SMGA Prepares for an Exciting New Year

Mark Miller

You may already know that golfing on a regular basis can help provide a healthy mind and a healthy body. Experts believe golf can extend your life by offering exercise, as well as socialization. Golf exercises your heart naturally, lowering your risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular issues, as well as potentially lowering your levels of “bad” cholesterol. Physical activity is a proven treatment for anxiety and depression.

This is your invitation to join the SaddleBrooke Men’s Golf Association (SMGA), an organization of fellow golfers who love the game. And while some may take it more seriously than others, there is no doubt that fellowship and laughter are terrific ways to relax and enjoy life in this beautiful setting we call home.

If you are not yet a member of the SMGA, won’t you consider joining? Membership opens Nov. 1 for the 2023-24 year. Significant volunteer energy is invested in the weekly events or in the major tournaments. The more events you participate in, the more enjoyment you will receive in return for your membership, not to mention the occasional opportunity for financial success.

The Lexus Cup!

Now something new and exciting for our current members, as well as those considering joining as a new member—this season introduces the Lexus Cup, based similarly on the FedEx Cup of the PGA. Starting Nov. 1, 2023, through April 2024, all SMGA events will be assigned a point value. For example, five points just for participation, with a higher point value for finishing in the money (net and gross). The top 30 players at the end of April will participate in a one-day playoff to determine the Lexus Cup winners.

If you have any questions concerning the SMGA or how to enjoy the golf experience here in SaddleBrooke One, please feel free to contact Mark Miller, vice president, at [email protected].
