Welcome to the BGA


Important Disclaimer

While we try to provide content which is suitable for our own sons and daughters to read, The BGA Central Office apologizes in advance for any offense that you may take.

While we certainly have no idea who you are, we do know that at least 3 of you out there have skin that is just a little bit too thin to play in our foursome.

Golf for us is a chance to sharpen our tongues and laugh at our friends. We try never to make fun of persons who we do not know but over the years almost everyone that has been paired with us has also joined in the mocking and humor of our pathetic attempts to play good golf.

It is in that spirit that we, at The BGA Central Office, invite you to send us tales of your own golfing triumphs and meltdowns.

Over the course of playing with the Bad Golfers Association, there have been a few, truly a scant few, memories to cherish. Here are most of them.

Most memorable shot:
Making an 18 foot snake of a putt in Myrtle Beach to save a score of 9. No double digits here!

Oct. 31, 1998, Hole #5 at Longview (now Fox Hollow) GC, my only “eagle”
2008, Hole #12 at Greystone GC: actually dumped first tee shot in ravine, jarred 2nd tee shot for a par.

Best / Worst Rounds:
9 Hole: 2008, Mt. Pleasant GC, even par 36
18 Hole: 1997, Longview (now Fox Hollow) GC, 80
9 Hole: 1991, Pine Ridge GC, 72
18 Hole: 1996, Colonial Charters (Myrtle Beach), 125

Significant Awards:
BGA Simian Award and Race for the Chee’burger, 2007 & 2012
2007 Fall Champion, “B” Flight, Pine Ridge Men’s Club

Spectacular Accomplishments:
14 stroke improvement between holes 3 & 4 at Eastport GC in Myrtle Beach. Knew I had “that shot” to get over a lake, guess I really didn’t have it and recoded a 16. Next hole was a birdie 2.
