Interclub Action:

The North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association (NASMGA) has completed

the first seven tournaments.  Berkeley hosted the September Tournament

on Wednesday, September 25. Tournament Chairman Paul Spofford provided

the following report:


There were 80 signed up to play and all 80 showed up on

time...awesome!  We had great weather...course in good shape despite

the ongoing drought...and some tough pin positions!


Everyone was happy with coffee/bagels/ donuts before play and an

excellent buffet lunch after play.  We played everything "down" and

putted out everything unless out of the hole and still finished in

4:15 to 4:30.  We paid out the top seven (7) positions plus four

closest-to-the-pin awards.  We had 15 BHCC players and the BHCC

winners were...


    1st Place Team...Bill Stanhope was their A player...119 (-25)

    3rd Place Team...John Cahill...121 (-23)

    4th Place Team...Harvey Gammon was their A player...121 (-23)

    5th Place Team...Hugh McGonagle...121 (-23)

    6th Place Team...Rick O'Dom was their A player...121 (-23)

    Closest to the Pin #11...Bill Stanhope at 5'-6"

A scorecard regression from the #1 handicap hole was used to break the ties.


Our six winners were offset by those who tried to be good hosts...Ted

Wyerman was the A player for the next to last place team at 131

(-13)...and Ray Meyer and I were on the team at 132 (-12) announced as



Berkeley seniors had twice as many participants as any other club -

good since we were the hosts.  The tournament ran smoothly thanks to

Head Pro Shawn McKinnon’s assistance with pairings and scoring along

with the rest of the pro shop staff...and special thanks to Barry

Lakas, Russ Coddington, Steve Kindrick, and John Cahill for their

assistance with checking in the players and helping with other

Match Play:


There are 17 participating Country Clubs in the North Atlanta Senior Men’s Golf Association. Sixteen of the clubs have match play teams. The teams were divided into 4 divisions with each team playing the other three from the start of the season with both home and away matches.  The top two teams in each division go on to the playoffs.  Each match has 12 players from each team playing in 6 flights with two from each team playing a four-ball better ball with two players from

the opposition.  Each match is worth 3 points, one for the front nine, one for the back nine and one points for the total.  Ties are worth ½  point.

Match Play Captain Barry Lakas provided the following report:

Berkeley was in the division that included Brookfield - 61 points; Olde Atlanta/Windemere - 60.5 points; Berkeley - 52.5 points; Crooked Creek - 44.5 points.  In the final match against Olde Atlanta/Windemere, the score was Crooked Creek- 9.5 and BHCC- 8.5. Not bad for an away match.  Notable performances this season- Mike Black taking a whopping 11.5 points; Tom Harvey taking 8 points; Dean Nejame taking 7.5 points; and Paul White taking 7 points. Good playing guys.

Thanks for playing and we'll hope for better results next season!
