Men’s Golf Association
The MGA has been a vital part of golf at River Run since the clubs inception. The association each year holds several meetings and golf events during the golf calendar season. The Spring Ryder Cup and Fall Stableford tournaments have always been a highlight in the golf calendar year. The MGA has also been a supporter in our Junior Golf program by providing the juniors with financial assistance and they have also volunteered to help out at events when needed. They have continued to foster goodwill and club friendly gatherings as part of the organizations commitment to growing the game at the club.
The Men's Thursday evening competition is one of the golf Member’s favorites. The league season kicks off on the first Thursday in April and continues play every Thursday thereafter until we run out of daylight in late October. Forty-Eight guys are paired each week in a best ball match play format of partner’s best ball. After the round, fellow competitors gather in the bar for drinks, scoring and hear the results.
Yes, Omega stands for "Old Men Enjoying Golf Association." And that is what they do best. The group has continued to grow, no pun intended, and truly enjoy their time playing at River Run and traveling to other host clubs around the Charlotte area. The series consists of six home and away matches followed by a year-end event. Great fun is had by all.
Ladies' Golf Association
The LGA has been very influential in the organization of our ladie's golf program, ladie's socials and gatherings at the club. We traditionally begin our LGA golf season in March by offering a series of complimentary golf clinics which are held each Wednesday. Starting in April, the LGA begins its formal golf with their play days on Thursdays. They host several golf and social events each year. Their major golf events such as their Member-Member and Member-Guest are always great fun. The ladies Interclub team competes each year against other clubs in the Lake Norman area. If you like the thrill of competition, this format is for you.
Starting in April each year, one of our more popular women’s events takes place weekly. The group is called LEGS (Ladies Evening Golf Social) and they are a group of non-competitive golfers who just enjoy one another’s company both during their 9 holes of golf and afterwards while enjoying a bite to eat and a drink together.
Please call the golf shop for a complete listing of other ladies' events and to coordinate your schedule so you can participate in our ladies' programs.
