The Club At Morgan Hill: An Extreme Golf Challenge!

The Club At Morgan Hill   Easton, PA  05-24-14

The Club At Morgan Hill in Easton, PA hosted the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro) on Saturday May 24th, 2014. Fifty-two tour players in five flights competed on a sunny and breezy afternoon on the challenging golf course.  The Club At Morgan Hill, which dates from 2004, was designed by Kelly Blake Moran. An extreme test of golf, there is hardly a level lie to be found at Morgan Hill. Well bunkered fairways and green complexes combined with fast undulating greens wreaked havoc on most of the field; birdies were few and far between. No two holes are the same at Morgan Hill but every hole presents unique challenges.

In the CHAMP Flight, GWAT Tidweater (Virginia) member Ryan Nolan bested a foursome with an 81 (39-42) from “the tips”. Philly Metro member Andrew Neal was 2-strokes behind at 83 (42-41).

The A Flight victory went to Mark Monkhouse, who posted a fine round of 78 (40-38) to beat the field by a six-stroke margin. This was Mark’s first win on tour. Mark’s round included 2 birdies, including the difficult Par 4 17th hole. New member Michael Peters was in 2nd place with and 84 (42-42); Kyle Mazza also shot an 84 (41-43)  and took 3rd place on a match of cards.

In the B Flight, Joe Volpe won his first event on tour (83, 41-42) with a four-stroke victory over veteran Jay Barnica (87, 48-39). Joe’s round included a fine birdie on the Par 4 16th hole. Barnica “found his game” on the back-nine to secure 2nd place. Kevin Martyn, who chipped in for birdie on the difficult downhill Par 3 7th hole, held on to take 3rd place with a round of 88 (41-47)

The C Flight champion was John Daly, who went around in 93 (46-47). Daly won by one-stroke over the defending C Flight Champion Dave Neder (94, 42-52). Neder ran into some difficult lies on his back-nine that led to back-to-back “triple bogeys” which derailed his title hopes.

In the D Flight, George Adams  (104, 48-56) won the head-to-head battle against fellow D Flight competitor Bruce Vander Voort (108, 51-57). This was George’s second consecutive victory.

The event raised $60.00 for the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour’s charity partner, Stand Up 2 Cancer.
Special thanks to Head Golf Professional Patrick Murphy and his staff at The Club At Morgan Hill for their help with the golf tournament. We found course conditions to overall be very good.

The tour moves on to Shawnee Country Club at Shawnee Resort, along the Pennsylvania-New Jersey border in Shawnee On Delaware, PA. The tournament date is June 14, 2014.
