Dear Fellow Golfer,

    The great sport of golf is booming!  As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult to enjoy a relaxing, hassle-free day of golf at a good quality course.

    B.A.G.S., which began in the Boston area in 1989, has grown (about 700 members) to become the largest amateur golf tournament organizer in New England.  B.A.G.S. is the most effective way for golfers of all ability levels to gain tournament experience and improve their game by competing in well organized, regularly scheduled 18-hole (or more) tournaments at a variety of the top public, semi-private, and some select private courses in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
   The B.A.G.S. concept has proven very successful in Rhode Island.  The Rhode Island division annually stages over 50 events at about 25 different area courses.    As a B.A.G.S. member you may participate in as many or as few of our 7 - 10 RI division monthly events (evenly split  between weekdays and weekends) as suits your schedule.  In addition, you will be eligible to compete in events staged by our other divisions - a total of about 100 tournaments at over 50 golf courses !  Our season's schedule is published well in advance enabling you to choose just the courses and dates you want.

    B.A.G.S. members are expected to be familiar with the rules of golf and golf etiquette. We welcome applications from golfers of all ability levels.  Our tournaments are played off handicap, with most events featuring an optional gross competition for players with less than a 10 handicap.  YOU DO NOT NEED AN OFFICIAL HANDICAP TO JOIN B.A.G.S.  We are a member club of the USGA, and issue official  handicaps to our members.

   I believe that B.A.G.S. offers golfers a unique opportunity. You can become a member of our elite society by sending in your completed membership application form.

Happy Golfing,
  James Rooks - Director, Rhode Island Division
