Lake View From Dogwoods at Sunset

2016 Dogwoods

Grenada, MS -  Even though it was hot and very humid, it was still a beautiful day for golf at The Dogwoods Golf Course.  Hot conditions didnt seem to bother a few of the players, as they lit the course up!  Thanks to Jeff Sanford, Taylor, and the entire staff for a great job once again! 


Champ Flight - Ed McDugle bounces back from his recent defeat on tour to post a sizzling 67!  Congrats Ed!  Tour rookie Adam Burkett finishes second with a strong 33 on the back nine for a score of 74. One of our guests, Ben Childers finished in 3rd.


A' Flight - Tommy Warren missed one tournament, and it must have done him some good, as he posts a very nice 73 for the win.  Tom McMurdy beat Keith Nuckolls on scorecard playoff for second place.  Both players carded 76.


B' Flight - Another guest, John Pigg turned in an 80 to take first place. Neil Adams came in with 82 for second place with Brandon Sledge one stroke behind in 3rd.


C' Flight - Bill Barker turned in a amazing 78 for the win. Very nice round Bill. Promotion to B' flight coming soon maybe?  Bart Watkins takes 84 strokes for his 18 holes and gets second. M.L. Hill finishes 3rd with 88.


D' Flight - Another lights out score of 83 for D' flight winner Richard Ward. Congrats Richard on your promotion to C' Flight!  Great score Richard. Second place went to our guest from Arkansas tour, Mark Murphy, with an 87.  Darrell Harris grabbed 3rd with a 90.   

Our next tournament is at Tunica National in Tunica, MS on June 25th.  Tee times start at 9 am.  Pay for entire tournament (entry and side games) online please.
