Arrowhead Country Club hosted the start of the 41st season of the Southwest Senior Golf Association on Martin Luther King Day with windy but sunny weather. We were hosted by Head Golf Professional David Fisher and his staff.
The course played difficult for the majority of players with a team score of 133 tying for first place. Ben Sauls, Ron Welch, Dave Williams and Ron Wood along with the team of Clifford Moore, Nick Fine, Roy Hyde and Ken Wade shared first place honors. Each earned 12 Founders Champion points toward the Player of the Year award as well as $150 in Van’s Gift Cards. 7 teams tied for 3rd for 9 points and $62 per player.
Professional Jim Sartor led all players with a one under par 71 while Amateurs Jeff Navarre and John Hernandez were low gross for the amateurs with 74s. Low net amateur honors were split between James Hart and Dan Gleason. Each player was awarded 7 Founders Championship points. Professional Barry Conser claimed the lone gross skin on #2 with an eagle 3 for $340 and a quarter of the net skins for another $85 on the same hole. Rick Deloney claimed 2 net skins on #3 and #7 for a total of $170. Thomas Loder made net 3 on #18 to claim the remaining skin for $85.
Brad Ingarfield of Murphy’s Law Irish Pub was our new closest to the pin sponsor and awarded 4 prizes of 6 Pro V-1s and a $60 gift certificate to the four winners. They were Larry Wood on #3, Jeff Navarre #7, Randy Wittig #11 and Doug Gage #15.
Phil Kerr and CardinaleWay Mazda was our drink ticket sponsor. Both Phil and Brad Ingarfield’s involvement have enhanced our organization immensely and please utilize their business whenever possible.
A delicious pulled pork sandwich as well as chicken breast were our on our dinner menu. Thanks to Head Chef Tim Fields and staff for wonderful dinner.
Our next event entry is now available on the website. It is Tatum Ranch on Monday February 25th. Please note, after 10+ years it has been necessary to raise your entry fee $10. With prices having increased dramatically over the years it was decided it was time to make this adjustment. The entry reflects this change, thank you for your understanding and we want to offer the best tournament golfing experience for the most reasonable cost. If you have played in other events this should be apparent.
See you at Tatum Ranch and the race for the 2019 Founders Championship and Player of the Year honors have started.
1st Place Tie!
