As our Summer draws to a close, I wanted to send out a quick update about what has transpired over the past couple months and what is to come for the remainder of the 2014 Golf Season.
The majority of are near completion. Results can be found on our website under the Men's Association tab on the navigation bar.
In August we had our NEGMGA Championship. I would like to congratulate this year's Club Champion, Mr. Jay Spargrove. I would also like to congratulate all participants. It was a true test of golf. Our Championship runner up was Mr. Scott Davidson. Our Flight winners and runners up were as follows: A Flight Winner Mr. Ken Wiederman and runner up Mr. John Williamson; B Flight Winner Mr. Derek Altic and runner up Mr. Todd Coil; our Senior Champion Mr. Ray Thompson and runner up Mike Brucato; Senior Net Champion Mr. Ray Thompson and runner up Mr. Harry Yitsis. Well done!
The New Era Cup will be played on September 20th at the Bent Tree Golf Club. Team Bent Tree defends The Cup and will participate on this year's West Team with Glenross Golf Club against The East Team of Royal American and New Albany Links Golf Clubs. The top 20 point earners on each side from the 2014 Golf Season will face of in a Ryder Cup format against one another. West Captains Craig Goldsberry and Jeff Olson will be pairing their squad against East Captains Greg Kline and Ryan Jacocks. This is a great event to watch. All Members are welcome to view the competition.
A special thanks to all the Members who came out to support the Harmony for Ohio Foundation for the past weekend's scramble. It was a fun event. Participants raised $1218.00 for charity playing golf.
I would also like to thank the staff members at all of our facilities for helping with this year's Member Events. These events would not be possible without their hard work and dedication to the game of golf and our membership. If you see them in passing, please take a moment to thank them all.
Lastly, our 2nd Annual New Era Clambake is being held Friday, October 3rd at Royal American Links GC. We will showcase our Chef, Jason Shalosky's fine menu of lobster, steak, clams, corn, and potatoes. It is a scramble event for all Members to participate in. You may form your team with other Members or your Guests. Registration is open for Members only for another couple days and then will be opened to the public should spots be available. We will roll out next year's Membership plan and take questions at this time. We all hope to see you there!
Thank you all once again for another great year!
Director of Membership
