Berkeley Hills Senior Men’s Golf Association

 

The Berkeley Senior Men’s Golf Association is a golfing organization within the Berkeley Hills Country Club open to all male members age 50 and older.  Starting in 2015, a group of Berkeley Seniors formed a Board to manage a number of senior activities and look for ways to enhance the golfing opportunities for our senior members.  We have representation on the Berkeley Board, Berkeley Golf Committee, the North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association, Senior Tournament Director, Berkeley Senior Match Play Team Captain, Treasurer to manage the Senior Fund, Webmaster to manage the BSMGA Website and other staff to assist and advise.

 

Tournaments:

BSMGA organizes golf tournaments at Berkeley and represents Berkeley in the North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association (NASMGA).  There are 17 participating country club in NASMGA (see their website at nasmga.com).  During the golfing calendar (8 months), eight of the clubs will host a golf tournament at their club.  A portion of the BSMGA annual dues includes membership in the North Atlanta Senor Men’s Golf Association.  One of the assets of NASMGA is that all interclub and match play competitions are managed through their website.

 

Match Play:

 

One of the favorite activities of the Berkeley Senior Men’s Golf Association is participation in the North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association Match Play Program.  Berkeley Seniors have done well in this competition including playing for the Championship in 2020 against Fairways of Canton CC and coming in 2nd.  The NASMGA schedule of for Match Play will be available on their website following the meeting of Match Play Captains in January, 2022  Barry Lakas and Ed Odmark are Co-Captains.  They will send out the schedule and ask current members to reconfirm their participation for 2022.  New members need to check off the Match Play question on the 2022 Registration Form available in the Berkeley Pro Shop.  Any Questions may be directed to Barry Lakas at brlakas@aol.com.

 

Social Events:

 

On several occasions during the year, the BSMGA will organize an evening event at the club where members and their wives or significant others are invited. 

 

Buddies Trips:

Each year the BSMGA will organize a buddy’s trip to clubs within driving distance to experience other venues and throw in a little competition.  Past trips included The Sunset Country Club in Moultrie, Southern Hills Country Club in Hawkinsville, Idle Hour Country Club in Macon, Robert Trent Jones Trail in Alabama, and other fine clubs.
