the registration process and the sign-ups for the Night Golf Event before the 6:30 PM meeting start.

previous years. We take your suggestions and comments into consideration when planning Club events,
so we hope that you will find our line-up of events for this year worthy of your participation!

Club Meetings meet from September to APRIL??

Club Membership has increased dramatically over the past few years and we THANK YOU for your support of
our efforts and for helping to "spread the word" about the Club. Will you continue to do so
by encouraging your Massachusetts friends who are not now members to join and be a part of our
