President Jerry made the following announcements/presentations:
- Kevin Grogan received a pin for bringing in a new member.

David Hogg introduced Paul Simon, president of Augusta Riverfront LLC, who spoke about the Junior Invitational golf tournament at Sage Valley Golf Club as well as First TEE Augusta. The 2015 tournament was held April 23rd through April 25th and for the first time ever had an international winner-Marcus Kinhult from Sweden. The goal of the Junior Invitational golf tournament and First TEE are both to promote the game of golf to the next generation by providing accessibility to people of all socio-economic backgrounds.
