Tee times for those playing can be found via the Tee Sheet on Golf Genius. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the first tee starting at 6:30 AM.

2-Man Match Play Bracket

Below is the 2-Man Match Play bracket. A few reminders as we start this year-long tournament.

  1. You, as players, are responsible for setting up all tee times. There is NO opening weekend play for the 2-man match play this year. Please try your absolute best to schedule these as fast as possible.
  2. We have 74 players (37 teams!!!). It is the largest opening bracket we have had that I can remember. As such, there are a handful of round 1 matches or play-in-matches or the-computer-picked-you-sorry matches.
  3. When you matches are complete, you need to e-mail me so I can update the bracket. The dates on the bracket are when we would like those rounds completed prior to, get the first rounds in ASAP please.

If you believe you see any errors with pairings, you are missing, etc. please let me know ASAP.

Updated Course Handicap

As we get prepared to enter our first week of league the board thought it was important to remind all players of a few items. We also wanted to share news about the 18th hole.

Member Tees

For all league events, WNL and Weekend Tournaments, we use the Member Tee Shortened. This consists of a combo of Blue and White tees. Here is your list to remind yourself:

Front: #1 (Blue), #2 (Blue), #3 (White), #4 (Blue), #5 (Blue), #6 (Blue), #7 (White), #8 (White), #9 (Blue)

Back: #10 (White), #11 (Blue), #12 (White), #13 (Blue), #14 (White), #15 (Blue), #16 (White), #17 (Blue), #18 (White)

18th Hole

If you have not had a chance to play at Brookview this year you will discover a new White Tee box. This is set approximately 40 yards back from the previous tee box. With that, it means we have a new slope and rating for 2020. Below is the new course measurements and member tee handicap breakdown.

I would aim a little more to the right when teeing off from #18 now. Carrying the trees is a little more difficult.

Find all course handicap breakdowns via the MGA.

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!
