LGA

The Marshall Country Club Ladies Golf Association (LGA) was established to promote women’s golf at MCC and to sponsor several special events for the ladies here at the Club.  We have two meetings each year. The Spring Meeting is typically on the Ladies Opening Day (May 3, 2017), and the Fall Meeting is on the last Ladies Day of the season (October 4, 2017).  At the Fall Meeting we honor those ladies who have won various events sponsored by the LGA, elect officers, discuss changes, and appropriate funds.  Annual dues are $20.  LGA members are invited to participate in the following MCC Ladies events:
 
            Ladies Day events                                       Birdie, Eagle, Par Trees     
            Ringer Board                                                Inter Clubs
            The Memorial                                               Tri City
            Member-Guest Invitational                           Central Districts
            Ladies Handicap Tournament                       WWMGA
            Club Championship
 
Wednesday is Ladies Day which typically starts with a morning shotgun.  Create your own golfing group or just arrive at the Club and the Hostess of the Day will make sure you have someone with whom to tee it up.  Each Wednesday there will be a special scoring event with a $5 fee which is paid in the Pro Shop prior to play.  If you wish to play in the game of the day, register in the Pro Shop.  There is also a Wednesday “chip in pot.”  The Pro Shop will collect $1 from each Ladies Day participant.  Anyone who chips in from off the green (includes putts from the fringe) will split the money for that day.  If there are no chip-ins, the money will carry forward. There is also a “Closest to the Pin” event on #11 which is $1.
