2022 MPGA / West Side Seniors Team Competitions

MPGA Teams General Information

The Fox Hollow Men’s Club (FHMC) is a member of the Minnesota Public Golf Association (MPGA).  The MPGA conducts a number of competitions during the year including match play matches between clubs.  FHMC competes in the 20-Man, 16-Man and Senior 8-Man matches.  The matches are always played at scratch (no handicap) so the captains are always looking for lower handicap players who are interested in competing.  Senior players need to be age 55 or older to compete.

FHMC is also a  member of the West Side Seniors League which is a collection of clubs that conduct events at each of the member clubs throughout the season.  Players must be age 50 or older to compete in this league.  Each club brings an 8 man team, 6 of which play scratch and 2 play with handicap.  The Captain will look for appropriate players to make up each team.

Senior 8-Man Schedule and Results

Tuesday May 3rd: Fox Hollow vs Meadowbrook @ Fox Hollow

Well I believe we are set for May 3rd at Fox Hollow. The first tee time is at 12:57 with the Sack man and Hop along Horvath, new to the Senior 8 man circuit.
We will follow with the dynamic duo and all stars Mark the “Batman” Ferber and Ken the “Boy Wonder” Pratley. I would like to then have the team of Joe “the only Doctor at North” Sicora and John “Sasquatch” Dodd. It all depends on whether the only doctor at North can leave in time?? I would prefer he not come in hot.
That leaves your Captain Stone Cold Bad Bob and Gordy “Tenniel” Martin to bring home the sweep! We will be playing Meadow brook and it will not be an easy task! I hope to get off to a great start with a victory at home.
Until then may the gales of spring whip us into shape,
 Captain Stone Cold Bad Bob

Tuesday May 17: Fox Hollow @ Meadowbrook

Happy Monday,
I trust you all had a special weekend. Reminder we are at Meadowbrook tomorrow morning with first group off at 9:00 am!
The bold is mostly for Mr. Dodd. Again they do not have a range and the club house is a trailer as far as I remember.
1: Dave Sack / Gary Heitkamp (The warm up band back together)
2: Mark Ferber / Ken Pratley (The dynamic duo)
3: Joe Sicora / John Dodd ( Scarecrow with a brain and The brave lion)
4: Kevin Horvath / Bob Payne ( The Stallion and the Tin man who need oil)
Make to day a great day!
 Your fearless leader!!
Congratulations to my Fox Hollow Senior 8 man team with another hard fought victory! We were at Meadowbrook on a nice spring day. Teeing off early for a few team members didn’t seem to matter.
With the band back together The Sack man & Too far to walk Heitkamp came up with a come from behind victory and 2 points. Mr. Heitkamp with a stellar front man performance with 5 birdies.
Mark The Batman Ferber & Ken the boy wonder Pratley “POW BANG BOOM” to a split and 1.5 points. There is always excitement on the Bat channel!!
 Our team of The only doctor at North and the Sasquatch had a rough day but did gain an important half point. We found out the only Doctor at North should not play 4 days in a row :).
Gordy Tenniel Martin was on another assignment so the Captain took Hop along Horvath for a 4 1/2 hour tour. We found our way for 2.5 points and sealed the victory 6.5 to 5.5 for a wonderful road win.
Our next adventure will be back home at Fox Hollow against Columbia June 7th. Again will be a tough match and important to keep the throttle down. 
Until next time may the winds calm and the weather warm for a special June.
 Your fearless leader
Stone Cold Bad Bob
