It is hard to believe that the summer is over and the northeast golfing season will soon be coming to a close. The NHC/NEPGA last Pro am of the season is a sign of that. Another pretty nice fall day greeted the 25 teams (100 Players) for an 11am shotgun start. The sun was not shining and it did slightly rain a couple of times, but other than that it was a good day on the golf course.
Todays team format was a 1 BB Gross & 1 BB Net combined score, couldn’t be the same ball. Todd Rollins and his team from Laconia shot a 12 under 132 to take first place. Todd’s playing partners were Jim Moodie, Tim Callahan, and Tim French. Second place went to the team from SNHU led by Matt Arvanitis and teammates Dave Perry, Kevin Hobbs, and Derek Jensen. The came in with an 11 under 133.
The pro contest saw two players tie for first place. Matt Arvanitis of SNHU and Sam Cody of Stonebridge both shot even par 72’s. Matt Delois of About Golf shot a 1 over 73 to come in 3rd place. Todd Rollins of Laconia shot 74 to end up in 4th place. Four players shot 75 to tie for 5th place. Allison Mitzel of Laconia, Jon Ellis of The Oaks, and Jay Pollini of Ridgewood were those players. Chris Mowers of Nippo Lake shot 76 to end up in 8th place. Eric Sandstrum of Keene, Sam Read of Den Brae, Todd Prescott of Portsmouth, and Chris Houston of Laconia all shot 78 to tie for 9th place.
This concludes the 2022 NHC/NEPGA Pro am series. The Davis & Towle/Central Insurance NHC Player of the year went down to the wire this year. Sam Cody of Stonebridge edged out Pollini of Ridgewood by 2.43 points to with that award. Congratulation to Sam and Jay for having a great battle down the stretch.
