MGA – Feb. 2021

January started out with some usually good winter golf days at the club especially the week leading up to the MLK Holiday weekend. As I write this article the last week of January it is snowing hard outside bringing much needed water to our reservoirs that can hopefully keep our fairways green this coming summer. January also brought Monte Hanson to Bend and to his new job at our club. Monte did not take long to review our planned 2021 Tournament Schedule with Moff and produced a 2021 Golf Events Schedule. Here are the highlights of the golf schedule for the men:

  • April 10: MGA Masters Event
  • April 26-27: Spring Aerification
  • May 8: ABCD Men’s and Ladies Blind Draw
  • May 22: Men’s Guest Day
  • May 31: Memorial Day Member Tournament
  • June 3: Men’s Match Play begins
  • June 24-26: Men’s Member Guest
  • July 4: Firecracker Open
  • July 17: 27 Hole Championships (replaces Chapman Member/Member)
  • July 31-August 1: Mirror Pond Invitational
  • August 19, 21-22: Club Championship
  • September 6: Labor Day Member Tournament
  • September 13-14: Fall Maintenance
  • September 23 & 25: Winchester Member/Member
  • October 7: Moff’s Madness

Larry Patterson is our club’s handicap chairman and Larry met with the MGA board at our January 20 board meeting to discuss the BGC Handicap Committee plans for 2021. The handicap committee will restart the monitoring of posted scores and players on the tee sheet not posting their scores. The committee will also evaluate player performance during golf events and compare with regular daily play. Two MGA Board Members, Jim Noel and Tom Pfeiffer, have volunteered to serve on the handicap committee for 2021.

Have a safe winter and hopefully we can all play on our beautiful golf course soon.

Bill Ross
MGA President
