Welcome to the new BMGA.ORG

We are always trying to make things better. So today we take off the wraps of a new BMGA website. There are a few things we wanted to make sure you were aware of.

#1 – Player Dashboard. Looking for stats, want to register for the next tournament. Use the Player Dashboard for all of your needs. Want to learn more, than make sure to check out the help page.

#2 – Message Board. It’s better than ever! Plus all of the old content is there. Want to see what everyone is chatting about. Want to talk smack about an opponent before match play? The message board is waiting for you. Not familiar with how they work. Check out the help page for more details.

#3 – Leave Comments. Did you know you can leave comments on posts, like this one? You can now tag people – just like you do on Facebook or Twitter. Make sure to check out the help page for more.

#4 – Always be secure! The new BMGA website comes with full SSL. Don’t know what that means? Don’t worry. It just means you are safer than ever before.

This is just the tip of the iceberg and much more is coming. So stay tuned!

Senior Metro Team drops one.

Our Senior metro team took an L last Friday in a 5-19 final.

For the second week in a row, our A player had to take on the medalist.
This time it was Steve Slivken (net 70) that was lucky to get 2 from the low man in the league.
Steve Shellenbaum put his net 70 up against a net 68 and was only able to grab 1 point.
Tom Bredesen got smoked by a net 68.
Randy Zejdlik was able to get 2 points.

The result is that we dropped in the standings, but the league is very tight right now and we are definitely in the mix.

CANCELLED – Individual Match Play Saturday, May 18th

In consult with our Board and Ben Disch, Brookview Club Manager, we have decided to CANCEL tomorrow’s Individual Match Play’s first  matches due to poor weather conditions in the forecast and probably poor course conditions.  All tee times have been cancelled.  We will not have a makeup Saturday to conduct the first round matches.  Each individual should communicate with their opponent to schedule their first round match.    You can find your opponent on the bracket sheet link, Single Man Match Bracket (revision 3) to schedule your match.  If you need their contact info please go to the Player Dashboard on the BMGA website and click members.  All chit moneys for Saturday’s contests will be rolled into the total payout for the tournament.  Each participant will have a rain check for the first round match in the pro shop.  So when checking in for your match just mention it is your first round match and your rain check will be used.  Let’s try to get these first round matches in by June 8th.

Sr. Metro Team off to a fast start!

On Friday May 3rd, the 2019 version of the Brookview Sr. Metro team headed to Keller to take on Chomonix.

On this day, the foursome was Tom Hanson, Roger Hamm, Dan Olson, Richard Courtney.

Keller’s greens were very fast, but did not deter our bravest.

  • Tom leads the entire league and earns medalist honors, as he posts an outstanding 74 (net 68) to win the front, back and total for a 6-0 win.
  • Not to be outdone, Dan Olson shoots an 88 (net 70) and he also blanks his opponent 6-0.
  • Richard Courtney, seeing all this fires a net 74 and he also wins 6-0
  • Roger Hamm (net 74) found a way to get one point on the front nine with a tie, but lost the back 9 and total on the 18th

So Brookview jumps to a 19 – 5 win and is tied for the lead in the league! MSrs_Wkly_Standings_Form_v3, Keller, May 3, 2019
