We are currently putting together the 2020 schedule thanks to Larry Fleischer and Monty Ross. We will be having more tournaments on Thursdays instead of Wednesdays which should help member participation. This includes two tournaments at Cinnabar one in April and one in August. More to come in the next couple of months on our schedule for 2020.

All of us are NCGA members but did you know the following golf courses offer NCGA member special pricing, available every day. The discounts are a little different at each course, so when you&339;re ready to go, call the pro shop and ask for the NCGA member rate.
