Wayne Karp, Men’s Oakwood Golf Association

Coming in 2020, the golf world will have one international handicap system. The World Handicap System will go into effect in 2020. It will make all handicaps around the world on the same level. Golf Genius, the software we use for events, has created a white paper to explain the rationale and the changes that will be put in place. The link is on the MOGA website under the MOGA menu. More information will be forthcoming as we approach the end of this year.

Your MOGA Board is looking for someone to take over the publicity chair position. This is a key position in MOGA. What you read in the Sun Lakes Splash is prepared and written by the publicity chairman. This is important newsprint for us, as it tells the community what we are doing and for new homeowners, it tells them what is available in our community. The job requires use of MS Word or similar product and some writing skills. The person will create the monthly Splash article and submit the information monthly for publication.

The role requires a monthly input to the Sun Lakes Splash as well as taking pictures of special events, like our MOGA Champion and President’s Cup Champion. The approximate time commitment is three to four hours a month. If you are interested in this position, please contact Dan Bogaard, MOGA President, at [email protected] or Wayne Karp at [email protected]

Wayne is also looking for someone to assist with membership while he is gone during our enrollment period for 2020. Contact him at [email protected]
