Each Thursday of the month LMGA features a different match, and the group rotates among the six golf courses at the Landings.
Of interest to all players:
-- Our Members regularly play from the Club, Medal and combo tees, and a number of players walk the course when the weather is favorable. Our registration page gives you the opportunity to designate the tees you want to play and whether you plan to walk for each week's match;
-- With respect to handicaps, we have Members with handicaps below 10 (lucky them!) and Members with handicaps of 20+. Most Members fall somewhere in between;
-- How competitive is LMGA? It's friendly competition based more on comradery and enjoying the game. Club House based team events for the Bouchillon-Ambrose Cup are about bragging rights and the championship team picture on the web site. Most games involve 4-man teams competing against each other. Some games will group lower handicap players in one flight and higher handicap players in another flight. Others will incorporate a mixed team from all skill levels. Yes, if your putt will impact the outcome of the match or game, you’ll probably need to putt it out unless your opponents concede it. ( And yes, we all miss our share of 3-footers—or less—so don’t worry about it);
-- Finally, our priorities can be summed up as “Fun & Fellowship”; to have fun; to meet new people; to play well (or not); and when it’s over, to share a complimentary beer or soda with friends.
Golf Shop Credits, Player of the Year Points & Skins Games
Cost for Thursday play is $5 per player. This is paid out in full every week in Pro Shop credits, which are posted to the winners' accounts about 30 days following the end of each month.
An additional Skins game is may be held (depending on the game of the week) for an entry feeof $5 cash, paid out after the match.
Points towards the annual player of the year competition are awarded in a couple of different ways. For any Thursday play, we award 25 points for playing. In 4-man team competitions we typically award points for 75 points for first, 50 for second and 25 for third place in each flight. In individual or two-man team matches, we award 50 points to the winning player(s) (25 to all player in case of a tie).
Monthly Bouchillon-Ambrose Cup Events- our own Ryder Cup!
On the third Thursday of the month, between January and October, we hold our team-based B-A Cup matches. The format varies in a nine-month round robin tournament culminating in the three-day B-A Cup Championship in October. Similar to the Ryder Cup format, our matches include 4-ball (two-man best ball), modified alternate shot and individual match play. As an added bonus, each B-A Cup round is followed by a cook-out with the usual beer and soda.
B-A Cup Events are sponsored by Kelly Bouchillon & Eddie Ambrose, Soundview Wealth Advisors
