Member Outing Registration Now Open

The 3rd edition of the Louisiana Golf Association Member Outing series is right around the corner. Entries for the August 11th event at the University Club in Baton Rouge are set to open on Thursday July 7th. In 2013, the LGA began hosting its member outing series in partnership with LGA Member Clubs so as to maximize opportunities for its non-championship players. That is, these events are designed to provide LGA members who would not otherwise participate in an LGA championship to interact with the LGA and play an exclusive venue at a low cost. Chad Barker, LGA Director of Member Services, said “We are excited to partner with the University Club to promote this value-added benefit of LGA Membership. While the course itself is a gem in Louisiana golf, the opportunity for our membership to ‘play where the Tigers play’ will be a draw for golfers at all levels of our constituency.”  The home of the LSU Tigers Men’s and Women’s golf teams, the University Club hosted the 2013 Men’s Division I Regional.
