MVGCSA 2019 Championship recap



The 2019 MVGCSA Championship was well contested at the Bogey Hills CC Monday, October 21st! Mother Nature certainly played a major role in challenging all golfers for this years Championship title. Players faced a wide range of weather factors from rain to cool temps to LOTS of wind! It was a battle during this last golf event for 2019!

A big thanks goes out to all at Bogey Hills in St. Charles, especially Denny Walters – owner of Bogey Hills, where the players found the course in great shape and the greens firm and smooth. Great job by Chad Fetter – Supt, Steve Luebbers – Ass’t Supt and the rest of the Bogey Hills grounds crew!

A shout out is also deserving to the fella’s that helped with the set-up early Monday morning as the clubhouse was closed and it was a DYI to get things started. Kudos to Rich Carlson, Chris Finnerty and Brad Thompson for helping pull out carts. Thanks to John Briggs and Khris Rickman for help at the registration table and Rich and Paul Hurst for assistance with the scoring tabulations. Thanks guys!

An extra BIG THANKS goes to our Affiliate sponsors for this years Championship!!!!

SPECIAL NOTE: There was some discussion at this years Championship that possibly a 2-player team scramble Championship may be added as an option to next years format. This is all up for discussion. Keep your email open and check for updates on this topic. In the meantime, talk it over with your Board members if you think this may be a viable option for future MVGCSA Championships.
