we would consider you a pro. Otherwise, as an amateur, you would be most welcome! Just go to our Registration page and either download the form and mail it in or use the online registration button.

  3. If I turn 50 August 1 2017 am I eligable

    • Hi Dan,

      Yes. Mesquite Senior Games goes by the age you are at the end of the year. So, age as of 12/31/2017. Hope to see you there!

      Terri
