River Place Cup
For every MGA monthly tournament in which you participate, you receive MGA points. The players with the top 24 points during the year compete in December for the River Place Cup. This is a 36 hole tournament with the same format as the Ryder Cup.
Saturday Open MGA Play
Every Saturday at 8:00 a.m. the Pro Shop reserves tee times for MGA open play. Call ahead to put your name on the list, and play with people you know or meet new friends. There are also optional skins games during the Saturday play.
Monthly Inter-Club Matches
For nine months of the year, River Place participates in the Austin Area Inter-Club matches, where 10 volunteers of varying skills play against teams from other courses at different courses around town. Represent River Place while playing other great courses in Austin!
