The Weekender E-Newsletter | Mass Golf

Mass Golf gets you ready for the weekend with a Friday morning e-newsletter keeping you updated on the latest local, regional and national golf news from the past week, as well as things to look forward over the weekend. It will also contain promotions offered by both Mass Golf and its allied organizations.

The digital issues are delivered to each inbox on Friday morning.
