Mackeyville, PA – Wednesday’s sunny skies welcomed 52 golfers to Belles Springs Golf Club, as the NCPGA held its seventh men’s event of 2017.


In the 50-59 age group, Kevin Treese of Mountain View C.C. bested the field of 8 with a 1-over round of 73, claiming a share of overall medalist honors along with his first divisional victory of the season. Last week’s winner, Belles Springs’ own Gary Dolan, took second place with a 75, while the Lost Creek G.C. duo of Mark Searer and Frank Richelderfer came in 3rd and 4th with rounds of 76 and 80, respectively.


In the 60-69 division, 3 golfers shared the top place out of the field of 19, firing rounds of 76. This was the third consecutive victory for Tim Harpster of Bucknell G.C. Meanwhile, it was the second victory of the season for Terry Cooper of Toftrees G.C., and the first trip to the top for William Snyder of Bucknell. Jack Driscoll of Clinton C.C. trailed closely behind with an 83, and was followed by a pair of Bucknell golfers Joseph Cipriani, who fired an 84, and Jim Holtzapple, who shot an 85.


Twenty-three golfers tested their skills in the 70-79 age group, bringing back plenty of excellent scores. Robert McNutt of Eagles Mere C.C. fired a stellar 73 to share for overall medalist honors and claim his second victory of the year. Dale Bievenour of Honey Run G.C. was just one shot back with a 74, while Bucknell’s Gary Fry took the bronze with a 76.
