Brunswick Golf Club to host Maine Amateur Championship

BRUNSWICK As the Maine State Golf Association celebrates it’s centennial this year, one its founding member clubs, Brunswick Golf Club, will be hosting the 98th Maine Amateur Championship on July 11-13.

This will be the second time the club has hosted the event. In 1997, veteran Mark Plummer won the 10th of his 13 Maine Amateur titles with a score of 217, besting Scott Dewitt by five strokes.

“It’s exciting to have it back here. Being one of the original founding clubs was a big draw for the MSGA. We’re holding a few fun events for the golfers using some equipment from the early 1900’s,” AJ Kavanaugh said.

Kavanaugh, a former Mt. Ararat golfer, has been the Director of Golf at the club since 2012. He has been involved with other MSGA championship events hosted by the club in recent years that include the 2012 and 2015 Senior Amateur, 2013 and 2014 Four-Ball Championship, and the 2016 Match Play Invitational.

Par for the course: Marquis among local golfers competing at Maine Amateur at Brunswick

Former Lewiston High School No. 1 golfer Cameron Marquis is eager to play in the 98th Maine State Golf Association Amateur Championship this week at Brunswick Golf Club.

"Yeah, I'm excited," said the 22-year-old lifelong Lewiston resident who will be competing in his second Maine Amateur after being the medalist with a 68 in the June 20 qualifier at Poland Spring. "I've played Brunswick three times in practice rounds, and I think the course fits long ball hitters. "

Marquis was the No. 1 player on the Lewiston High golf squad before graduating in 2013. He alternated between No. 3 and 4 at the University of Southern Maine during his one year there. Now at Central Maine Community College, he is one semester from graduation, after which he is hoping to be accepted into a PGA apprentice program.

Marquis' birdie run cemented his second appearance at the Maine Amateur

...But it wasn’t terrible, either. The round as it stood would likely have qualified the young golfer for the 98th annual Maine Amateur at Brunswick Country Club this week, despite a slower start — he bogeyed the opening hole before birding the par-3 sixth, and then bogeyed again on the ninth at the Donald Ross-designed gem.

He didn’t panic after the bogey at the turn though, knowing as he was where he wanted to be, hovering around par. As it turned out, that bogey on the ninth was his last of the round.

Marquis made a charge on the back nine, draining four birdies and five pars to shoot the low round of the day with a 68, three shots ahead of the second-place finisher Joshua Trivilino (71).

Maine Amateur title up for grabs at Brunswick Golf Club
With no defending champ, the field of 132 golfers is wide open for the three-day tournament that begins Tuesday.

The only thing certain about this year’s Maine Amateur golf tournament is there won’t be a repeat champion.

Matt Hutchins, who last year as a 19-year-old conquered the heat and the tough course at York Golf & Tennis Club to win by six strokes, has moved to Florida and isn’t eligible to play. His departure opens the door for a host of others, many of them in Hutchins’ age group.

“Every year there seems to be one or two pop up,” 13-time champion Mark Plummer said of the young golfers. “That’s great, a tribute to our junior program. We’ve had some pretty good young golfers come out of it, and new ones are coming along every day.”

Brunswick ready to host its second Maine Amateur Championship

...A.J. Kavanaugh said. "With it being the 100th year anniversary of their association, we are very proud that they are coming back after 20 years and we are very proud of some of the changes we’ve made."

While Brunswick is member-owned, the course is open to the public. Kavanaugh is happy the MSGA is returning for the championship since they don’t often hold the Maine Amateur at public courses.

Kavanaugh expects a "blue collar" feel to the tournament, akin to when the United States Golf Association goes to Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York, or Torrey Pines in San Diego, California, for U.S. Opens, as both of those courses are open to the public.

Maine Am preview: Open field tackles challenging Brunswick course looking for the title
Thick rough, fast greens await players seeking victory in 98th Maine Amateur championship.

...There will be a handful of holes with particularly tough layouts as well. The 13th hole (normally the fourth, but all tournament rounds will start on the back nine) is a par-3 at 215 yards with water on the right. The par-3 second hole has been stretched from 180 to 198 yards, thanks to a brand-new tee box being unveiled for this tournament, and the 15th hole is a par-4 at a daunting 460-470 yards from the Maine Am tees.

“Holes 13, 14 and 15 will be almost like the Amen Corner of the tournament,” Kavanaugh said. “(Hole No. 15) will be a game-changing hole throughout the week.”

Still, Brunswick’s layout of about 6,700 yards is not particularly imposing, and while the aforementioned holes will reward the longer hitters, there are enough reachable par-5s and short holes to give players relying more on their accuracy and short games a chance to score as well as the long hitters.

Grindle leads locals Kannegieser, Baker, two others after first round

...Sam Grindle of Island Country Club was all alone at the top after the first round of the three-day tournament, shooting a 4-under 68 to take a one-shot lead over four other players.

"I'll take it," Grindle said. "It's a good start to the tournament."

Grindle said his play was "so far, so good," but was quick to point out that there's still more golf to be played.

Will Kannegieser out of Martindale Country Club had a similar sentiment after carding a 3-under 69.
