Our next tournament will be the Talladega Tiger Pride Charity Golf Tournament. It will be held on Saturday April 13, beginning at 1pm. This is a 3 man scramble and the cost is $70 per player. To enter you can call Jamey Davis at (256) 375-9496 or the clubhouse (256) 268-2920

We have a full field for the Talladega Junior Welfare League Tournament. This will be a shotgun start that begins at 12:30pm. It will require that all 18 hole be free of golfers. To help insure that this will happen, we have changed the starting time for the dogfight from 9am to 8am. After the dogfight goes off there will be no tee times available for the day.

Thanks for your cooperation

We finally wrapped up our 32 player double elimination Members Match Play tournament.

Saturday November 2, MGA year end tournament.

We would like to invite you to join us in our MGA dogfights. The dogfights are a fun game that allows golfers of all skill levels to compete on a fair basis. The dogfight is a formula that allows points for performance. 1pt for a bogie, 2 pts for a par, 3 pts for a birdie and 5 pts for an eagle. 18 holes of par would be 36pts. If a new golfer wants to join and states that he/she normally shoots a round of about 90. To establish a starting point for that person, we would subtract 72 ( which is par for this course) from the stated round of 90. That golfer would begin with 18pts.

As a new golfer you would be frozen at +/- three points for your first three rounds. Your points total would be adjusted after each round. A golfer that starts with 18pts and pulls 20 pts on the first round would then have to pull 19pts the next round.
