The Home Stretch Begins!!!!!

We have completed play on all the truly great 9 hole Courses on our schedule and are starting the home stretch of 3 really fine, challenging 18 Hole Gems.

Tatanka is the first up Aug 29, this coming Monday followed by Indian Trails at Beemer and the finale at Wayne CC.

Tatanka has been rated as the Top Rated New Resort Course in the United States by Golf Magazine. It is truly a BEAUTIFUL Course. While it is challenging, it is a fair test of Golf. You will remember this NENSGA event for a long,long time.Please remember this is a very professional run Course, and there is a strict Dress code enforced. No Demin of any kind, and a collared shirt are required..

Please check out the NENSGA Cup points for updates. It is up to date and very,very close at this time. Please remember the Top 5 places receive rewards, with the First place winner also getting the NENSGA SENIOR CUP designation.

See you all at Tatanka!! Drive safely

Computer Mania sidetracks Newsletter

The last 2 events were not reported on because oldduffernensga blew up! The new email is now oldduffernensga@telebeep.com. The old e-mail is resting somewhere in cyberland.

The tournament at Club 91 in Leigh was a huge success, again! Great Course, great food, and a great host in Marybeth. It was an absolute beautiful day to play golf.

The next event was at a familiar Course with a new Host. Matt did an outstanding job at Steepleview in Humphrey. Once again, we had a good day for Golf and an excellent meal.

We just completed Randolph with all the same results…….. except for the wind!! In spite of that, a very, very, fine 63 was recorded by Tim Lindquist and Jerry Nelson. Were are indeed blessed to have so many EXCELLENT venues to return to every year, with NO surprises. Our next event is July 25 at Eldorado in Norfolk. Bill tells me the course is as good as he has seen it. Considering the winter-kill of a couple years ago, I am really looking forward to playing the Course once again. Rumor has it that Barbeque Ribs will be back!

I have up-dated the Senior Cup points thru Leigh, and will up-date again this week to include Randolph. Don’t fret Dennis, for some reason the page has developed a glitch, but if you search down the page, you will notice Dennis Koopman is leading with 115 points! As always, this is going down the stretch again with many players with-in easy striking range.

I will be current now for the duration, as long as the computer minions leave me alone. Drive safely and we will see you @ Eldorado July 25.

 

The new Management at Humphrey Rocks !

With a new manager, Steepleview was as good as every. A very good meal, the course was very good, and the weather cooperated for a very competitive event.

Flights were as follows:

1st  Leon Bender & Bill Nickeson with a smooth 67, this was a tie breaker with Dan Huss and John Doggett also with a 67 as well

2nd  Doug Lute  &  Steve Urwiler with a 72 , There were 4 others teams with 72 as well

3rd  Sam Knepper & John Winter with a 76 , there were also 4 teams with 76 as well

4th  Dennis Helphrey & Frank Wiley with a 79, they won a play-off With Verlin Hingst and Byron Vanness who also shot 79.

The next event is at Club 91 in Leigh , Ne on Monday June 20th. We will follow that up a week later , June 27th at Hartington. Mark your calenders!

Another Great Venue At Wakefield

The weather held, it turned out to be a beautiful day at Logan Valley Golf Club in Wakefield. Flight winners were Dennis Koopman and Harold Shroeder ; Hart Vollers and Steven R. Smith ; and Milt Palas and Erv Fuscher. Congrats!!!!

Next up is  Humphrey on June 6, this is always a really good event and this year I see no different outcome as well. Remember to check out the NENSGA Rules posted on our Website, I still have Members that do not understand the cancellation policy. These rules are IMPORTANT to know. Just go to the tournament rules and click on them.

The NENSGA Cup points are up-dated and posted  on the Web as well. It is already getting heated and as usual will probably go right to the wire. Bring your A game to Humphrey, and drive safely, see you on June 6

The New NENSGA Season is Off and Running

We are very pleased with the start of the 2016 season. The new sign up procedure designed by Brad Penlerick and implemented by Bill Schuele has really simplified the process at the first couple of tournaments.

