The final awards scramble was held on Sunday, September 12th. Sue Gordon, our NGC Board President gave the opening remarks, and then awards were presented to the winners of the major tournaments held during the year. After the ceremony celebrating our 2021 winners, those present played a fun 18 hole scramble. Players were treated to delicious grilled burgers and hot dogs at the turn, with Kevin Nickerson wearing the grillmaster’s hat. The Scramble Tournament will be covered in a following blog post – Part 2.
There was also a very special award this year. Terry Whitney read a proclamation from the Board of Directors, highlighting extraordinary service by Ken Gordon. Ken is the volunteer project manager for the new maintenance building, and has been instrumental in getting the project done. Ken was presented with the “Claude E. Clement Award for Meritorious Service”.
Terry and Jeff Dutch also presented the special plaque that will hang in the clubhouse, highlighting the many members and patrons whose generous donations made the new maintenance building a reality.
We then moved to the awards presentation for our 2021 season winners. Terry Whitney announced the winners and Robb Herron presented the trophies. A list of winners follows. In addition to the tournament winners, Terry W announced the Player of the Year – congratulations Mark Wallace! Elaine Bielenberg & Paul Doody were named Most Improved for the 2021 season. Hole-in-One commemorations went to John O’Neill, Mike Marshall, and Mike Lannan.

Here are some photos from the awards presentation. Unfortunately, not everyone was able to attend, but we will add photos if we can catch the missing winners at the golf course. Click on one of the photos for a larger version, or to play a slideshow of the winners.
There was one final award, given in the spirit of fun … The Armpit Award goes to the club member who did something particularly notable during the year. There were apparently several contenders, but the winner was Jeff Dutch. The incident involved a missing Keurig coffee maker, but we are not at liberty to provide more details 😊
