Happy New Year to everyone,

The first tournament of the new year will be held on January 8th 2011 at Roaring River Golf Course.

The following weekend (January 15th) will be the second tournament for the month.

After this we will be holding tournaments every 1st and 3rd Saturday every month, throughout 2011.

Before the tournament on 8th January we will be holding our Annual General Meeting. Please make the effort to get there early so we can complete the meeting and get on to the serious business of playing golf :-)

We extend an invitation to all golfers in Belize to come and enjoy the game and to make Golf in Belize a competitive and vibrant sport. This invitation is also to the members of the BGA. Remember the more of us there are the healthier the competition will be.

There are Gross and Net awards so everyone is in with a chance of winning.

Plus we will offer our Las Vegas "2" score pot for anyone interested.

We want to see as many of you as possible and look forward to a great 2011.
