The MGA is looking for a few good men. A significant number of the current Board of Directors that have had the privilege of serving you and your organization for the past 4-6 years is going to retire at the end of 2016. We are looking for volunteers to step forward to fill the vacancies. We would like for the volunteers to work with the current board through 2016 so they can become familiar with what we do to deliver the best product possible. On Saturday February 20, 2016 at 4 PM at Hamilton Mill there will be an open MGA board meeting to discuss the state of the MGA, the programs scheduled for 2016 and to evaluate the progress we have made in identifying the nominees for the Board. If you would like to volunteer or nominate an individual please send us an email by going to the MGA website and under Main Menu/Contact Us. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday the 20th.

Several emails have been sent to the MGA membership informing the group that all GHIN handicaps held at Hamilton Mill were de-activated on January 9 2016.  It is each MGA member's responsibility to call the pro shop to have their GHIN number re-activated.  While the process is simple it is not immediate.  In order to have an active handicap for February 1, 2016 you must call the pro shop no later than January 30, 2016.  The MGA Par Point system does a GHIN update on the 1st and 15th of every month.  If you do not have an active GHIN on February 1st your handicap will be zero until it is active in GHIN.

This is a reminder that effective December 1st the MGA will go to preferred lies a.k.a winter rules.  To refresh your memory.....

Preferred Lies / Winter Rules will apply from December 1st until April 30th.  Preferred Lies / Winter Rules apply for all shots played from YOUR OWN FAIRWAY.  Under the most common traditions for Preferred Lies / Winter Rules the player has the option to improve the lie without penalty by moving the ball (lift, clean & place only) within one club length of the original spot no nearer the hole or onto the putting green. The player can only place the ball once and then the ball is "in play". If the ball does not stay on the spot where it was placed, it must be replaced without penalty. If it still won't stay on that spot it must be placed at the nearest spot where it can be placed at rest that is not nearer the hole.  Breach of this Rule is loss of hole in Match Play and two stroke penalty in Stroke Play.
