Now that you have received your email saying that you have been selected as a lottery winner for an MGA Member Day event, these are some of the next steps to take and what to expect when you arrive.

Securing your spot

Lottery winners will have 48 hours to log-in to your MyMGA portal to pay and complete registration

Tee Times & Host Club Details

All players will receive an email with information regarding your tee time/starting hole as well as all other club details, including food availability, pro shop hours, practice facilities, etc.

Prior to Arrival

The confirmation email will also include information about our new and exciting on-course tournament scoring software. New for 2017; we are utilizing the USGA Tournament Management app as described below.

Arriving at the Golf Course

When you arrive at the course the morning of the event, there will be MGA staff members available to help direct you to your golf carts. You will be able to unload your clubs and proceed to the putting green and/or driving range to warm up. We ask that you please be back at your golf carts at least 15 minutes prior to your starting time to receive instructions on the competition.

During the Round

It is most important to remember to have fun, but please be curious of your fellow-competitors and keep up with the group in front you.

Tournament Management App: While it is not required and all players will still receive official hard copy scorecards on the morning of the tournament, the app will allow you and all other players to watch the live leaderboard from the app throughout. We ask that one person in every foursome download the app to participate with the live scoring features.

After the Round

Once you have completed the round, please proceed to the MGA scoring area to attest scorecard and pass in scores to MGA Staff.

You may then bring your clubs to the car and enjoy the food and beverage options available that date while scoring is complete, feel free to follow along on your phone as well.

Winners in division will be awarded pro shop credit.

If you do win and are not able to stay after the round to collect your prize, it will be mailed to your ASAP.

As always, don't hesitate to contact Rosen at drosen@mgalinks.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you on the links this season.
