Our next event..
Monday, Nov 26th
The Aguila Golf Course was the site
of our season’s 10th event. Designed by golf course
architect Gary Panks, Aguila GC is the newest of Phoenix's municipal golf
courses. With the majority of our
participants playing Aguila for the first time, it was a pleasure to hear everyone’s after
round report that Aguila, with its modern day design and South Mountain views,
was found to be an enjoyable and challenging layout for all.
A special thank you to Aguila’s GM Bob
Pancratz and his staff for executing our event to success. A second thank you goes out to Dillon’s
Catering, who served a wonderful Kansas City style BBQ buffet after completion
of play. And finally, a third big thank
you goes to Antigua for graciously offering the apparel promo to SWSGA members,
and Antigua sales rep, Tommy Scott, who was on-site delivering our SWSGA
logo-ed shirts and hats from the Antigua Apparel van.
weather, coupled with good fairways and greens led to an enjoyable day for all
participants. Scoring a victory in the
one gross, one net, team event with an impressive score of 120, was
Professional James Hanawalt and Amateurs John Welsh, Mark Matthews & Dale
Shemelya. Professional Kelly Olohan lapped the field in taking home the
low gross honors with a very impressive 7 under round of 65. Tied for low net honors with net 64s were Mark
Matthews, Rich Martin & Alan Arndt. The four closest-to-the-pin
competitions were won by Ron Garland, Jim Sartor, Patrick Murphy & John
Welsh on holes 3, 7, 13, & 16 respectively.
The closest CTP was just 8 inches
from taking home the Hole-in-One pot which had grown to $632. In addition
to the day's regular competitions, a gross and net skins game was held. At the
end of the day, there were 3 gross and 4 net skins won. Full event
results can be found under the Tournament Schedule tab. Congratulations to all prize winners!
next SWSGA event will feature a stop at one of the Valley’s favorite and historic
venues, Mesa Country Club. Now in its 70th
year, Mesa CC is reminiscent of other great traditional designs of that era,
featuring towering trees, elevation changes, smaller greens and numerous dog
legs, both right & left. It is a
perfect venue to introduce a new member or to bring a guest. This event will be played on Monday, November
26 with a 12:30pm start. Hope to see everyone there! Sign up TODAY!
