The resumption of league play in June was a welcome relief to all of the Men’s Oakwood Golf Association (MOGA) members. Dan Muth has done a great job of adapting the weekly events to tee times in place of the normal shotgun starts to comply with the social distancing requirements. Participation has increased with the large number of our members who have postponed their trips for the summer. Dan also increased the tournament payouts and the number of free beverage days to make up for our missed play in the spring. The June and July events have provided many opportunities to get out and have fun and meet some great people during these difficult times. If you haven’t had a chance yet, come join us in August.
Upcoming schedule for August MOGA games:
Aug. 6 – ABCD Step Aside Scramble – 7 a.m. start/9 a.m. start
Aug. 13 – Best Ball by Flight – 7 a.m. start/9 a.m. start
Aug. 20 – ABCD 3 Club Monte – 7 a.m. start/9 a.m. start
Aug. 27 – Individual Low net by Flight – 7 a.m. start/9 a.m. start
Game descriptions are on the Men’s Oakwood Golf Association (MOGA) website, www.mogagolf.org, and results of each week’s event are posted on the website.
