A couple of items that are on the forefront...
First, the Broach Memorial is coming up fast, April 25-26. Grab a partner and join us for this unique format, on one of the best conditioned courses the area has to offer.
Second, we have had numerous conflicts getting good dates for this year's Junior Championship. We have settled on July 14th and 15th, which should be a good fit for Richmond-area junior players. Hope to see you in July!
AJGA Coming to The Foundry
The American Junior Golf Association is making a stop at The Foundry Golf Club in Powhatan. The event is scheduled for April 25 -- 27 and is open to Boys and Girls ages 12-18. It is a 36 hole stroke play event. To apply, visit this link.
Also, this is a CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS for the event. You can download information about volunteering HERE. This flyer will include contact information for signing up. Please, think about helping out the Juniors and The Foundry and volunteer some time.
RGA Player of the Year
This is an idea that has been kicked around for years by numerous RGA Boards. This is the year we implement it.
We have decided to award Player of the Year in Regular and Senior catagories. Points will not cross categories. In addition to the normal RGA events, we have added the Lakeside Invitational as a points event, and will also award points for Senior and Regular club champions at RGA clubs. We are also working on a new event, a Tournament of Champions, comprised of RGA club champions. These will count in the points race as well. More on this event later.
