Sycamore wins the inaugural interclubAugust 18, 2018 
The Inaugural MVGA Interclub teed off this past April with eight clubs playing each other to determine the top four teams.  Those top four clubs then proceeded into a Match Play Championship.  In the Semi Finals, NCR defeated Sugar Valley 10.5 to 1.5 and Sycamore Creek narrowly defeated Piqua 6.5 to 5.5.

The finals where held this past Tuesday and Sycamore Creek solidly defeated NCR to capture the first title 10.5 to 1.5.

But the real story is not that Sycamore Creek won the title, and the little Green Jug that they will keep in their clubhouse until next year.  No, the real story is how the Club embraced these matches.   

Over these nine matches, which featured both net and gross contests, they had over forty different players involved.  They say it takes a village and Sycamore Creek had a great village.  

Thanks to all those who took part in these Matches, We're sure season two will only get better!
The Senior Metropolitan and Mid Am will be held at Miami Valley Golf Club on Tuesday, September 4 and Wednesday, September 5.  Tee Times will begin at 8am and run until late morning or early afternoon.  

There are four divisions of play.  Mid Am (25-49) Overall Senior (50 & Over) and Ages 64-74 & 75 and Older.

SIPE and COVER both shoot 152 at the US MEN AMATEUR 
We're sure both gentlemen would have preferred a better number to make it into the top sixty four.  However, a week in Monterrey and playing Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill will be a lifetime highlight for them no matter how far they go in the game.

The Semi Finals are today and get underway at noon on Fox.

Austin Sipe Behind 18 Green at PBGL
We all hate it, yes even our course turf leadership and crews who perform the task.  But it is a fundamental need for our golf courses.  Generally most courses start to complete this task in late August, September or October and they do everything there resources allow to get the greens back in shape as quickly as they can.
