Member and Course News
We are so honored to take some time this week to talk about two of our members and their recent accomplishments, Sean Knapp and Nathan Smith, are considered two of the best amateur golfers in this part of the state. Together, they won the Palmer Cup September 17th!
The two of them tee’d up against Bob Ford (director of golf at Oakmont Country Club) and his successor Devin Gee. Bob Ford is arguably one of the best club professional in the country! Sean and Nathan, built a pretty strong lead in the first few holes, that the pro’s just couldn’t catch up to. By the end of the day Knapp and Smith finished with four birdies, and no bogeys, While their competitors made just two birdies, and two bogeys. (Impressive!)
Also, on September 10th Knapp won the 30th annual Mid-Amateur Championship for the record breaking 9th time! He played an awesome 18 holes, making 5 birdies, and 3 bogeys for a total score of 70.
Sean Knapp and Nathan Smith will be inducted into the West Penn Golf Association Hall of Fame, October 14th at Chartiers Country Club. We are so proud to call them our members!
Also in course news….
Our aeration of the fairways will continue Monday the 28th and Tuesday the 29th.
We understand that only having 9 holes open is not ideal, but this process will help reduce compaction, reduce thatch and also help prevent disease. We appreciate your understanding during this process and for your consideration we will be offering special rates during these days.
