"Where River Landing Men meet to share a laugh, a beer, and some golf."
I want to thank all our prior year members for signing up for the 2021 season and give a big Welcome to the new members that have joined the RLMGA for this coming year. This past winter has brought an unusual amount of rain and I know everyone is ready to start up the new season with warmer temperatures and sunny skies.
Play starts on March 13th with our first tournament of the year, regular play dates starting the following Tuesday on March 16th. We have six total tournaments scheduled for this year and we are excited to get the season started.
I want to thank my board members for the 2021 season.

The River Landing Men's Golf Association (RLMGA or MGA) was created in 2003 and, as you can see from our slogan above, its sole purpose is to promote golf amongst the men of River Landing. Our season extends from mid-March to mid-November. We also co-sponsor tournaments with our sister organization, the RLGALS (RLGALS.info), the membership of which is open to any River Landing female.
Our dues are $75.00 which includes six Saturday tournaments and lunch afterward, except for our season opener, the Breakfast Shamble, where breakfast is served prior to play. Your dues also go toward prize money for the winners of each tournament.
We typically have two play days per week, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Details are spelled out below. When you move to River Landing, our Pro Shop staff will get you setup in Golf Genius which sends a sign-up call two weeks prior to a play day. You can always sign up by calling the Pro Shop prior to noon the day before a play day. You can learn your tee time for a play day by checking WebRes. The Pros can help you get registered for WebRes. Each time you play, you will be charged $5.00, most of which is paid out in prize money for that play day. Some money is reserved from each play day and is paid out during our biannual Pot of Gold, where all players win something.
On this site you'll be able to find our Handbook and Bylaws (located on the "RLMGA Executive Board" page) as well as our "Roster" of members and "Winnings." The Results for each play day are posted on the "Tournament Director's Page."
We also have pages containing information on the "Pro Shop Staff" and "Cart Staff." See where your money goes on the "Treasurer's Report" page.
We are here to help. If you are new to River Landing you can review the "Executive Board" members and find their contact information on the "Roster" page. Any of us are willing to answer whatever questions you might have.
Randy Weston President, RLMGA
RLMGA Play for 2021
(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 2021 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 2021 - 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 postable 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.
