"Where River Landing Men meet to share a laugh, a beer, and some golf."
DID YOU KNOW?
Connie Teetz was victim of the Pickle Ball craze. He let his body get ahead of his feet a few weeks ago and is wearing a cast to show he made a treaty effort. He expects to be back on the course in July.
The Votes are IN: We have the May 26 (Thursday) road trip planned to The Vineyards at White Lake. It will likely be a shotgun start and we are trying to make it as late as they will allow...we are shooting for 10:00 but will more likely get a 9:15-9:30 Shotgun Start. Sign up sheet is in the pro shop.
Mike Masinick had a personal best for 9 holes on Saturday during Member-Member with a 35 on the front nine of The Landing. He birdied # 3, #4 (from the fairway), and # 6. It was the first time he had shot under par for a nine hole stretch. Great Play Mike!!!!
The Next Golf Clinic is June 1st (10:00- 11:30). Sign Up Sheets in the Men's Locker Room Hallway Bulletin Board.
We had our first Road Trip to Duplin Country Club on April 21st. We had 45 players attend and all had a good time and enjoyed the meal afterwards. Many of those attending indicated they would consider returning in the future. Planning is underway for the next road trip and an informal poll was taken as to the next destination. Two top choices were Bear Trail and Cutter Creek.
PROVISIONAL BALL WHEN PLAYING OVER A WATER HAZARD
If a player attempts to hit a ball over a water hazard and is unable to determine from the hitting ground if the ball has cleared the hazard, the player may play a provisional ball either by:
1. Playing the provisional ball from the point where it was last played, or playing it from any point along the line determined by the flag and the point of entry into the hazardand replaying the shot, or
2. Re-teeing a ball if the original ball was played from the teeing ground
If the player finds the original ball, the player can play it as it lies without penalty. If the player cannot find the original ball after a reasonable search period, the player will put the provisional ball into play with a one stroke penalty added to the score for that hole.
This rule will apply to the following holes on River Landing courses:
#4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 18
#3, 6, 8, 12

Info to Know
RLMGA Play for 2016
(1) On play days there will be a suggestion box placed in the clubhouse near where play-day event scores are to be posted. The suggestion box will allow members to make comments about that day’s play which will be taken into consideration by the Ltd’s and the MGA board (if appropriate). (2) For the 2016 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 2016 - 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 1PM the day before (Friday). (5) Finally, the deadline for signing up for play days will be at 2PM the day before - 2PM Monday for Tuesday play and 2PM Wednesday for Thursday play.
