Keith Hills Golf Course
February 15, 2024
Campbell University in Lillington welcomed the Central Carolina Senior Amateur Golf Tour to play their Keith Hills Golf Course on Thursday February 15th. It was cool and breezy, and that added to the challenge of Keith Hills.
In the Champ flight, it was Trent Gregory turning in a round of 74 to make it back to back wins. Well done Trent! Eli Villanueva took second place with a score of 77, while Spurling Cook grabbed third place by carding a round of 79. Ken Eichele’s round of 87 gave him a fourth place finish, and Chris Johnson from the Eastern NC Tour rounded out the top five posting 91.
Eighteen holes of golf was insufficient to determine a winner in the B flight as Mark Harper, Brock Lynch, and Dave Baldwin all recorded identical rounds of 78 forcing a sudden victory playoff. So the players loaded up and rolled out to hole one. Brock and Dave made par on the first hole, but apparently Mark had enough fun for the day and rolled in a putt for birdie for the victory. Great job Mark! Bo Crooks posted 80 in a fourth place finish, while Jim Reardon grabbed fifth place with an 81.
In the B flight, Malcolm Stout eaked out a single shot victory by carding a score of 82. Kudos Malcolm! Dennis Mason became the runner up with his round of 83, while Dick Kuehl and Dan Caffelle ended the day T3 as both competitors shot scores of 86. Fifth place was a three way tie as Dan Johnson, Gene Jones, and Gil Ro all recorded scores of 87.
The C flight saw Mark Keziah get off to a fast start and then cruise to a seven shot victory by firing an 84. Great golfing Mark! Steven Wrenn from the Eastern NC Tour wrapped up the runner up slot with his round of 91, while Rob Geilhausen and Mike Groom had a T3 finish with rounds of 92. Rounding out the top five, Dan Williams from the Eastern NC Tour and Mark Jochum from the Columbus OH Tour turned in scores of 93.
In the D flight, Benton Smith also caught fire early and rolled to a six stroke victory as he carded a nice round of 86. Way to go Benton! Kelly Brown is today’s runner up in the flight with a score of 92, while Tom Kubla and Richard Pfister ended their day T3 posting scores of 95. TD Sola Edwards wrapped up the top five by carding 98.
Next up for the Central Carolina Senior Amateur Golf Tour will be Longleaf Golf & Family Club in Southern Pines on Tuesday March 5th with a 9:00am shotgun start. Sign up early to claim your spot.
Quail Ridge Golf Course
February 10, 2024
On Saturday February 10th, the Central Carolina Senior Amateur Golf Tour rolled into Sanford to take on the fabulous Golf Club at Quail Ridge. The course was/is in great shape, and the weather was very warm but windy at times adding to the challenge of golf.
In the Champ flight, Trent Gregory fired an excellent even par round of 72 to take the victory. Well done Trent! Mike Gentry was runner up just a single shot back with his great round of 73. Eli Villanueva placed third shooting 74, while Ken Eichele shot a round of 80 for the fourth place finish.
In the A flight, eighteen holes of regulation golf could not produce a winner as TD Chuck Smith and Ron Brady recorded matching scores of 82. By tour rule, an on course sudden victory playoff must determine the winner so Chuck and Ron made their way to the first tee. It was a short playoff this day as Chuck calmly rolled in a putt for par that Ron was unable to cover giving Chuck the victory. Great job Chuck! Ron was the obvious runner up, while Ron Hockensmith grabbed third place with his round of 83. Chris Rowland snagged fourth by carding an 89, and Jim Reardon rounded out the top five with a score of 91.
The B flight also needed extra holes to determine a winner as three players posted rounds of 83. So Jamie Rogalski, Ben Martin, and Gene Jones followed the A flight playoff to the first hole to get it on. Again it was a short playoff as Jamie made par on hole one that neither Ben nor Gene could match. Kudos Jamie! Since Ben and Gene were T2, Dennis Mason’s 84 became fourth place, while Dan Johnson posted 85 to complete the top five. Meanwhile Lee Jouglard snagged sixth place with a round of 86.
In the C flight, no playoff was required as Keith Meeks posted a great round of 83 to take a four shot victory. Good shooting Keith! Runner up Rob Geilhausen fired a round of 87, while Scott Phillips finished third with a score of 92. Ed McNally, and Mark Jochum from the Columbus OH Tour, carded matching 93’s in their T4 finish.
The D flight saw Tom Kubla follow his win at Hyland with a round of 89 to record back to back victories. Way to go Tom! TD Sola Edwards posted the runner up score of 92, while Benton Smith placed third with his round of 93. Kelly Brown turned in a score of 96 taking the fourth place spot, and Richard Pfister rounded out the top five shooting 97.
The next event for the Central Carolina Senior Tour is taking place on the great course of Campbell University in Lillington on Thursday February 15th. I hope you don’t miss this one.

Ron Brady pulled off a single shot victory in the A flight with his round of 79. Great job Ron!

Kenneth Beckett from the Southern Virginia Tour produced a round of 85 for fifth place and Jamie Rogalski placed sixth by shooting an 87.
Greg Martin put together a round of 85 in the C flight which allowed him to hang onto a single shot victory.

Dan Keddie from the Charlotte Tour and Rob Geilhausen posted matching rounds of 92 to end the day T4.
In the D flight, Tom Kubla managed to hang on to a small lead just long enough to snag the single shot victory with a score of 88.
