Area golf notes: Crumley wins GSGA event; Hogan 1-over; NGA at Achasta

By staff
White County's Eli Crumley recently won a Georgia State Golf Association 17-18-year-old area tournament at Mossy Creek Golf Course in Cleveland.

Crumley fired a three-under-par 69, while teammate Richie Mote also posted a 75 to take second place.

Both golfers have collected enough points this summer to compete in the GSGA's state tournament in Valdosta later this month.

HOGAN 1-OVER AT BERKELEY: Chattahoochee Golf Club director of golf Rodger Hogan put together the best two days amongst area competitors this week at the GSGA's Championship at Berkeley Hills Country Club in Duluth.

Hogan finished 1-over, tying for 21st with a two-day total of 145 on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Achasta Golf Club's Jordon Arnold finished in a tie for 32nd at 3-over and Royal Lakes' Jared Cagle fired a five-over through two days.

Chicopee Woods' Greg Lee and Jeff Frasier each fired two-day totals of seven-over.

NGA COMING TO ACHASTA NEXT WEEK: The nation's third-largest golf tour will come to Dahlonega's Achasta Golf Club next week.

Tournament play will begin on Thursday and continue through Sunday, with a pro-am scheduled for Wednesday.

This will be the NGA's second tournament in the area this year -- though the Milton Martin Honda Classic at Chattahoochee Golf Club (March 16-19) was canceled due to inclement weather.
