The NCCGA Central kicked off their first Regional tournament at Adams Pointe in Blue Springs Missouri this past weekend. The weather stayed in the low 70s with a slight breeze, perfect golfing weather.
Adams Pointe tipped out at about 6,800 yards and demanded some length on a few of the holes. It was a very well laid out course which had rolling hills and cut through a forest on the front nine. The conditions were very wet from a previous downpour days before the tournament which caused a few plugged balls and slowed play both days. Overall though the course played tough but fair.
Missouri’s A-team came out on top shooting a combined team score of 785, beating out Missouri’s B-team who took second place by 26 strokes. Rick Weber (Missouri) and David Stein (Iowa State) combined individual low score of 148. The course was unavailable for an official playoff so David Stein was determined the tournament medalist by a scorecard playoff.
The first NCCGA Central Regional of the year was a success at Adams Pointe Golf Club. Our next tournament will be held at Falcon Ridge in Lenexa, Kansas on October 12th and 13th.
