Defending champion Julie Massa of Holt will join four former title holders as the Michigan Women's Senior Amateur Championship takes place Wednesday and Thursday at Moors Golf Club in Portage, Michigan.

The champions bracket includes three-time winner Maureen Whitehead of Charlevoix, two-time titleholder Joan Garety of Ada, two-time champion Susan Campbell of Kalamazoo, and 2015 winner Donna Benford of Linden. Another former champion, Cindy Obermeyer, is competing in one of the other flights.

The Michigan Women's Senior Amateur will crown a champion in the championship bracket as well as winners in three other brackets named after Golf Association of Michigan notables. All participants are guaranteed two days of play because consolations matches are also part of the format.
