2018 IS A WRAP !!

The 2018 NENSGA season is now in the books. It was a 17 Tournament season with only a couple of weather hiccups. Your Board of Directors will now begin to plan the 2019 Campaign in earnest. We hope to have the schedule set and the mailings out by mid February. This year we will go back to having 1 first come sign up period as we had in the past. So, plan your strategy with your partner now so as to be on top of getting your entries in as soon as possible. Remember, the entry forms will be mailed as soon as your membership applications and dues are returned . We WILL NOT accept membership applications prior to the mailing. We also WILL NOT post the schedule until after the mailings are sent out. That way, everyone has an equal opportunity to get their entries turned in. The only way we can be fair about this whole process is First in, First on the list and so forth. Please enter all you want to play even if you think you can not get in. We had almost all Tournaments go down 4 or more stand-by teams that ended up getting a spot. Some Tournaments went 7 or 8 deep.

The 2018 NENSGA Senior Cup Winner was Leon Bender! He won a play-off With past winner and partner Bill Nickeson to secure his 2nd Championship. If you see Leon , please congratulate him on an outstanding season. Of interest is the fact that the top 10 places were separated by a mere 35 points!

Thanks to all our Members for your support and we hope to see you ALL next season.

A Heavy Heart

It is with a heavy heart that I bring this news to you. A long time NENSGA member will not be with us this coming year.

Milt Palas passed away this winter. Most of you knew Milt and his partner Erv Fuchser, and everyone enjoyed them a great deal. They also had a smile and a handshake for anyone. I smile when I recall their standing bet with Dean Meyer and Larry Bartscher, good for a beer after each tournament to the low team. Milt will be greatly missed by anybody who was lucky enough to cross his path!

There is also good news to share, Bill Zeisler will be back with us this year after a long struggle with some health issues. He will take up where Milt left off and pair with Erv in the 2018 campaign. Many of you know Bill and remember him as one of our NENSGA Cup winners. I for one look forward to shaking Bill’s hand a welcome him back to our NENSGA Family.

The 2017 Campaign in The Books, Very Successful Season Again

The 2017 season is now history. The conclusion was delayed a week due to inclement weather, but the re-schedule at Wayne was a Great Day.

Leon Bender is your 2017 NENSGA SENIOR CUP CHAMPION with a play-off win over prior Champion Gary Schoepf. Very exciting finish just as we always hope for. There were 11 players that could have cashed in on the 5 placings!! Congratulations to Leon, and to the other 4 members who cash in.

We have up-dated the NENSGA CUP final points standings for your viewing pleasure on that page on the Web. The fall meetings have begun, and a tremendous amount of progress has already been made on the 2018 Schedule as well as other issues that needed attention. There will be some changes next year, so please pay careful attention to the Members Letter that will be sent along with the 2018 Membership application. Those should go out in The middle of January, and the entry forms will go out as usual as soon as the 2018 Membership apps are received.

We hope you all have a safe off season. The entire Board Of Directors wishes everyone a Blessed Christmas Season, and hope to see you all next Spring!!!


Schedule Change, Tatanka Recap


Tatanka was again a real treat for NENSGA members. We played under Ideal conditions on a very fast track. As usual, the scenery was spectacular and 118 NENSGA members enjoyed a beautiful day.

Our next event is a new venue for us at Oakland Golf Club in Oakland, Ne. on Sept.11th. We have some openings left and are presently at about 100 players.The course is a fine 18 hole established Course and very well maintained. Please contact Bill Schuele if you want to sign up. Have a great Labor Day Holiday, and be safe.

Eldorado up this Monday

Randolph was another success story. The Course was in good shape in spite the the intense heat of the prior week, and the meal was very good as well. We really enjoy Ted Stubbs and the Staff as they do an excellent job hosting NENSGA every year.

Eldorado is up this coming Monday, and all reports are that the greens are as good as anyone can remember. We look forward to another competitive tournament.

The NENSGA Cup Points are current thru Randolph, so check out your standing. Remember, payment goes to the top 5 point earners throughout the Season. It is great to win the Cup, but do not forget to keep in the top 5 to win some extra cash at the season finale.

Stay well, drive safe, and we will see you in Norfolk on Monday.
