Both aces were with the same Judge putter. How about that Harrison Treegoob who went -5 over the last 4 holes to win by 2 strokes! This included an ace on hole #22 with a comet right up the guts.

The Labor Day One & Done Recap

IMG_4327

The weather was great all weekend in the high 80’s with little to no humidity. We had 35 golfers take part in Monday’s One & Done Tournament hosted by Jason Coef and the FSW gang. We played to set a new course record on 28 holes (27 blues plus the field hole across the street) using only 1 disc. If you were to lose your disc or somehow break it, you would be eliminated from the tournament although we were fortunate to not see this happen.

We had 3 in the ladies division and Miss Anne won with a blue buzzz in 97 throws. We had a begginers division and Ken takes it down with a 97. The largest field was in the Intermediate division where Terry Ruth beat out 11 others with a 74. We only had 4 guys in the Advanced division and it was Glenn Funkhouser taking it down in 76 strokes. Andy King sure likes his new Discraft Ace Race disc and he won the Masters division by 5 strokes with it shooting a 75.

Jake Azato was a favorite coming into the day after posting earlier in the week of a -16 from the 18 Blues with his Nova putter. However Jake and TD Jason Coefer settled for a second place tie at -14. Congratulations to our Labor Day One & Done pro winner, Stu Kaplan. Stu set the current course record for 28 holes with one disc at -17 using a blue Innova XD.

CTP’s on 1, 18 and across the street were won by Jake, King and Caleb. We had $105 in the Ace Pot and no one hit it so the winner was determined by Ring of Fire. After a few attempts it was Venose’ disc remaining in the bucket of 18 and making him the big money winner of the day.

During the event you could smell Rome’s ribs all the way from hole #5 and once we were all ‘Done’ from our ‘One’ we were treated by the FSW kitchen Crew to a taco bar with chicken and pork.

Special Thanks to Jason Coef for taking the initiative to put together what turned out to be a great day and a fun event enjoyed by all. The bar has been set at -17 and this should be a regular challenge held at least once a year moving forward seems to be the general consensus. Stu K, Andy, Anne, Rome and anyone who helped with registration or scoring we thank you. Bush, Grizz, Anne and anyone who helped with food or just made a nice donation, thank you. These fine folks raised $160 for the club. Great efforts, guys!

IMG_4340

Don’t forget this Saturday!
We will have our monthly Volunteer workday from 9 – 12. There’s a lot of trash around the course lately and it would be great to get some good workers to help with that as well as some trimming and possibly a teepad. Shout out to Stu Straw who has been repairing an old riding mower and mowing fairways!

Paid to Play –
Registration for the Annual Milk the Goat tournament will open at noon with a 1pm start time. This is a fun event and great for everyone. It is free to play and if you complete 2 rounds from the short original Sedgley blue layout you will be paid $1 for your efforts by the Old Goat himself. We will be accepting disc and prize donations to award for CTP’s. Pizza Party Hosted by the Friends of Sedgley Woods.

A Hot Summer Sedgley Sunday & the 2016 Ace Race

20160815_111138_1471273914111

It was a scorcher of a weekend here in Philadelphia but that didn’t stop a nice crowd of FSW-ers from taking part in a late summer Sedgley Sunday Fun-Day. Traffic was exceptionally light on the way to Sedgley Woods presumably due to the heat. Normal people are likely to stay indoors where it’s cool and comfortable but Rome, Stu Kaplan, Chris Robbins and others were already on site setting up as golfers rolled in for what would be another great day in the woods.

Dave Woods hosted the 11am weekly Sunday morning Gold Tag Challenge. This was our 93rd tag round of the year. 10-18 red odd blue even, 19-27 blues all long baskets was the call. Knick Knapp takes another victory for the #3 tag. He is now in 3rd place with 307 points. 5 points ahead is John Murphy sitting in second place with 312 points. Murph is only 2 points from our current leader and past champion, Caleb Hoff at 314 points.

Top 30 point holders below:

As players finished their tag rounds and turned in their cards up front they were treated to a huge Sunday lunch. As she often does, Miss Anne had sandwiches and hummus/pita platters for all to enjoy. Becky And Jesse Fast added a special touch this weekend bringing their fresh free range chickens and ‘cooler corn’ straight from their farm.

Hats off to birthday boy & TD Chris Robbins for hosting this years Discraft Ace Race at Sedgley Woods! Thanks to help from Anne and Stu K his event ran flawless. This event sold out at 40 players packs this year. We received under stable mid to fairway drivers this year and overall the players seemed to like them. We played a mix of shortened holes throughout the original 18 and across the street.

After 2 rounds there was a close sweat in the mens division. Alex Caldwell Aced his last two holes to sit up top comfortably. That is until Nate Krahn aced his last hole to match 4 aces but had 6 metals over Alex’s few. Nate is Sedgley’s own Discraft Sponsored player so it was fitting for him to take down the win and in a true gentleman’s fashion he donated the first place bag and discs back to the club. Rev Ray’s daughter, Melissa tied with Jen Griffith with an ace and a metal each for the ladies division. Jeff Golden couldn’t seem to get the hang of the new Ace Race Discs but he managed to sink 3 aces and 3 metals to scoop the ‘throw your own’ side pot.

The ‘Sedgley Saplings’ were out in full force and as expected they all received a visit from Rodwa, our awesome resident Ice Cream lady. Always a treat. Birthday Boy Chris Robbins was presented with cupcakes made by his wife, Amanda and we all joined in for the birthday song. Happy Birthday, CR!

Thanks to everyone’s participation and donations these fine folks were able to raise over $200+ for the club at the end of the day. Contributions like this is what keeps Sedgley Fun Day events going throughout the year. Never take it for granted. Always ask yourself what you could do to contribute. Either by bringing a dish or by throwing a few bucks in the donation jar or simply putting in some volunteer effort in course maintenance. These and other generous efforts are the grease that keeps the Sedgley wheels a rollin’.

Keep in touch via Facebook, the website and on the course – Upcoming events include The August Monthly Sunday the 28th at 10am and the annual Milk-the-Goat Tournament TBA
