"Where River Landing Men meet to share a laugh, a beer, and some golf."
It's June 15, 2020 and as I write this it is pouring. Rain is expected tomorrow and Wednesday. June 16 Play Day has been canceled. Speaking of rain, according to my records, we have canceled seven (7) Play Days due to rain. What a spring! I knew it rained here a lot but this is the wettest since I've been here. We have a new pond in the vacant lot next to us!
We have gotten some golf in, though. There have been eight (8) eagles reported bu Brian Keeney, Bill eterson, Jim Harless(3), George Maggio, Jim Frater, and Skip Romanet. Unfortunately no aces have been reported, but with the inverted cups it easy to understand why. Actually, I witnessed Billy Peterson almost get one, but it bounced out. We can only believe with all our hearts it would have gone in with normal cups.
From this vantage point, I believe we will have normal food service for our July 11 Summer Classic tournament. Because the Battle of the Sexes (BOS) meal was so well reeceived, I'm considering having the July 11th meal be Chef's Choice. If you played in the BOS, you know what I mean about the meal. If we do Chef's Choice, we likely won't get an idea of the menu until very close to the tournament date. I believe we can get "more bang for buck" doing it this way. Jeff Hale did it that way for the BOS and it worked out great!
Stay safe and be well.
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.
Jim Frater President, RLMGA
RLMGA Play for 2019
(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 2019 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 2019 - 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.
