Ron Gunnoe The winners of the 2012 Palo Verde


Country Club annual two-day Friday Couples Championship event are pictured in front of the Palo Verde Wall of Fame. Incidentally, these same couples were also


the 2009 winners. Friday Couples is played every Friday


(AM and PM) throughout the year and is a very popular event at Palo Verde. Congratulations to this year’s


winners.  MOGA golf results


Ken Kappes and Bob Greene, Publicity You might want to mark your calendar for Thursday, August 2,


and Saturday,


August 4, for the Oakwood/Palo Verde Tournament. Play is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. each day. Forty players from each club will participate in a four-man scramble, from the white tees with the fi rst round at Oakwood and the second round, two days later, at Palo Verde. There will be prizes for teams fi rst through seventh. For all the details on this tournament and other summer events as well, please check at mogagolf.com. The summer hours for the pro shop to 5:00 p.m. Also,


are 6:00 a.m. the


driving range is open under the lights each Monday, Wednesday and Friday until 9:00 p.m. As you are all aware, the next few


months are slow golf months, and there is not really too much to write about. So this will probably be the last MOGA article until September or October. The past several months have been great golfi ng; not too cold and not much rain. Great fairways, friends and tournaments.


Dick Winkelman (left) has resigned as the MOGA tournament director, and Aki Yasuda (right) has stepped forward to replace him. Great job well-done, Dick. Welcome aboard, Aki.


As you can imagine the weekly MOGA


events and the annual tournaments do not take place without the “behind the scenes” effort of volunteers; other fellow golfers like you and me, that work to put it all together including our pros and staff in the pro shop. Having said that, MOGA would like to take this occasion to express a special appreciation to Richard (Dick) Winkelman for all the years of time and effort he has dedicated to MOGA to make our weekly events and tournaments happen successfully. We also want to say


thank you to


Richard’s wife Lynn for “lending him” to MOGA for so many hours each week and for being so kind and patient with all the phone calls at all hours from MOGA golfers. (And you thought your kids call at odd hours!) Surely you know Richard! He’s the only


guy that you see carrying a briefcase on the driving range as often as he’s carrying golf clubs; a briefcase full of MOGA data. You see him in the clubhouse before MOGA play handing out scorecards or adjusting teams in an effort to accommodate players that did not make the list. He is one of those guys that gives so much in time and effort to help the rest of us have a “game.” Richard’s time with MOGA started


back in the spring of 2006 when he was asked to


serve as SUN LAKES SPLASH the MOGA


representative on the Robson Golf — MOGA cont. on page 67
