CURRENT NEWS ITEMS:
A. INAUGURAL WEEKLY "SHOWDOWN" TOURNAMENT A BIG SUCCESS!
The first weekly Showdown Tournament was held on Friday, January 29. Although not an "official" MGA event, the MGA supports and actively participates in this event that is administered and controlled by the pro shop. In the first tournament, Charlie Burns and Bill Myers took low net with a score of 61. Fifteen players participated in the "shoot out" ninth hole, one-birdie-only-wins tournament. Nobody could muster a singular birdie, so the pot increases next time. Brandon Mabry, assistant pro and chief of the tournament announced the ruling that the pot would be allowed to grow in size to $500, at which time it would be dispersed to any and all birdies on the ninth hole.
Players interested in participating in this weekly tournament (every Friday except for MGA scheduled tournaments) with shotgun start at 11:00 a.m. should contact the pro shop for sign-up.
B. INAUGURAL MGA SCRAMBLE SETS RECORD ATTENDANCE LEVEL
A total of 60 hardy MGA members gathered for the first tournament of the year, the annual ABCD Scramble. In spite of the very chilly air and the rather breezy setting, all 15 four man teams managed to complete the round without too much trouble. Below, Director of Golf Operations Matt Reams addresses the player field.
The winning net score of 64 was achieved by the foursome of Kenne Woods, Tom Eyres, Don O'Brien and Tomas Railsback (shown in the photo below). There were several scorecard playoffs among the four winning teams. Complete results, including closest to the pin contests, will be posted shortly on the 2016 Tournament tab (above, left).
