MGA OD winners

The winning team members of the 2021 MGA Opening Day tournament are, from left, Pat Wolfe, Terry McKinnon, Chuck Holcombe and Dick Scharf. 

            The Men’s Golf Association held its opening day on Saturday, March 13. It turned out to be a great day with the weather cooperating. There were 92 participants with play beginning at 9:30 a.m. on both Choctaw and Cherokee. The event was an ABCD scramble with teams randomly selected. When play completed, the winners were Pat Wolfe, Terry McKinnon, Chuck Holcombe and Dick Scharf at a net of 23 under par. There were also four closest-to-the pin winners: Jim Hansen, Wade Starling, Ross Milley and Dick Scharf.

MGA opening

Members of the MGA gather after the first tournament of the season, March 13.  

            The MGA’s next event will be April 16 and 17. This event is the Replay Tournament: golfers play the same holes the second day to improve scores from the first day. Hopefully improvement can occur on day two. We are looking forward to another great tournament.  

            The MGA appreciates the support we receive from the Big Canoe Pro Shop staff with handling of pairings, tee times and scoring.
