Tournament Results

2023 DWGA Bash to the Beach
Ocean CityGolf Club & Plantation Lakes Golf & Country Club
     May 15th & 16th

Another Bash to the Beach in the books, and thankfully mother nature cooperated this year!  There was a little confusion on Day 2 with scorecards and scoring, however we did review all the scorecards after the fact and although there were some math errors and in one case gross & net scores entered were reversed on one hole; none made a difference in the standings as announced.

2022 Senior Amateur Championship
Newark Country Club
June 27

Thanks to Matt Bonanno and the entire Newark CC Staff, for hosting the 2022 Senior Amateur Tournament.  The support was wonderful, and we appreciated their offer to store our clubs overnight.

The weather didn’t cooperate on Day 1, and it became a 27 holes tournament instead of 36 holes. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperative spirit as we attempted to keep everyone safe! 

Unfortunately, we didn’t have anyone lucky enough to win the $5K Hole-In-One prize, but we all had fun trying!  We are very appreciative to the Dupre Keating Group for their generous sponsorship!
