Champion of Champions 1st Round Scores
Hi VGA golfers!
I am a member of the East Valley Marine Corps League and we are having a tournament on Friday, April 15th, at Oakwood Golf and Country Club in Sun Lakes (off Riggs Road and I-10). We would like to invite you to come and play for a good time and a great cause. All net proceeds from our events go to help veteran Marines in the Phoenix area. We have NO admin or executive charges as all our members are charged with vetting and evaluating and managing our donations. We help veterans who have an immediate need, like making their home handicap accessible, buying a guide dog, a wheelchair or even a first and last month’s rent! This event is one of two we have each year (the other is the Marine Corps Birthday ball in November). There will be some great prizes and opportunities to win cars for a hole in one, golf clubs, cash and etc. It promises to be a lot of fun at a great course for a great cause. Consider signing up, or getting a foursome together to do so. The flier to sign up is attached.(Click here) Cost is $75 which includes a great goody bag, golf, balls and lunch. Bring some extra cash to buy other goodies like mulligans and raffle tickets (we can accept credit cards!) Note that this tournament is on FRIDAY, and a great warm-up for our championship at Viewpoint the next day.
Thanks to all of you for your consideration! Hope to see you there.
Doug Patterson, VGA and East Valley Marine Corps League #1296 member.

The pairing of Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley brings together two individuals with a common passion for the game of golf. The Schmidt-Curley partnership dates back to 1984.
The formation of Schmidt-Curley combines two friends and seasoned professionals with a strong desire to continue creating courses that will stand the test of time. Schmidt-Curley projects span from California to Arizona, Las Vegas to China, Louisiana to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Their Philosophy is to design a course that is demanding, but at the same time beautiful and enjoyable. A course that stirs the senses and elevates the players’ appreciation of the land and his own game.
Over the last 15 years, the duo has worked on more than 100 courses in 24 countries. Other projects include the other nine courses at Mission Hills Hainan;Thailand’s Siam Country Club and Amata Spring Golf Club; 10 of the 12 courses at Mission Hills Shenzhen; Southern Dunes Golf Club (Arizona,USA); the renovation of French Lick Resort’s Donald Ross Course (Indiana,USA) and many more.
As you will see, Canoa Ranch will mimic Lee and Brian’s effort to provide the finest product possible. From the panoramic views of Elephant Head to the beauty of Green Valley, Canoa Ranch is enjoyable, beautiful and memorable.
Info about the event itself:
The John Pierce Invitational Tournament is a stroke play tournament usually held in late May or early June at venues typically in or around the Green Valley Arizona area. The tournament is a three day event covering Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a practice round on Thursday for those invited to participate. The VGA recognizes this event as an official tournament and all individual scores are posted daily as tournament scores in accordance with USGA rules. However, the VGA Board of Directors has designated this event only for the purpose of counting these rounds towards the 10 VGA rounds required for eligibility to win the Club Championship. This also means there are no Big Dog points awarded or Hole in One prizes awarded. The VGA treasury does not contribute funds for this tournament. Entry fees are collected from participants and prizes paid to winners in amounts solely determined by the event coordinator.
