Senior Men’s Golf Association —
Don Holec, President
The Senior Men’s Golf Association is a
group of about ninety members that play golf almost every Wednesday morning at the Hills
Course in McKinney, Tx. To join, you must be fifty-five or older, have
golfing privileges on the Hills Golf Course, and pay our $25 annual dues.
Individuals who will become 55 in the current calendar year are also eligible
During our normal Wednesday play days
(shotgun start at 8:30 in warm months, 9:00 for cold months) we have a “closest to the pin” ($2 entry fee) contest
and a different, fun, everybody has a chance to win, tournament format every
week ($5 entry fee), the entry fee pool is paid out as prizes in pro shop
credit. You can see the formats by clicking the “Schedule” button on our
dedicated website .
We play inter-club tournaments with
several other nearby Clubs, you can see who and when by visiting our web site. The inter-club
tournaments each have a separate entry fee, usually about $40, that pays for prizes, golf and cart, and
the meal. We also have a year-long player-of-the-year contest where points
are accumulated by playing (and winning) in SMGA events throughout the year.
We sponsor other fun events such as an annual match play tournament, and special
contests such as NCAA March Madness and Super Bowl related contests. We end the year with a two day SMGA
Championship Tournament followed by a really good banquet (free, the banquet
alone is worth the cost of the annual dues!) If you would like to join our
little group, just click the “Contact Us – Join” button on our website or just
show up at the Clubhouse about forty minutes before our start time
most any Wednesday and we will get you in.
