Ernie Smiley, director of golf operations at Dogwood Glen Golf Course in Warren, had himself a pretty good winter as he claimed some major hardware for his own prowess on the links.

Smiley won the Indiana State Golf Superintendents Golf Championship in October at the Sagamore Golf Club in Noblesville, and he and his golf partner, Scott Winling from Sycamore Hills Golf Course in Fort Wayne, won the Four-Ball National Championship held in Carlsbad, CA, in February.

He also was runner-up in his division of the GCSAA (Golf Course Superintendents Association of America) Golf Classic held at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA, also in February.
