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.
This is a Google Calendar that has all four teams schedules on it. This is for reference only and may not be up to date. 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.

Metro Seniors League
Additionally, Brookview has two teams entered into the fully handicapped Metro Seniors League and competes with other courses in the metro. Any BMGA member with a current handicap and who is over 50 during the year of competition can participate. The rounds are on Friday mornings at area courses. For each team, Brookview sends 4 players per round (A,B,C,D).
