Ray Named Louisiana Golf Association's Assistant Executive Director

April 1, 2015 – Lafayette, LA 

The Louisiana Golf Association (LGA) announced on Wednesday that Logan Ray, its Director of Championship Operations, has also been named as the organization’s Assistant Executive Director.   Ray, who has served the organization since January of 2011, will retain the Director of Championship Operations title, but will take on additional administrative responsibilities as well.

Ray began his tenure with the LGA just over four years ago as the LGA’s USGA Boatwright intern, serving in that capacity for a year before taking on the newly-created position of Director of Championship Operations in January of 2012.

“We are pleased to have Logan take on this title and the additional responsibilities it entails as we continue to position our organization for the future.  He has become, in a relatively short period of time, an integral part of our staff, continuing the legacy of honesty, integrity, and service to the game that we continue to strive to provide to our Member Clubs and individual members.  The reality is that Logan has been, for all intents and purposes, serving in this capacity for over a year.  We felt it only appropriate to make it official,” said LGA Executive Director Carr McCalla.
