Winning it at your home course makes it even better.
Weather Forces Postponement Of Senior Championship
Due to upcoming weather and course conditions we have postponed the RGA Senior/Super Senior Championship to July 25-26 with a 1 o’clock shotgun both days. The next two days would have been Cart Path Only which is very difficult for many players in our field to do with the hills and long walks at Royal New Kent.
We apologize to anyone that was excited and ready to play tomorrow but between the Royal New Kent staff and the RGA Board, we felt this was the best decision for the event.
Loving, Jr./Dougherty Squeak By At Broach
RGA President Larry Loving, Jr. teamed with reigning RGA Mid Am champion Ted Dougherty to win this year's Nelson Broach Memorial at Royal Virginian GC.
Schedule Set for 2016 Season
The 2016 RGA Championship schedule is set and can be seen at right. There are some great venues this season and we're looking forward to another great year of competition.
There is one new event on the schedule this year, the Petersburg Cup at the Country Club of Petersburg. The format is similar to the Jefferson Lakeside Invitational, except that the four person team from each club will play as two four ball teams.There will be no Senior Division for this event, but Seniors are invited to play and will be able to play forward tees.
Also, the Broach Memorial format has changed this year. We will play 27 holes in one day, using three nine hole fomats; best ball, modified alternate shot and captain's choice.
Lastly, the RGA welcomes Rubin Unowitz to the RGA Board as Secretary this year. Rubin has been a fixture at RGA events over the past hundred years or so (kidding...sort of) and has a great understanding of how our events are run. We're a little surprised he hasn't been asked to serve before now, but in any case, welcome Rubin!