First place winners at Elkhorn Acres in Stanton were Ralph Zeisler & Dan Fernau, Byron Vanness & Jimmy Jorgensen, and Bruce Lundahl & Dennis Koopman.

First place winners at Highland Oaks in Ponca were Dennis Koopman & Harold Schroeder, Rick Sterkel & Allen Smith and Gary Johnson & Richard Preuss.

Next up is Fairplay in Norfolk on May 16. Please note, that this is a scramble format NOT the modified best ball that was printed in error on the entry form.

There are still a few openings at Indian Trails in Beemer, check your schedule and see if it will work for you. We will have a guest four-some from the Central Nebraska Senior Golf Assoc. join us again this year. They really enjoyed our event last year, and “think” they can do better this year!! Please Welcome them to the NENSGA family when you encounter them.

We will see you all Monday May 16 at Fairplay. Hit em straight and drive safely.

 

 

Happy New Year NENSGA Members !!!

We are starting our 7th year in 2016, and every year has been better than the last. Membership is up, attendance is up, and the Golf Courses are doing a Great job of hosting our Tournaments.

In 2016, there will be one very important change in the way we set up our Tournaments. We have listened to the Membership , and have concluded that we need to simplify our entry process. Starting this coming 2016 campaign, all entries will be sent to Bill Schuele, our Vice President. There will be no need to contact each Course for any reason, Bill will handle entries, cancellations, finding replacements, or any other questions concerning the Tournaments.

When you receive yours entry forms, you will notice that all entry forms will have the same address to return your entry form and checks, and one (1) phone number to call if the need arises, such as cancellations, etc.We have also up-dated the Web Page, www.nensga.com. You will be able to go to the 2016 Tournament page, and click on the entries received for each Tournament, and it will reflect who has sent in their entries, and if needed, who is on stand by.

THIS IS IMPORTANT !! For those of you that which to send in entries for multiple Tournaments, you MUST send separate checks for each Tournament you wish to enter. You CANNOT send 1 large check to cover all of those events. You CAN send 1 check to cover you and your partner for each Tournament (encouraged !), or you can each send a separate check and entry form as done in the past. THE CHECKS MUST BE MADE OUT TO THE GOLF COURSES as in the past.

If you do not use computers, please call Bill or myself and we will confirm your status. Please allow 3-4 days after you mail your entries for Bill to receive them and post your names. As most of you are aware, it would be wise to mail your entries at least 3 to 4 weeks in advance.

Another Very Successful Season In 2015

The 2015 season is now in the record books. We crowned our NENSGA SENIOR CUP Champion. Gary Schoepf is our 2nd multiple honoree, earning his 2nd CUP.

The final tournament at the Wayne Country Club was very well attended with 92 players. It turned out to be a fantastic Day for golf. We had a GREAT Steak meal and everyone in attendance came away with something. Troy Harder, PGA PRO at Wayne added $700 to the prize fund as well as several other nice touches for our Membership.

We will start our Fall meetings in less than 2 weeks so the challenges and memories are still fresh in our minds. They will be very wide ranging discussions, and  we will endeavor to make the changes necessary to make 2016 the best Season so Far.

Please contact any of the Board Members with any suggestions, or concerns with-in the next 2 weeks so we can discuss them in detail. Thank you all for a very successful 2015, And be safe until we get together next year!

Indian Trails and Summerland Both in the Books

We have had 2 great events at very well maintained Courses. Both Indian Trails at Beemer and Summerland at Ewing were really fun to play. The food was excellent and the competition extremely competitive.

Next up is going to be the stretch run of  good 18 hole Courses, FairPlay in Norfolk, Quail Run in Columbus, and the Finale at Wayne CC. These 3 Tournaments will determine the NENSGA Senior Cup Champion and the 4 other Members who will share the year end Money. The current standings thru Ewing have been posted, please take a look. There is the potential of 75 points up for grabs and too many scenarios to test the best math major. In other words, “Show Me The Money” for several lucky winners.

Remember, you can’t win if you don’t play! There are still a few openings at Both Quail Run and Wayne, get your entries in Now to make sure you have a shot at the Season ending honors.
