CGA Cancels Saturday’s Tanglewood Event


Championship Golf Association Director Jeff Jenkins announced at noon today that this Saturday’s stroke play tournament at Tanglewood National Golf Club in Chagrin Falls has been canceled, as only 12 players registered even after an extension of the entry deadline.

This is the second consecutive event that the CGA dropped due to low player numbers; last Sunday’s scheduled event at Legends of Massillon was also called off.

The next event on the CGA schedule is at Windmill Lakes in Ravenna on Saturday, June 18th. But the Windmill event is scheduled for the same day as the highly popular Ungvary Memorial 2-M Jumble at Good Park, which may make it difficult to attract players.

An immediate response was not received from Jenkins regarding the rest of the season.

    Times haven’t changed, people have changed. If there isn’t alot of money to be won, nobody wants to play. What happened to playing golf for fun or playing to win something, it’s all about how much money you can win. Pretty sad if you ask me. Some guys could play like crap but birdie the right hole and win 100 buck and go home happy, don’t understand that. If Jeff wants the CGA to continue, stop scheduling events in the spring when all the scrambles are cause too many guys will play in those to win money, and then complain cause they didn’t win cause somebody “cheated”!

    Times have changed. It’s not like the old days when we could do anything we want. No golf association is going to thrive in these times. Particularly one that is run half-ass.

    A 7 hour commitment spent getting to the course, playing, and driving home, only to discover the old lady threw your shaving gear in the front yard. Serious players in their 40’s and 50’s getting older, lazy, and not as competitive. Younger guys in their 20’s and 30’s not participating like years past because they’ve got too many other things to do, like play video games or get a tattoo on their neck. Nobody or very few wanting or able to shell out $75 or more and get $0 in return. Obamanomics killing the country, 4 inches of rain every week, $5 dollar a gallon gas prices.

    Give it up.
