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!

Also be sure and check that you are signed up for these tournaments by checking on-line at www.nensga .com and clicking on the 2016 Schedule. Then pick the event , and check the roster.

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.

CEDARVIEW AT LAUREL HOSTS 88 PLAYERS

Laurel was the site for 88 NENSGA golfers to compete on a beautiful Nebraska Day. Leroy Hansen and Rob Howell posted a smooth 66 to top the scores. As is always the case, many players shot well, and there were ties everywhere. One putt, a bad chip, an errant tee shot could make the difference.

We are off to Indian Trails at Beemer this coming Thursday. It is always a hilite for me because of the beautiful Course and amazing Scenery. If you have never played this Course, it is a must play in Northeast Nebraska. We still have a few openings, send your entry in today!

The Senior Cup race is coming down the stretch and it looks like 2nd thru 5th places are all in play. Men, there is $$$ to be had, so make sure you are in the remaining Tournaments to give you the best odds of claiming one of the prizes.After Beemer, we have Summerland @ Ewing, Fair Play in Norfolk, Quail run in Columbus, and our finale in Wayne. Drive safe and hope to see you at all these fine venues.

 

A WARM Welcome at ElDorado

Sounds like a good name for a John Wayne Film! It was a warm sticky day, but the Boys from NENSGA shone through as usual. The Course really has come a long way, and it did not give up much. Only a hand full of under Par scores, but as has been the case , many ties and very closely bunched field.

Our next Tournament will be Monday Aug.3rd at Laurel. A very good test of golf and always a great event with excellent food. We will have a large field, so bring your A game. The NENSGA Senior Cup points have been updated, so check out how you stand. There is some widening of the gap at the top, but remember,it’s not over till it is over. Also remember we pay 5 spots at the end of the year, and many of those spots are hotly contested.

Good Luck, Good Golfing, Be safe and we will see you in Laurel Aug. 3rd !!
