The BMGA is proud to support four different traveling teams, including the 16-Man Team, the 8-Man Senior Team, and two teams in the fully handicapped Metro Seniors League.
Always contact your team captain for the complete schedule.
The 16-man team plays five matches with divisional teams either at Brookview or at opponents’ courses before the playoffs. The format of play is similar to the Ryder Cup: two players from each team play a non-handicapped 4-ball match for 3 total points: 1 point for the front nine, 1 point for the back nine, and 1 point for overall. The team with the most points wins the match. The Team Captain for 2021 is Erik Swanson.

- 16-Man Team Still Hot (7/17/2019)
- 16-Man Team Moving On (6/10/2019)

8-Man Senior Team
There is also an 8-man senior traveling team available only to seniors that play matches similar to the 16-man team. The Team Captain for 2021 is Steve Houtz.
Players must be an amateur, a member of the MPGA member club they are representing and have a Handicap Index for the current season. Players must be at least 55 years of age or older during the calendar year of competition. Note: all players must play from the same tees.

For each team, Brookview sends 4 players per round (A,B,C,D).
