- Golfer Benefits
TAUNTON, Massachusetts – The first Member Day event of the 2018 season took place on Monday at Segregansett Country Club. A field of golfers from across the state traveled to Taunton for 18 holes of golf where prizes in three divisions were awarded.
“It was a great start to the Member Day season,” said Connor McDonagh-Poh, Mass Golf’s Manager of Member Events & Services who manages the Member Day program. “Everyone was so excited to play after what was a long winter and spring season. It was a fun day all around, and we could not be happier to get this record-breaking season underway.”
To McDonagh-Poh‘s point, this year marks another record-breaking season for the Member Day program which was first introduced during the 2010 season as a way to bring Mass Golf championship experience to golfers of all skills and age levels. The program also allows golfers to play courses that they might never have an opportunity to visit otherwise.
