Falmouth CC Defends Title at Senior Club Team
BELGRADE LAKES – It’s been quite the run for a few seniors from Falmouth CC in the last week, as Len Cole, Tom Ellsworth, Gary Manoogian, and Cash Wiseman have won two straight team events in MSGA Senior Tour and Weekend play. The group of four golfers played in an MSGA Senior Tour event on Monday at Point Sebago GC and shot a blistering 60. Three of the four were also part of a team that shot 59 at Sugarloaf GC last weekend.
Competing together again today at Belgrade Lakes GC in the Senior Club Team Championship, the quartet from Falmouth CC went on another birdie bender in the best two-of-four ball event, carding a score of 130 (-12) to win this title for the second straight year. They shot an amazing score of -10 on Belgrade’s front nine before adding two more birdies on the back to edge the early round leaders. Finishing just one stroke back at 131 (-11) were Ron Dery, Scott Dewitt, Mike O’Brien, and Keith Patterson from Biddeford-Saco CC.
Finishing in third were Jack Burt, Tim Estabrook, Tom Frey, and Peter Hughes from Penobscot Valley CC, tied with Gene Ardito, Dave Bucci, Ken Olmstead, and Charlie Tartre from Portland CC. Both teams shot a score of 136 (-6).
On the net side, Gorham CC won the team title, with John Allen, Mike Arsenault, Jim Caron, and Craig Lapierre firing a score of 118 (-24).
