The Ridge At Back Brook in Ringoes, NJ was the venue for the 2016 season-opening tournament of the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro).  Tour members from the Philly Metro and Metro New York (MNY) Tours competed on the Tom Fazio designed tournament course at this exclusive private club for trophies in 5 flights.

Alex Hargaden  (76, 38-38) took home the trophy in the Championship Flight.  Alex’s steady round included 2 birdies and only 1 score higher than bogey.  Michael Goldfarb (MNY) took 2nd place with a 78 (38-40). New member Andrew Jaskel (79, 41-38) and returning members Gary Greenberg (79, 40-39) and Wes Samons (MNY) (79, 42-37) were in a tie for 3rd place. Samons took 3rdin a match-of-cards.  CHAMP Flight played GOLD Tees at 7,023 yards.

In the A Flight, Tony White (78, 39-39) and Scot Vanisko (MNY) (78, 40-38) finish regulation play tied for the flight victory. In the playoff, both players bogeyed the 1st hole and made par on the 2ndand 3rd holes.  White secured the victory on the 4th playoff hole when Vanisko couldn’t get up-and-down from a fairway bunker. Michael Dupree (79, 38-41) was one stroke out of the playoff in 3rdplace.  A Flight played BLUE Tees at 6,604 yards.

The B Flight tournament was a heated competition decided in a 3-way playoff.  Steve Winnick (81, 43-38), Walter Schmitz (MNY) (81, 41-40), and Chris Moore (81, 41-40) were tied for the lead after regulation play.  In the playoff, Moore made a par on the 1st hole to secure the victory when the other 2 competitors made bogey. Moore’s round included 2 birdies and an eagle on the Par 5 14th hole. Jay Barnica (84, 41-43) was in 4th place. B Flight Played RED Tees at 6,284 yards.

In the C Flight, new member Tim Kelly was the runaway winner.  Kelly’s round included 2 birdies and an eagle on the Par 5 11th hole. Kelly earned a “battlefield promotion” to the B Flight for his next tournament.  Richard Paskman (88, 39-49) took home the 2ndplace prize.  John Son (90, 47-43) and Steve McDonald (MNY) (90, 43-47) were tied for 3rd; Son took the prize on a match-of-cards.  C Flight played SILVER Tees from 6,117 yards.

The D Flight champion was veteran John Stevens (92, 44-48) by one-stroke over defending Flight Champion Sean Matthews (93, 48-45). John’s round included a birdie on the Par 3 8th hole. Kermit Bowen (95, 46-49) took the 3rd place prize.  D Flight played SILVER Tees from 6,117 yards.

Head Golf Professional Travis Deibert and his staff made certain that their championship golf course was in immaculate condition for our event. This was the 3rd year our tour has opened the season at The Ridge At Back Brook.  It was a great Opening Day on a very challenging golf course.
