Welcome to the New Year--from Your ASGA President

Is winter really over?
Can you believe it is already February?  The holidays and even your broken New Year's resolutions are a distant memory already.

2024 marks ASGA's 50th anniversary!  

Just a quick stroll down memory lane to 1974:

  • City of Austin greens fees were raised to $3.25
  • The interstate speed limit was set at 55 mph to conserve gas
  • Richard Nixon resigned
  • The average home price was $38,000
  • Blazing Saddles was the top-grossing movie
  • The Rubik's Cube was invented
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers won Super Bowl IX
  • I was a college sophomore trying to look cool with my Afro, bells, and platforms. (photos not available)
But most importantly, our founding fathers would surely be proud of how their traditions have been carried on. With over 200 active members, we continue to be an active, lively organization ready for its next 50!

Mark Your Calendars

Our Spring Championship is still a ways off, but I wanted to remind everyone that it will be played on April 23rd & 25th....Tuesday and Thursday of that week.  It's the only time we'll be playing on a day other than Tuesday, so be aware.

Speedy Play Tip

It's not the big things, it's the little things. If each player in your foursome could save 10 seconds per shot, your round would be 35 minutes faster!! And that's not counting putts! Going forward, we will be regularly providing tips and tricks to get you that 10 seconds!

Joke of the day

"You're late on the tee, John."
"Yes, well being a Sunday, I had to toss a coin to see if I should go to church or go play golf."
"OK...but why are you late?"
" I had to toss it  15 times!!"

That's it for now.  Be well.....and see ya in the short grass......Greg
