Jim Frater has recently gone on a scoring and winning rampage...enough to raise some real questions. Is this simply a changing of the guard or something happening to juice up the ole' boy? Jim will be reporting for a little test real soon. We need to get to the bottom of this scoring and the answer may be in a test tube!
Belly up Big Boy!!!!
Oh and Zupko...get ready..you are next in line
Things to Know
Board minutes of July 16 are now posted for your reading pleasure
New Friends and Neighbors:
John Weston and Bill Walters are good guys and gentlemen you need to take time to say "hi" and get to know. Bill recently had his first ever sub-100 round and his neighbor is quickly making a reputation as just a great guy.
Old Friends and New Neighbors:
Will Vertolli is in the building process at River Landing and is happy to be back with old buddy Dennis Gasparini...friends for some 26 years. Will golfs from the wrong side of the ball but his game is coming after some 35 years of very little golfing.
Meet Wayne Weller
Wayne is not entirely new to River Landing having been a home owner on Maple Creek for years but has recently retired and now calls River Landing home and The MGA one of his main contacts with golf. He made his mark Saturday on this Closest to Pin shot on #8 of the Landing.
Mike Masinick racked up his THIRD all time Hole in One while playing in Coastal Seniors at Thistle on July 7. The ACE came from 150 yards and was witnessed by Coastal Senior playing partners, one of whom had never seen a hole in one and it made his day as well as Mike's. Mikee has been playing great since retiring from the MGA Board and is carrying an 8 handicap.
The MGA is at it Again!

Woman gets on a bus with her baby and the driver says, "Oh my gosh. That is the ugliest baby I've ever seen." She storms to the back of the bus obviously very upset and sits down next to a man who says, "You look really angry." "Yes," she replied, "the bus driver really insulted me. I feel like giving him a piece of my mind." The kind man said, "You should do that. Here, I will hold your monkey for you."
