Wallace Wade, Lou Parducci, Greg Ricker and Jeff Carney enjoy the lovely French Creek Golf Club

French Creek Golf Club - A Chester County Gem - 08-19-17

French Creek Golf Club in Elverson, PA hosted the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro) on Saturday August 19th, 2017.  A Gil Hanse design, French Creek opened in 2003 in the heart of bucolic Chester County. Hanse designed French Creek with minimal environmental disturbance allowing the site to remain rich in beauty and dramatic terrain. Flowing brooks, woodlands and natural golf hazards offer a challenging and relaxing round of golf for players of all skill levels. A Par 71, the course requires numerous forced-carries over wetlands and other natural hazards.


In the Championship Flight, Owen Brown (77, 37-40) edged Alex Hargaden (78, 40-38) and Steve Barry (78, 34-44) by one-stroke.  Barry scorched the front-nine with a birdie-EAGLE-birdie stretch on holes 2 through 4, but fell behind as Brown played a steadier back-nine to edge his fellow competitors. CHAMP Flight played from the GOLD Tees at 6,522 yards.


The A Flight victory went to new member Swede Backhus (81, 37-44) by one-stroke over Carl Handwerk (82, 39-43).  Josh Numbers (84, 41-43) was another two-strokes back in 3rd place. The A Flight played a GOLD/BLUE Combo Tee set at 6,382 yards.

In the B Flight, Richard Mariner (78, 39-39) ran away from the field with his best yet round “on tour” for a six-stroke win over Jeff Carney (84, 43-41).  Mariner’s round includes five birdies!  Tom Brennan (86, 45-41) and Lou Parducci (86, 43-43) were another two-strokes back; Brennan took 3rd place on a match-of-cards. The B Flight played BLUE Tees at 6,260 yards.

The C Flight victory went to Ted Mazurek (84, 42-42) by four-strokes over Joe Schulle (88, 43-45) and Zach Davis (88, 42-46). Mazurek has won two consecutive events. Schulle took 2nd place and Davis 3rd on a match-of-cards. C Flight played from a BLUE/WHITE Combo Tee set at 6,027 yards.


The D Flight VICTORY went to Rob Kerr (95, 48-47) by one-stroke over Sean Matthews (96, 44-52). Kerr has won two consecutive events.  The D Flight also played the BLUE/WHITE Combo Tee set at 6,027 yards

French Creek Golf Club had been softened by overnight rains and though wet in spots, the course was in fantastic condition and scoring was impressive. There were 44 Birdies and 1 Eagle made by the tournament participants. The weather was bright and sunny throughout the day. Thanks to Head Golf Professional Justin Riegel and his staff for a tremendous day of tournament golf.


The tour moves on to Manufacturers Golf & Country Club in Ft. Washington, PA, for a tournament on Monday August 28th, 2017. This challenging course features rolling terrain and many great holes. This will be our fourth time returning to this great private country club – hope to see you!
