MOGA Membership: New to the area or just looking for a great way to spend time on the course and meet some new friends? 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 is available on our website at www.mogagolf.org.

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.

Hole-in-One: Congratulations to Mark Heth for his hole-in-one on #4 of the Palms course during the Home and Home with Cottonwood event on April 12.

May saw things slowing down a bit. We started with Beat the Pro 2. This time, we competed against Kevin who did not have a good day and shot an 80. Sixty-four players beat the Pro that day. The next event was Low Gross/Low Net, followed by Match play, pitting everyone’s skills against their peers. The last two events were ABCD tournaments. First a Shamble followed a Mixed Tournament where the teams scores one low net on holes 1-6, one low gross on holes 7- 12 and one net and one gross on holes 13-18.

Upcoming schedule for June MOGA games:

June 7 – Best Ball by Flight

June 14 – ABCD Rainbow

June 21 – Individual Low Net

June 28 – ABCD Cha, Cha, Cha

July 5 – Foursome Low Gross

The events are now on the 7:30 a.m. and noon schedule for the summer. The afternoon shotgun could possibly change to 10:00 a.m. to help avoid the hottest part of the day. It will depend on how the morning group finishes during the early weeks of the summer.

Volunteers Needed: We are looking for volunteers to help in the upcoming 2018/2019 season. We could use extra help to lighten the workload for our committees and officers.

Shirts and Hats: MOGA has a number of shirts and hats for sale. If interested, please contact Craig Annis at 480-940-0902 or [email protected] He will be selling them before MOGA play at the Oakwood Pro Shop on Thursdays while supplies last. Shirts are $25, hats $10.

We have two MOGA items for sale if you are interested. – a MOGA shirt and a MOGA hat. The shirt is one of the most comfortable shirts I have worn for golf. The cost is $25 (there is no markup on this cost). Sizes available are S/M/L/XL. Additionally, the buttons on this shirt are snaps, so there are no buttonholes, which makes it easy to button for anyone who may have some arthritis issues.

The hat is a stretch hat that really looks good. Have received many compliments on it. The cost is $10 The sizes are S/M and L/XL (it’s a stretch hat). If you wear an XXL, this hat will not fit you. So if you have a really big noggin, this hat may not work for you.

To purchase either or both of these items, please contact Craig Annis at [email protected] or call him at 480-940-0902. Craig will bring your shirt/hat on Thursday and accepts cash or check.
