The detailed event schedule is posted on the masters section of ussa.org:
Note: in order to manage the large field of competitors and provide good conditions for all at this championship event, competitors are split into several groups by age and gender. The groupings are A (men 21-54, classes 1-5), B (men 55-64, classes 6-8), C (all women), and D (men 65+, classes 9-14). The SG and the GS events are run on two courses to separate the younger A/B classes from the C/D groups of older men and all ladies, while in the SL each group generally competes on their own course (whenever the group has over 40 competitors). The C/D groups at the 2017 nationals were not large enough for separate courses, but the A/B SL was split by groups to accomodate the large B group.
