One of the best tournaments of the year, the 2013 Member-Member was played the weekend of June 22-23. 22 teams competed in this year’s event, which was filled with low scores and great weather.
The event begins on Saturday with the Scramble/Alternate Shot format, with the contest being handicapped accordingly. The front nine of the golf course is played as a two man scramble, while the back nine is played as a modified alternate shot format. The team of Dean Hollinger and Dick Branstetter shot a score of 68 gross, 61 net, far outplaying the competition by 7 shots. What a great score!
After play completed on Saturday, the teams headed to the Clubhouse, where they were treated to an outstanding meal by Chef Jeff. The players indulged in pork chops, cheesy potatoes, apple dumplings, and the list goes on. Definitely one of the best meals of the year. Sunday morning of the tournament started with a huge breakfast from the Chef as well. Polish sausage, bacon, cinnamon rolls, and more, the players probably had a hard time moving to the course after such a feast!
The tournament on Sunday continued as the format switched to a 2-man 1 Best Ball contest. Once again, we saw some unbelievable scores as two teams shot net 60 (Brad Kenny & Jeff Mitchell and Ken Newnum & Bill Williams) and numerous others right behind them. Unfortunately, these scores were not low enough to surpass Dave Carroll and Mike Whitecotton as they shot an incredible 14-under, net 56. Awesome job!
The Crawfordsville Country Club Staff would like to thank all participants this year as this event is growing to be the best we have to offer to the membership. We appreciate your support and continued playing in the MGA events for the rest of the year.
