     THE MOUNTAIN MAN NATIONAL SENIOR AMATEUR IS ON!  DATES ARE SEPTEMBER 18,19,20       AND WILL BE HELD AT MOUNTAIN GLEN GOLF CLUB IN NEWLAND, NC.  Newland is next door to Linville,  5 minutes from Banner Elk, 25 minutes west of Boone.  Mountain Glen is a wonderful golf course in a valley that was once a farm with mountains surrounding it.  The course is up and down here and there but no crazy stuff like so many mountain courses where you have to stand on one leg to hit a shot into the woods and watch it bounce back on the fairway....no blind shots.  Two of the par 3 holes are down hill including the signature 12th a mid iron to the green well below.  Makes nice big ball mark when you hit the green.  The greens are combo of bent and poa.  Our super keeps them shaved down to a daily speed of 9-10 tournament speed of 10-11 any faster and the ball will roll off the green on some of the holes, 5, 7, 11, 13 and 17 to be exact.  Keep the ball below the hole and no problems, get it long and you have just created a problem.  

2023 Mountain Man Champions:  Sr Matt Avril Vero Beach/Highlands,  SSR:  David Anthony Jacksonville Fl, Leg:  Don Russell Tequesta Fl, Super Leg Bruce Scamehorn Lake Wales Fl  Gr Masters Tommy Toombs Alabama
