LAMGA By David Kubissa The 2023 LAMGA season rolled seamlessly from January into February with weekly games, such as the ever-popular “Beat the Board” on Feb. 8. This is a four-player competition of two best nets where teams try to beat a contingent from the LAMGA board of directors. The LAMGA team finished at 18 under par, but that wasn’t good enough to beat two teams of challengers. The winners at 20 under were: Mike Renaud, Tom Murphy, Bob Dupuis and Darrell Reid. Runners-up at 19 under: Mark McDuff, Jim Salb, Tom Schoendorf and Ed Hansen. Each of the eight winning players earned $15 in Pro Shop credits. In other league news, the numbers are in from the January scorecard for the Red Hoagland Hyundai Challenge, a competition that tracks the weekly winnings of LAMGA league players. The top four leaders at the end of the season earn pro shop credits courtesy of Red Hoagland Hyundai. By the end of January, the leaders and their winnings were: Darrell Reid, $41.60; Dan Baun, $35.35; Steve Kettells, $33; Pat O’Neil, $32. Meanwhile, the countdown to the annual MemberGuest Tournament continued with enrollment filling out the 60-team lineup scheduled to tee it up from March 9-11. Sponsorships have been coming in as the board prepares for the games and festivities surrounding this popular tournament. Among those businesses taking a major role in supporting the Member-Guest are: Chris Bruser, reverse mortgage specialist with Mutual of Omaha; Snow Bird Heating & Cooling; Art’s Golf Cars; Amerity Financial (Burris Warner); Red Hoagland Hyundai; and Palmetto Solar. One of the sponsor highlights for this year’s tournament will be an extensive array of golf merchandise offered by Huston Cadillac, GMC and Buick. Huston also will be sponsoring a special holein-one prize. To learn about other sponsors, check out the LAMGA website, Lake Ashton Living and Talk of Lake Ashton. Please remember to keep all these sponsoring businesses top of mind when shopping for services and products in our community. LA NINERS By Marti Schmidt LA Niners and BlueMan Ringer tournament on January 24 and 25 was super fun two-day event with lunch served on Wednesday. There was a great turnout this year and some amazing players. Looking forward to planning an encore in July. While winter season is still in swing, our goal is to have 14 foursomes so we can play the ENTIRE course on Tuesdays. That’s about half our membership — help us make it happen! Golf Etiquette: Pace-of-Play and Ready Golf. After holing your ball, please return to your cart and proceed to the next tee box. THEN record your score. This keeps the course clear and allows for the team behind you continue play. Also, be thinking about what club/s you need for your next shot while driving to your ball. Every little bit helps to keep teams moving on the course and eliminating wait times. Looking for a Treasurer to start the summer season – any takers? Still have questions? Ready to join?
