Saturday, October 13, the Ouachita Men’s Golf Association (OMGA) met to award its inaugural Jim Richardson Memorial Cup to the golfer with the highest score throughout their season. Presenting the award was OMGA president, Bob Tillman and Lorelei Richardson, wife of the late Jim Richardson.
“This year when we had our organization meeting we decided to make it the Jim Richardson Cup in recognition of one of our golfers that was well loved and a really good golfer. We started in March, when daylight savings started, and we kept a running total of who had the most points for the Jim Richardson Cup. Archie Evans won the last tournament and won the Jim Richardson Cup,” explained Tillman. “It is such an honor to have won this award, everyone liked Jim a lot and we miss him. I will take good care of the trophy,” said Evans.
The OMGA meets regularly to golf at the Ouachita Golf Course and invites any member of the community who would like to join to come out. The OMGA is the only local group that allows a golfer to set a handicap that can be carried with them to other golf courses.
