Golfin’ FaGowees ! Our 3 Person Scramble
Golfin’ FaGowees – July CMSC Golf Tourney
Under tropical conditions at Punderson State Park Golf Course, twenty-three Fagowees battled for their first Metro Cup Championship trophy, in the closest competition to date.
Congratulations to all participants, who fell just short of their championship goal, edged by Hi-Rise Ski Club, finishing second by five points.
Team Captain Erik F’s controversial and divisive strategy to limit participants in team events, and maximize entrants in singles (medalist) play, was validated by an exceptionally strong showing in both the Male and Female Medalist events. Coupled with a second place finish by Esther and Mitch in Coed Scramble, third place finish by Rob and Neal in Best Ball, and a fourth place finish by the lone Four Person Scramble team, the team total exceeded expectation, nearly besting Hi-Rises 29 member team, but secured second place (by 6 points) over Continental Ski Cub team which included 23 participants, just like us.
Led by a first place finish by Patti Matzinger, the six member Women’s’ Medalist team scored 22 points, nearly half of the available points, and led all other Fagowee teams in scoring
The seven Men’s’ Medalists more than held their own, scoring seventeen points, buoyed by Tom C’s third place finish. Although participation in Medalist play was an unpopular decision, the spirit of team play in the face of tough conditions and competition shined through. There is strength in numbers.
The torrid heat, fast greens, late day thunder, lightning, and monsoon rains proved a true test of golf and stamina. Everyone survived, and enjoyed the post-golf dinner and awards ceremony. Our own Mark Hyatt was lucky off the course, with his double raffle winnings.
Individual skill shots were won by the following from the Fagowees.
# 9 pin shot Karen Fashimpaur, #14 long drive women Yvonne Daycak and # 10 pin shot Ester Daniels.
Congratulations to the perennial winner, Hi-Rise Ski Club, and especially to Dr. Bob and his crew for again organizing a fun and exciting event.
Your participation in next years’ Metro Cup, and all golf events, is welcomed and encouraged, regardless of your golf skill. Changes for the 2020 Metro Cup venue, scoring, and team events are open for suggestion, and will be discussed in an upcoming organizational meeting involving all Team captains. Please contact Erik F with your comments and ideas.
FAGOWEES stands for Fun and Games on Week Ends Especially Skiing, and is pronounced Fuh-Gow-eez. We’re a 21 and over club that does a lot!
We organize events and trips throughout the year. If you’re a competitive skier or boarder of any skill level, we participate in the Cleveland Metro Ski Council (CMSC). This is an organization that provides an organized racing schedule where we compete against several other Cleveland Ski Clubs over the course of the winter skiing season. The races are held at several resorts in Ohio and New York.
We need racers! If you’ve ever raced NASTAR, give us a try. You’ll be part of team as well as competing for yourself.
If recreational skiing is more your speed, all FaGowees members are welcome at all events, racing or not. We even go out west at least once a season! Even people who don’t like the cold find the FaGowees a great club. We have social events of many kinds all year long. From winery trips and tailgate parties to boating and camping, you’ll find things you love to do with a great bunch of people! We meet twice a month just south of Cleveland in Parma, from I-480 (State Rd exit south) or from I-77 (Pleasant Valley Rd exit west).
We meet at the VFW Post 1974, 4305 Woodrow Ave, Parma (between State Rd & W 54th), 44134
Give us a call for more information at: 530-FAG-OWEE (324-6933).
We meet the first and third Tuesday of every month from October through May. Just the third Tuesday of the month from June through September. In the summer months we also have an informal gathering “meeting” on the first Tuesday of the month at a local watering hole. Check the Happening for details.
