Belles Springs Gary Dolan Leads the way at Tyoga CC

Posted on

Wellsboro, PA – A few bursts of rain couldn’t stop 55 golfers on the NCPGA Men’s Tour, as the beautiful Tyoga Country Club hosted the league’s sixth event of the year on Wednesday.

In the 50-59 division, Gary Dolan of Belles Springs G.C. shot a 72 to best the field of 11 golfers and to win overall medalist honors for the week. This was Dolan’s first win of the season. White Deer’s Bruce Hoover, Shade Mountain’s Tim Jordan, and the home course’s Tom Mitchell shared the distant silver with rounds of 80.


A total of 22 golfers tested their games in the 60-69 age group. The Bucknell duo of Jeff Ranck and Tim Harpster shared the top score, both firing rounds of 78. This was Ranck’s first win of the season, and Harpster’s second consecutive first place finish. Rick Everett of Clinton C.C. was just one stroke behind, while James Cotner of Williamsport C.C. and Jim Sargent of Clinton C.C. also trailed very closely, carding rounds of 80 and 81, respectively. The shot of the day came from this division, as Larry Dietrich holed out for an eagle 2 on the par-4 sixth hole.

In the 70-79 age group, Bob Mogel of Tyoga C.C. made the home course proud, firing a 75 to cruise by the field of 20 to a five stroke victory. This was Mogel’s first victory of the season. Bucknell’s Gary Fry came in second with an 80, while Mike Smith of Tyoga C.C. rounded out the podium with an 81.


The 80 and up division hosted the second consecutive duel between White Deer’s Pete Reasner and Bucknell’s Boyd Mertz. After Mertz won last week, Reasner fired a 97 to win the division and take home his fourth top prize of the season.


This marks the sixth of 9 events of the NCPGA’s annual Men’s series. The NCPGA makes its next stop on August 16 at Belles Springs Golf Club with a 1:00 shotgun start. Interested golfers may register at
