The SGL is introducing a new special event included in the spring 2016 schedule called the “Wigwam Warriors”. This 3 tournament series will consist in playing all three Wigwam scheduled courses (2/6-Gold, 3/12-Patriot & 4/16-Heritage) and having the best net scoring average over all three events. The $25 entry fee can be paid on-line and is open to all active members and also will count double points towards your qualification to this year’s 2016 Tony Albrecht SGL Cup Championship.

SGL scores another AGA Championship .....

The team of Richard Carroll, Steve Richter and Dave Dean combined to take home the Arizona Golf Association’s 2015 Senior Cup Series. The Senior Cup Series is comprised of 10 events throughout the summer using a four-ball stroke play format to qualify the top 80 of the over 300 competitors for the championship. This year’s championship team of Carroll and Dean accumulated 50 points under Stableford scoring at the Encanterra Country Club to secure the win. This is the second time in the last 4 years that Richard has won the championship, who back in 2012 teamed with Kim Snyder for the title.

SGL Summer Series .....

For the first time, the Saturday Golf League will have a playoff for the summer season. In past years, the SGL has only booked a few events during the summer months to keep the hard core golfers satisfied during the wait for the regular season to begin in September. This summer a full calendar of 10 events along with 2 playoff events were scheduled due to increased interest and participation. A total of 35 players qualified for the finals and will compete for $500 which will be contested in 2 consecutive weeks using a 2 flight format. Qualifications for the SGL Summer Series involved playing in at least 25% of the scheduled events along with being an active member of the league. Seeding points for the finals were based on the accumulated SGL points over the summer in combination with events played and flight wins. Final Round Results

The 2014-2015 Tony Albrecht Cup Results .....

Over the last four weeks in May, Saturday Golf League members played for more than $2,000 in prize money during the annual SGL Tony Albrecht Cup. The tournament took place over four weeks at Troon Golf locations Lookout Mountain, Ocotillo, Whirlwind Devil’s Claw and Ak-Chin Southern Dunes. In the first flight Dan Gallegos won three weeks in a row before having a tough final round which nearly cost him the victory. Jim B. finished a close second only 10 points behind Dan. Steve Richter and John Wilhelm finished third and fourth respectively.

The second flight provided more intrigue as the top four were closely grouped headed into the final round. Erston Senger, who qualified at the bottom of the flight and was in fourth position headed into the final round played great golf at Southern Dunes and won the flight. Joe G. finished second. Dave Dean and Val LeChuga finished third and fourth respectively.

Paul “Mick” Mickela won the third flight by playing great golf over the last three Saturdays. Mick finished with a first place and two seconds over that time. Oscar Delgado and Margaret Storms finished in a tie for second with Oscar winning the tie break. Margaret was awarded third and Steve Ballard awarded fourth place.

Morrissey Crowned 2015 Match Play Champion in Rematch......


The 2015 match play results are in for the season and there can only be one. This year we had 11 players competing in the double elimination bracket for the prize of $160 for 1st place. Jeff Morrissey pulls out the win this year by defeating Jim Bieleniewicz in a rematch during the championship round. In the championship playoff round for the title (round 8 at Toka Sticks), Jim defeated Jeff with a match score of 4 up with 2 holes left. Since round 8 was Jeff’s 1st loss in the match play double elimination bracket, a rematch was required at Orange Tree Golf Resort since now Jim and Jeff both had only 1 match game loss. At Orange Tree Golf Resort, Jeff pulls off a 2 up and 1 hole left for the win over Jim. Congratulations to Jeff for his win!! Jim Bieleniewicz takes 2nd place for a $40 prize. Mick Mickela walks away with the 3rd place prize of $20. Thanks for all who participated in the match play tournament and look forward to next years event. Bracket.  Results R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, Final

 

 

Team SGL wins inaugural match play competition…..


The golf Gods were with us for the first Cup Challenge between the Valley Golf Association and the Saturday Golf League at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale. The 16 Ryder Cup type matches were closely contested; with the SGL taking home the Cup. Captains Tom Hecocks and Dave Dean were both pleased with how this first of hopefully many future events turned out and with a few tweaks should be bigger and better next time. Outstanding performances were put together by Danny Campos of the VGA and Dan Gallegos of the SGL who easily won their matches. The SGL gets the right to hold “The Cup” until the next competition and also to pick next year’s venue.  Photo Album
