The CSGA Distinguished Club Award is based on four major criteria:
A club that has continually supported and advanced the game of golf;
a club that has served as a model of excellence to other Connecticut golf clubs;
a club that has consistently supported amateur golf
through club-sponsored activities,
hosting state competitions, and member participation in CSGA events;
and a club that has consistently provided extraordinary service to the CSGA
encouraging volunteers,
providing leadership personnel,
and hosting meetings, seminars,
and special events.

Congratulations!!!

Dear MCC Members,

The Golf Committee, with the agreement of the Board of Directors, has decided
to end the tee time reservation system
for the remainder of 2020 starting Sunday, October 18th.

The dual rationale is:  

1) although the Course is open beyond the October 17th “Closing Day“ tournament,
the MCC golf "season" is over and thus the Committee feels
it is appropriate to institute open play at that time.  

2) ending the tee time reservation system in mid-October makes course access equitable for those
who would have early tee reservations that would be lost due to frost delays that could be frequent
and of unpredictable duration post-Closing Day.

All aspects of our COVID guidelines will remain in effect, particularly maintaining proper social distancing
on the putting greens and the Clubhouse/patio, cart staging, Pro Shop, porch and first tee areas.

The issue of Course access, including tee times, will be evaluated--with member input--
and decided upon during the off-season and communicated accordingly.

With best regards,

MCC Golf Committee
Ian Taylor, Chair

Congratulations to SUE RYAN on earning the distinction as the 2020 MCC Woman's Most Improved Golfer!!

To be eligible to receive the recognition the individual must have participated in at five MWGA, Thursday morning events. 
Over the course of the season, April through October, Sue's handicap index improved by an impressive difference of 6.8.   
As the Most Improved Golfer Sue will receive $25 in golf shop credit!!


Not only was Sue the most improved golfer but was a great supporter of woman's golf. 
Sue was a very active participant in the Thursday, MWGA events as well as extremely involved with the Ladies Monday Twilight events. 
Sue donated her time, effort and skill set in creating and personally making face coverings/masks for all the participants in the MWGA,
Monday Twilights and  MWGA Member-Guest.  She also was an often contributor to desserts on Monday evenings. 


More importantly Sue is a thoughtful, considerate person who has come to love the game of golf
and cares for the success of the MCC Woman's Golf Programs. 


Way to go Sue!!  Keep up the great job!!
