Your Scorecard: VGA strives to be accurate and quick in gathering your data as humanly possible. Mistakes can be made. You need to do your part to help, because believe it or not you might make an error too. As it has always been, scorecards must be dated, signed by the scorer, marked for the tees you used and most importantly signed and attested by the cart that is not turning in their card. If your scorecard is not properly filled out it won’t be accepted. If you must leave before the event is calculated and paid out, be double sure you do this. Once the payout is done is it over and history. No changes can be made after the fact. This policy was reviewed by the VGA board at last nights (6/23/2015) meeting. No rule was changed, just reviewed and hope everyone continues to try as hard as possible to be as accurate as they can. Please, once again try to do your part too.

Don Peterson

The Don Peterson’s 2 men Best Ball Event:  an annual Two-Man Best Ball Tournaments for both a Wednesday and a Saturday event.  Golfers that enter the normal VGA event will be ranked by handicap with the lower half labeled A and the upper half labeled B.  The tournament chair will assign pairs for the two-ball tournament, one player from the A-list and one from the B list.  The VGA will post $200 as prize money for both tournaments, $100 for first place, $60 for the second, and $40 for third.  The event is named The Don Peterson Two-Man Best Ball Tournament in honor of our President Emeritus Don Peterson.  The normal VGA event will run in conjunction with best ball tournament.  This year’s tournament schedule is Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 at the Legacy Golf Course and Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at the Legend @ Arrowhead Golf ClubPlease note there is no extra fee for signing up so don’t let money hold you back. “2-Person Best Ball” is a golf format for teams composed of two golfers. Those two golfers play their own golf balls throughout and the lower score between them on each hole counts as the team score. Two-Person Best Ball can be used in tournaments or by any group of four golfers (who want to play 2-vs.-2). 


The Champion of Champions Tournament is a two-day stroke play tournament played on two consecutive Wednesdays and two consecutive Saturdays in the first quarter of the year. The tournament is open to all prior year first place winners of the weekly Wednesday and Saturday VGA events. Wednesday winners compete against Wednesday winners and Saturday winners compete against Saturday winners to determine final competition winners for the overall championship. There is a first, second, and third place winner in both groups determined by the lowest 36 holes net score total. Members can play in both the Wednesday and Saturday competitions if eligible by reason of winning both a Wednesday and Saturday event the prior year.

Final tournament winners for a first, second, and third place are determined in the following manner:  The first place Wednesday champion competes against the first place Saturday champion in one 18 hole match. The low net score of the match determines the first place winner of the overall tournament and is declared Champion of Champions. The loser of the match earns second place in the overall tournament. The third place winner overall is determined in one 18 hole match between the second place winner of the Wednesday group and the second place winner of the Saturday group. As with the match for first place, the match for third place is won by the low net score. The time and place of each final match is to be determined by the competitors but must be played prior to the annual awards dinner.

The entry fee for the competition is $10.00 paid by each participant to the tournament coordinator prior to the first match. No additional fees are required for subsequent matches. The entry fee money is returned to first, second, and third place winners of each group as prize money for their wins. For the overall tournament, The VGA treasury pays $100.00 to the first place winner, $60.00  to the second place winner, and $40.00 to the third place winner at the annual awards dinner. In addition, the Champion of Champions has his/her name added to the trophy and is awarded the trophy for display at the next awards dinner.

The results in the 2017 Champion of Champions: Dan Christiansen, the Saturday champion, won first place by beating Neal Fisel, the Wednesday champion, by a score of 73 to 75.  Neal placed second overall. Bill Heller, the Saturday runner-up, took third place by outscoring Steve Richter, the Wednesday runner-up, by a score of 67 to 73. Congratulations to Dan!
