Northern Ohio Golf AssociationThe conditions were sure a whole lot better than the originally scheduled date.

Back on May 6th, Lakewood Country Club was a pond. Standing water everywhere led to a cancellation and reschedule of the NOGA Spring Four-Ball.

July 1st is certainly no longer “Spring”, but the decision was a great one as the Monday event saw sunny skies, fast and firm conditions, speedy greens, and not a puddle to be found anywhere.

Three-under par 68 was the best score of the day, as two AA teams finished tied for first place with that total.

Chris Okeson and Steve Putinski matched Griffin Todd and Joshua Zarlenga for event medalist honors, although Todd and Zarlenga “out skinned” their counterparts, 3 vs 2.

Tom Baugh

In the AA Senior Flight, the NOGA winning just keeps on coming for Tom Skidmore and Tom Baugh (above). Having already won the NOGA 2-Player Scramble and the NOGA Senior AA Four-Ball at Sand Ridge this year, Skidmore and Baugh earned a third team victory on the season, besting a trio of teams by just one shot.

John Blackburn and Brian Parsons captured the A Flight with a solid score of 1-under par 70, while Bob Lesigonich and Steve Anderson earned top honors in the A Senior Flight with a 72.

Dennis Fujka
Dennis Fujka hits to the 18th green on his way to a “Team Dennis” Senior B victory.

In the B Flight, Dan Juris and Bill Harrington shot 74 to win there, while Team Dennis, Dennis Fujka and Dennis Chupa matched that winning score of 74 for the B Senior Flight.

And rounding out the results, Geoff Karcher and Matt Tucker won the C Flight with a 78.

The next event on the 2019 schedule is the NOGA Stroke Play West at Elyria Country Club on Monday July 15th. The next team event is the NOGA 55/25 Four-Ball at Silver Lake Country Club on Monday Aug 19th. Get your entries in here >

The reschedule of the Spring Four-Ball also meant for the first time ever, NOGA was conducting two events simultaneously. The USGA Girls Junior Am qualifier was being held across town at Chagrin Valley Country Club, starting at 8a that morning. Both events came off to perfection, so kudos to the entire NOGA staff…
