The Mapesters

The Mapesters is an invite-only, best-of-the-best stroke play tournament held annually on Masters' Saturday. To receive an invitation, golfers must place first in one of the Mapesters' qualifiers in either gross or net divisions. These qualifiers include our many club tournaments (most being open to the public), winning the championship flight of Member or Senior Member League, qualifying for the Senior and Men's Championship Flight of the Club Tournament, winning your flight in the Club Tournament, and the Season Long Best Ball. 

In addition to these entries, the ten best from each of the area clubs are invited. From The Meadows, Village Green, Moorhead Country Club, Rose Creek, Edgewood, Fargo Country Club, and Oxbow, we invite the six best men, two best ladies, and two best senior golfers. Talk to your course's Head Golf Professional about how you can get a chance to win the white jacket!

Finally, The Mapesters Committee is allowed ten special invitees. These invitees cannot be members of Maple River Golf Club, but are anyone from well-known golfers from in and out of the area, to local celebrities.

Look for your invitation in early April, and start your golf season with The Mapesters!
