Today, I just played an awesome course on the Black Sea in Bulgaria called Thracian Cliffs. I thought I would send some pictures as several of the VGA members that knew I was going asked me to send pictures. You can post if you want. Thanks, Ron Amstutz. Here’s a web link to the resort. Awesome http://www.thraciancliffs.com/

Another VGA golfer gets a Hole in One.

Tom Hecocks
Tommy “No shoes” Hecocks is back in town and added a Hole in One on #16 at ASU Karsten to his golf memorabilia. Due to a low spot where the pin is placed, Tom didn’t get to see his ball go in but low and behold there it was. Sweet!

VGA Golfers are talented fishermen too

Tom Giljum, avid VGA golfer and avid fisherman has acquired a Nirvana of sorts. He golfs with VGA on many occasions all the while living in Rocky Point in Mexico, where he catches fish like the Grouper shown. All this a mile from his home in Mexico. Does it get any better than this?

Jim passed away yesterday at 11:30 Am. He was hospitalized and did not recover from the effects of pneumonia and old age. I’ve met a few people in my time, but never any as nice and personable as this gentle soul. He will be missed by all that knew him. It was his wishes to be cremated and have no funeral. If that changes I will pass it along. VGA expresses condolences to his family and friends. I cannot imagine your sorrow. RIP Jim, March 23rd, 2016

Mesquite Invitational played the 16th and 17 of July 2014 in Mesquite, Nevada. For more Mesquite Golf info click here. We played four rounds; Monday, the Palmer in Mesquite, Tuesday, Sand Hollow in Utah, Wednesday, Wolf Creek in Mesquite, and Thursday, Falcon Ridge in Mesquite. The courses in Mesquite are in the canyons while Sand Hollow is more open, but does have some interesting holes along a mesa bordering the Virgin River. The highlight of the trip was Wolf Creek, which we played at 5798 yards, and a slope of 134. But the scenery was worth it. After four rounds, Larry Burton and Neal Fisel tied for first place with a net score of 274. A good time was had by all and we are looking forward to doing it again next year.
