Players may play from Blue, White, Hybrids, Gold, or Green (age 80 and up).    Designation can be changed every quarter (Jan 1, Apr 1, July 1, Oct 1).  Please send an email to jdstrand.00@gmail.com prior to the start of a quarter to request a change to your default Tee.

 

Posting Your Scores to GHIN

Golf Genius will automatically post all LCMGA scores to GHIN.  If you play rounds outside of the LCMGA, you will need to post your own scores.  Additionally, you will need to post your adjusted score, not necessarily your total scores.
