Team Results

The best team of the night was Team Loeffler with 17 out of a possible 24 points, and they had a Sub!  The team of Matt Bieber, Darren Anand, Drew Gelfenbein, Colin McIntosh, Jake Loeffler and Richard Slusky managed to get out of the evening with one loss, one tie and 4 wins with 2 of those being shutouts.  Teams Sleeper, L’Esperance, Evarts and Yee aren’t far behind.

Individual Results

Speaking of shutouts, we had 10 overall – 4 in the F Flight, 3 in the E Flight, 1 in the C Flight and another 2 in the B Flight.  I should mention that I know at least 2 of those were no shows for the night.  Captains, make sure your players are showing up!

Our players in the number one slot after our first week are Doug Johnson, Tyler Troescher, Kurt Liebgott, Jake Loeffler, Hall Evans, Roy L’Esperance and Kevin Sleeper.  We had two rookies win their first match with a blowout.  Charlie Masenas and Daryl Campney, welcome to Men’s League!  And a special shout out to Richard Slusky who got his first win and a shutout subbing for Captain Loeffler!

Individual Money

As promised we had our first of 13 weeks of Thursday prizes, just another reason to show up and play on Thursday.  This week it was a Closest to the Pin contest for our E and F Flight players.  The Closest to the Pin version of our weekly prizes will only be on the front nine, but you’ll have a chance to win on both par 3s.  This week Jake Loeffler stuck his tee shot on 4 to 6’11” and Dan Ryan got to 13’11 on the 8th hole to each win $80 in cash.  Congrats to you both!

In an effort to distribute more money, more regularly to more people we limited this Closest to the Pin to just the E and F flights, next week it’s B and C – make sure to play the front nine next week folks!

Scorecards

My apologies for the confusion with Scorecards last night, I didn’t do a very good job communicating our needs to the Pro Shop.  Next week we’ll make a couple of changes.   Thanks for your patience as we worked out a few kinks in our new process, we’ll have more details to follow.

Have a great weekend, stay dry!

Swanny Scramble

a packed house

What a great way to start our season!  I hope you had as much fun as I did last night, judging from the pictures and stories I’m guessing that you did.  It was just the kind of night that John would have loved, I’m sure he was the invisible force that held off our rain last night.

Not only did we avoid the rain, we had a scoring system that wasn’t confusing and a payout of actual cash in a timely fashion!  Kudos once more to Mike Abbott, Kris Cauchon and Shaun West for helping make this an exciting start to the year.  Kudos should also go out to our Outside Staff and Bartenders.  Yesterday, was the Vermont Golf Association annual trip to VNCC – it’s a huge day across the state for folks who don’t get a chance to play our track and it always sells out.  Outside Staff not only cleaned up after that hot mess, they got us ready right after and stayed late to clean up our mess.  Jaden and Hannah, the waitstaff and kitchen kicked into gear around 8 and did an incredible job of a difficult task – 84 rowdy thirsty, customers all at once.

 

Congratulations!

We had some surprisingly low scores all around but two teams finished tied with a 6 under 66.  Ultimately, it came down to a tie-breaker on the 7th hole to decide the match.

Team Sleeper – Phil Sheridan, Doug Johnson, David DeLuca, Mark Levinsky, Chris Thomson and Kevin Sleeper ended up with the top prize and $50 each for their collective efforts!

Team McAllister – Scott McAllister, Will McAllister, Michael Troescher, Dan Jenkins subbing for Matt Dodds, Michael Cheeseman and Bill Stirewalt ended up in second place and received $40 each for a fantastic round.  A 66 with a bogey on 7!  Great job guys.

Captains

Captains

A few weeks ago our Captains got together for draft night, this week we took a picture.  It’s a thankless job that might result in a name on a trophy or plaque in the clubhouse.  It’s not much but I’m very grateful for anyone who takes on this task.  I’m particularly happy for this year’s group of guys.  As you’ve learned we’ve listened to your suggestions and made  few format changes this year.  Our Captains will be instrumental in ushering in these new changes.

Too long ago, I took on the role as Captain because I didn’t really get to meet anyone on my team the year before.  I made a point of trying to schedule a tee time with everyone of them – at least once.  That idea has evolved into the Team Event concept that you saw last night.  Hopefully you got to meet someone new and reconnect with guys you wouldn’t normally play with on Saturday or Sunday.  Keep that going, when you make tee times this year try and play with someone on your team.

 

 

Poker

If you didn’t have enough fun on the course last night, or ended up a little cash from the prize pool there was always Poker.  For those 18 new members, you may not be aware but we almost always play a little poker after Men’s League on Thursday.  The Member Lounge outside of the Men’s Locker room is spot and all you have to do is show up to play.  John Swanson was almost always at the table, and almost always with a Jack Daniels by his side.  When I walked through after my round I noticed this picture on the table and I got a little choked up.  I hope you enjoyed the Jack Daniels and a toast to our friend.  We love you too, John.  Cheers!

 

About

As you’re likely aware, we kick off our season this Thursday May4th at 5:30 pm with a Team Scramble Event.  We do it every year as a way to bring new players and old together for a meet and greet of sorts.

There will be food and drinks available (for no additional cost) at the putting green and driving range.  It’s also where your team carts, clubs and hole assignments will be located when you race from the parking lot at the last minute.

Our Friend

This year we lost a longtime Player, Captain and friend unexpectedly and our league will greatly miss John Swanson.  To celebrate his life and contribution to our success we’ll be sharing a toast and one of his favorite additions to the game we love.

The “Swanny Scramble” will include what John like to call the “Chipanga”, what we’ll call the “Swanny”.  Basically, John thought that golf should be played with as many side bets as possible.  I’m pretty sure he believed that he could beat his opponent with confusion.  The “Chipanga” happened when you hit a shot out of a sandtrap and then sank the putt – to everyone else it’s a sandy.

This Thursday, in celebration, we’ll ask Captains to add to your scorecards a little “S” whenever one of your teams chip out of the sand and then make the putt.  We’ll count the number of times you record a “Swanny” and use it to break any ties we might have at the end of the night.

and his Book Collection

Finally, if you knew John you knew he was an avid reader and collected a massive book collection.  Starting on Thursday there will be a collection of those books available for anyone to grab with a donation to one of John’s favorite charities – an amount of your choice.  Take a minute to peruse and gain a little insight into his collection over the years.

See you tomorrow, have fun and play well!

Just another shout out to former and new members that you should take a minute to sign up for the 2017 season!

At the end of last year we sat down for a brainstorming session and heard a lot of great ideas for improving on another successful season.  My personal favorite is that Kris Cauchon and Shaun West are going to be doing most of the heavy lifting this year.  Running this league is a lot like herding cats (watch) and I’m so grateful they’ve agreed to help out.

Substitutes

One of the most exciting ideas that has come out of our discussions is the Sub List.  We’ve always posted a list of players willing to fill in if you couldn’t play your match in a given week.  One problem with being on the list is that you get a lot of emails and phone calls.

The solution is that we’re going to draft players on the Substitute list to specific teams during Draft Night on April 20th.  Instead of 96 people emailing you about filling in, it will just be 6.  You’ll also get to know your team and play with them in Team Events.

For this to work, we’d like 2-3 subs per team.  If you’ve got a friend who might like to see what Men’s League a about, but not ready to commit – this is a great chance to get involved.  Make sure to send them the link above and get them signed up!
