Notice from the Lakewood Golf Course Management
If any group of golfers has an issue with another group on the course please call the Pro-Shop 562-421-0550 ext. 1. We will be more than happy to address the issue while the golfers are on the course. Letting us know in a timely manner will enable us to address the issue while the golfers are still on the course.
 

Welcome to the website that provides information to our members regarding the LMGC tournaments for 2019

Keep it simple:   

  • Sign up and pay promptly.
  • When signing up, use the comments section for preferences, if you have any.  Once you coordinate with your friends, YOU may sign up other members online to create your groups.  Coordination prior to signing up is key, so be sure to check with your fellow group members in advance.
  • Please respond as needed to any emails or blasts from board members.
  • Be sure to double-check your tee times since changes occur all the time.
  • Observe the adopt-a-hole scheme to improve conditions for all.
  • Play ready golf and keep up with the group in front of you.
  • Unless told otherwise, do not post since the tournament committee posts the scores.

LMGC Tournament Director

 *(May) Club Championship specifics are annouced in late March, 6 to 8 weeks before the tourney Date.  Generally speaking the event will open for web sign ups five weeks before the event start date.

**(September) Mem-Guest is announced 6 to 8 weeks before the tourney Date.


Fellow Members of the Wood: How to and 
Rules to sign up for an LMGC Event

Tournaments release to the web site about 5 weeks prior to the actual event. The table, above, shows the tournament date, web release date, 1st tee time and sunrise. A brief description of the tournament is found on the right-most column. You can sign up online by clicking on the sign up button for the tournament on our web site. You might pay when you sign up, or pay later. If you sign up 4 or more you must pay for half the total of players by Wednesday following the sign up, either by CC on the website or sending a check, made payable to Lakewood Men’s Golf Club.  Mail to Dan Wamba, 4525 Deeboyar Ave, Lakewood, CA. 90712. If the online sign up link is not there it means that the tournament is full and to pay using CC you will need to go to your Players page, click on the 'select a player' drop down box and find your name. Click on show profile and in the middle of the page is a link to pay (see graphic below). Just follow the directions given there. Until there is an increase in cost, tournaments are $69 by credit card on our website or $66 by check.  Exceptions are the 2 tournaments that have an extra $5 payment to support Junior Golf in March and our Memorial in August: $74 CC and $71 check.  Another two exceptions are Club Championship and Member-Guest which also have different sign up amounts. Check for these other tournament costs on the web page or in email blasts sent to clarify things a few months before those events.

Swing Smoothly,
Dan Wamba, LMGC Tournament Chairman
 Deadline for tournament payment:
Is it not possible to make your payment within the first five working days from when you and your friends sign up for the event?  I am much more comfortable if payments are completed sixteen days before the event.  Note that checks are not cashed until after the tournament.  In any case, if you sign up for the tournament but have not paid, then are you really in the tournament? 
 

Clearly, we need the following reminder.

Please read the scorecard for your flight and match your name to the proper flight column for marking your name and distance on Closest-To-Pin (CTP) cards.

Date

CTP

Hole #5

A

B

J. Miller at 33’

J. Daly  7’10”

J. Nicklaus  at 7’ 5”

 

Wouldn’t you know that Mr. Daly, with an early tee time, is really in the A flight.  CTP marked in wrong column.

This A flight player marked in a B flight slot jams B flight competitors who might have earned CTP.

What can be done about this?

       

Again, how to pay by check: 

Cost is $69 with CC on the website or $66 check/cash discount.

Make checks payable to:  Lakewood Men’s Golf Club

Mail Checks to:  LMGC   -  Attention:  Dan Wamba

4525 Deeboyar Ave / Lakewood, CA 90712

(I remind you to NOT make the check out to me.)

 

How to Pay When the Tournament is Full 

This graphic is to help with credit card payments when you must go to your ‘players’ page.  This is especially useful when a tournament is full and you need to find the button to generate your online CC payment.
