August MOGA calendar

 

Wayne Karp

July was very warm, but that didn’t stop a lot of our year-round resident members from enjoying a round of golf each Thursday. The course has been undergoing some long-overdue turf work that was neglected over the years. We ask all our members to be patient as the golf staff does its job. The conditions of the course are not exceptional but WILL get much better once the effects of this much-needed turf maintenance is completed. Hang in there, folks. Overseeding will begin October 15.

Upcoming schedule for August AM MOGA games (game descriptions are on the MOGA website):

August 2 – ABCD 1, 3, 2

August 9 – ABCD Rainbow

August 16 – ABCD Shamble

August 23 – 3 Club Monte

August 30 – ABCD Scramble

September 6 – Chapman

Note: Afternoon games will be individual games.

Are you new to the area or just looking for a great way to spend time on the Oakwood courses? You don’t have to be a resident of IronOaks to join our group. We have over 350 members with golfers at every level. MOGA has an event each Thursday throughout the year. Why not join MOGA and meet some new friends while playing a variety of team and individual games each week? Membership application and more information are available on our website at www.mogagolf.org. MOGA has an event each Thursday throughout the year.

MOGA is allowing its members with handicaps of 26 and higher to play from the yellow or silver tees. Contact Dan Muth if you would like to move it forward.

Volunteers Needed: We are looking for volunteers to help in the upcoming 2018/2019 season to help lighten the workload for our committees and officers. If you have a few hours each month to help make our organization function, please contact Doug Braun at 480-215-0970 or [email protected] or Dan Bogaard at 641-780-2666 or [email protected] Without our volunteers, there is no organization. Thanks to all those who currently give their time!

MOGA Shirts and Hats: We have a number of MOGA shirts and hats for sale. These are sold at cost to you, and I think they are a very good deal. The shirt sizes that are remaining are 4 Small, 6 Medium, 12 Large and 28 X-Large

If you want to procure a shirt or a hat, please contact Craig Annis at [email protected] or call him at 480-255-5622. See you on the course…
