"Where River Landing Men meet to share a laugh, a beer, and some golf."
Info to Know
Away Game: MGA's second away game has been scheduled for Thursday, May 24 at Emerald Golf Club in New Bern. The address is: 5000 Clubhouse Dr, New Bern, NC 28562. This one is a bit of a trek, similar to Cutter Creek - about an hour and 20 minutes, we have been assured that its worth the trip. You'll have to trust your GPS to get you there. The cost is $30.00 (thank you, Larry - normally it's $56). Because of the distance, we have a 1000 hrs shot gun start.
The sign up sheet is in the Pro Shop/Locker Room doorway area. Please indicate on the sheet whether you can drive and how many TOTAL passengers you can handle. It is recommended that drivers meet their passengers at the Fitness Center and leave at 0800 hrs.
Once again, we ask that guys talk to their friends and set up rides. If drivers could let Jim Frater know who is going with them, that would be helpful. You can tell him when he send out the last reminder.
IMPORTANT - DEADLINE is 1500 hrs (3:00 PM) May 17th, one week prior, because Larry needs to inform the Pro up there. So, please, don't put it off, sign up!
RLMGA Play for 2018
(1) On play days any suggestions about formats or improvements for pace of play etc. should be written on the back of the official scorecard to allow consideration by the Tournament Director and/or the MGA Board, if appropriate. (2) For the 2018 season, every third Thursday of the month - from April to September - will be FUN DAY. This will allow MGA members to participate in new and unique events outside of the normal play day type of games. FUN DAYS will be identified on the GHIN on line sign up. (3) For all MGA events in 2018 - play days and Saturday tournaments - there will be a team captain identified in each playing group. The team captain will be responsible for the Pace of Play as well as tokeep the official scorecard (computer generated). In addition, the captain will select one other person in the group to keep a back up scorecard. The back up scorecard will be utilized to verify with the official scorecard each person’s official post able score for the day. This will hopefully alleviate the ongoing errors that the handicap committee continues to find with MGA scoring. (4) For Saturday tournaments, we will be modifying starting hole locations as well as cart staging so that players who are the farthest from the clubhouse will get a head start on getting to their hole. This should help to improve Pace of Play. The deadline for signing up for Saturday tournaments will be 12 PM two days before (Thursday). (5) Finally, the deadline for signing up for play days will be Noonthe day before - Noon Monday for Tuesday play and Noon Wednesday for Thursday play. The pros will be making the pairings by 12:30 and the Tournament Director (TD) will be checking them about 3. They will go on the web after the TD has checked them.
