Dear KMGA Member,
The primary purpose of the KMGA is to promote an active golf program for our members. Through our tournaments, additional events, and the VSGA-affiliated handicap program, we aim to further competition, encourage fair play and promote camaraderie among members of all golfing abilities.
As a member, you will have numerous opportunities to participate in KMGA events in 2020. The 2020 tournament schedule is posted on our website, kmgolf.org, and on the board in the men’s lounge at the River course and at the Woods Clubhouse. We will have 14-weekend tournaments this year, typically with small flights, various tee options and a variety of formats to encourage participation by all members.
For golfers who can play during the work week, we offer Home and Away social outings (coordinated by Russ Prince) in competition with teams from surrounding clubs. The format is four-ball match play and teams consisting of players of all skill levels are generally limited to the first 24 players to sign up for each venue. Also, for members 55 and older, we participate in the Williamsburg Cup Senior Four-Ball Competition (coordinated by Tom Bolk) which pit our 12-man team against teams from nearby clubs and competition includes both scratch and net matches. In addition, Odd Lots tournaments are held on Tuesdays (currently coordinated by Ed Hamill and George Keister) throughout the golf season at Kingsmill and are open to all KMGA members. The Odd Lots events are a particularly good opportunity for new members to get acquainted with other KMGA members.
The Kingsmill Resort Membership website (kingsmill.com/membership) provides access to important information regarding KMGA programs and golf at Kingsmill in general. Bookmark kmgolf.org in your web browser to yield a quick redirect to Kingsmill’s KMGA page, which contains among other things, links to the 2020 tournament schedule, KMGA membership directory, KMGA policies and procedures and information on the new World Handicap System. As we approach the tournament season, this website will be your primary source for keeping up to date on all KMGA activities, and importantly, for downloading entry forms and accessing pre-tournament information on tournament flights, pairings and starting hole assignments. In addition, our tournament chairman will post hard copies of entry forms and tournament reports at both the River and Woods courses.
Our KMGA leadership team encourages your input on any questions or suggestions you may have. Please feel free to contact me ([email protected]), Vice President, Bill Goodale ([email protected]), Treasurer, Marty Reynolds ([email protected]), Secretary, Joe Moore ([email protected]), or our Handicap Chairman, Denby Starling ([email protected]) at any time.
The KMGA maintains a secure email address list, as email is our primary method of communication. Please send any updates or corrections on your contact information to Secretary, Joe Moore.
We are looking forward to a fun and successful 2020 golfing season.

|Odd Lots of Today|
The Odd Lots are very similar to those depicted in the “Golfers are an Odd Lot” article. We play 18 holes almost every Tuesday on the River, Plantation or Woods courses, with tee times changing by season. Odd Lots play a different format each week, chosen by the Captains. The players have the choice of red, white or red/white combo tees. The Odd Lots use email to send results and information to the players as well as post results, signup sheet, and schedule in the men’s locker room, players can sign up via email . If you are a first-time player all you need to do is write your name on the signup sheet, along with your handicap, by Monday at noon. Odd Lots are all about enjoying golf and your fellow golfers and as said before “You don’t have to be a good golfer, just a good guy”.
