Lake Marion

The Charleston golfweek Amateur tour ventured up to Lake Marion for their battle By The Lake Tournament and proceeded to battle it out!

The Championship, A and B flights all went to a playoff.  In the Championship Flight Mike Cobb and Marty Bunch both fired rounds of one under par 71 to tie for the top spot and proceeded to an on course playoff.  On the First hole Marty had a little trouble off the tee and could not go at the green in two whereas Mike hit an Iron to the Par five for a two putt birdie and his second win of the year.  The A flight saw Stephen Kauble and Eric Maland both fire spectacular rounds of 5 over 77’s to tie for first.  Unfortunately Stephen had to leave and Eric was declared the winner; great job by both golfers, coming in third in the A flight was Andy Balao who has won previously at Lake Marion.  In the B flight, Tim Sumption and Myrtle Beach’s Brian Tarte both posted rounds of 83 to tie for the victory.  This playoff was also won on the first hole as Brian made par after Tim was in some trouble.  In the C flight. Mike Flanigan posted one of his best rounds of the year firing a smooth 86 for a four-shot victory over Cleve Johnson and Jack King who both posted solid rounds of 90 to tie for second with Cleve taking the second place over Jack via a scorecard playoff.  In the D flight, Wesley Nichols Parred the 18th to finish one shot in front of Aaron Chase, 93-94.  Overall it was a good day for golf and the course was in good shape after all the rain we received during the week.  Our next local event will be at Seabrooks ocean Winds on Aug 3rd.  This will be a one o’clock shotgun start.  If you would like to play, shoot me a text, email or sign up online. 


The Charleston Tour had their annual Spring social at Crowfield plantation on Sta March 2nd.  The course was in great shape and the weather provided us with the Spring part of the Spring Social. The social part was catered by Irma’s Catering and was fantastic.  Everyone enjoyed the day; the golf was good and getting together is what this tour is all about.  Now for the golf

The Championship Flight fielded one of the strongest fields we have seen over the past two years with some very recognizable names competing.  Their play was strong and it came down to two bad holes for the second-place finisher, Chris Asbel as he posted a 77.  It was Chris Ponds day as he played steady and fired an awesome round of one over par 73 to secure the victory. 

The A Flight also witnessed some very strong play as Tony Walters and Tony Capehart battled it out all day.  The difference in their rounds was hole 18; Capehart’s birdie putt went by the edge and Walters birdie putt found the middle of the hole for a one-shot victory 77-78.  Sean Kenneck, Randy Tame and Jeff Rosier all posted solid 83’s to finish in third place with Sean taking the scorecard playoff.

The B flight seemed more a battle for second place than first as Jerry Mast fired a very nice round of 79 for a three-shot victory over Tim Sumption (82) followed by John Saager’s 84 and Billy Gamblin’s 85 to round out the filed

The C flight saw Chris Huge continue his strong play by firing a nice round of 87 for a three-shot victory over Vincent Ackerman who posted a nice round 90 to finish in second place.

The D flight saw Julie Johnson play a very nice round by posting a strong 92 in the D flight for another three-shot victory over Upstate’s Danny Sullivan who said he enjoyed the course some by the food more!
