LGA Member Club, Squire Creek Country Club, located in Choudrant, Louisiana (just outside of Ruston) was a wonderful host for the 29th U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship. This was the first USGA Championship to be conducted in Louisiana since the 1960s, and it was first class. Led by LGA Board of Directors Member and Squire Creek General Manager Ricky Maier, the entire Squire Creek staff went above and beyond the call to showcase Louisiana hospitality to patrons and players from all across the world. In addition, the golf course was in immaculate condition and provided a stern test for competitors. The Tom Fazio designed track played to a par-72 at approximately 6,061 yards. Three Louisiana women participated in this Championship, and they all competed brilliantly, representing our state on the national level. Ashley Tonore, 38, of Monroe, La., and Kay Daniel, 44, of Covington, La., advanced to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, and Sarah Davison, of Choudrant, La., advanced to the Round of 32.
Page Breaux & Scott Haynie produced a dominant performance to win the 2015 LGA Senior 4-Ball Championship at OakWing GC. Check out what they had to say:
September 27, 2015 — Alexandria, Louisiana
Page Breaux of St. Gabriel Scott Haynie of Brusly fired a nine-under par 63 Sunday at OakWing Golf Club in Alexandria to win the Louisiana Golf Association Senior Four-Ball Championship by two strokes over Frank Brame and Ben Hargis of Alexandria. Breax’s driving distance and accuracy, combined with Haynie’s course management and consistency made a formidable duo. Haynie is a decorated LGA Champion, having won the LGA Amateur in 1993 and Mid-Amateur Championship in 2002. Breaux is a mainstay at the top of the leaderboard at LGA Championships, and this is an especially sweet victory for him because it’s his first State Championship. Breaux and Haynie, members at The University Club in Baton Rouge, shot a 65 in the first round, and coupled with Sunday’s 63, they finished with a total of sixteen-under par 128 for the Championship. They played a bogey-free round on Sunday that included nine birdies of which Breaux contributed five, while Haynie carded four birdies, a true team effort.
It is with mixed emotions that we announce that Tuyen Nguyen, our Director of Member Services for almost two years, will be leaving us next month. Tuyen has accepted a position with the Southern Texas Section of the PGA of America and, while we are sad to see him go, we are extremely excited for him to embark upon another chapter is his golf administrative career.
We will be accepting applications for Tuyen’s replacement through October 15, 2015. Please find a short job description for the Director of Member Services position below.

The Louisiana Golf Association (LGA) is currently accepting applications for its 2016 USGA P.J. Boatwright internship. The successful candidate will work with all staff members at the LGA and will see golf administration from a number of perspectives.
“This position will provide a wide-ranging experience for an individual that is considering the possibility of a career in golf administration. We have had a number of former interns move on to full-time positions in the industry, both at the LGA and other golf associations,” said LGA Executive Director Carr McCalla.
Lake Charles, Louisiana — August 29, 2015
Tommy Brennan of Covington fired a final round 67 Saturday at Lake Charles Country Club to win the 2015 Louisiana Golf Association Senior Amateur Championship by four strokes over Gayle Sanchez of Baton Rouge. Brennan shot the low round of the Championship, a seven-under par 65 in the second round, which propelled him to the top of the leaderboard and gave him a three shot lead through 36 holes. Brennan is a highly decorated LGA Champion, having won the state’s Mid-Amateur Championship seven times between 1995 and 2008. This is Brennan’s first LGA Senior Amateur Championship, an especially sweet victory after having finished runner-up in this Championship in 2011. Brennan’s 54 hole total of 204 was the lowest in LGA Senior Amateur Championship history, besting Doug Farr of Monroe’s 205 at Lake Charles Country Club in 2009.
