Golf Bucks County

Middletown Country Club

Middletown is a compact 80 acres of challenging golf, with rolling hills and large specimen trees that have watched many golfers travel its fairways over time. It has retained its old time feel with tees and greens in close proximity, allowing golfers to walk the course if they choose.

Bartolacci, Smeraglio claim 4-ball title

Written by Bob Oliver on .

You would need an adding machine to calculate the number of championships Tom Bartolacci and Glenn Smeraglio have captured in their illustrious careers. 

They added another with the 57th Golf Association of Philadelphia Senior Four-Ball Stroke Play at LedgeRock, where they claimed a two-shot win over Laurel Creek's Joe RUsso and Mark Walker, 66 to 68. 

Bartolacci, who plays out of Saucon Valley, and Smeraglio, of LuLu savor the challenge. They scored 30 on the front nine with a birdie and eagle on the card, and played near flawless golf throughout. It was the second championship in the event for the twosome, who also claimed the 2010 tournament.

Jericho National's Mark Metaxas and Jim Gavagan finished at 72.

CHIP SHOTS: A familiar face will be competing in the USGA Mid-Amateur Championship at the beautiful and challenging Stonewall next month. Yardley C.C. Chris Ault earned a berth after a strong 71 at the Philadelphia Cricket Club.
