Par for the Course

Greetings from the Pro Shop

Golf season is winding down, and by the time you receive this newsletter, we will have completed all but one tournament in the 2018 schedule. Over the past month, we have three completed events to report on.

On Saturday, August 4, we held a 4-man Best Ball Tournament. The tournament format was the two best net scores of the foursome. The winning team with a score of 119, 21 under par, was the team of Brad Doidge, Gale Scarbrough, Jim Loughrie, and Andy Anderson. Three of the remaining five teams tied for second with a score of 120, 20 under par. Jim Loughrie and Joshah Rager won the skills events.

The second event was something new this year, an 18-hole Par Three Tournament. The golf committee selected different tee locations for the 18 holes that ranged in distance from 95 yards to 150 yards. Although the turnout for the event was low, the 15 golfers who did play enjoyed the new format with several ideas for next year. The winning team with an eight-under-par score of 46 was Chadd Duvall, Trevor Bebout, and Don Farmer. Second place went to Brad Doidge, Tom Sinn, and Mark Johnston with a score of 47. The skills events were won by Team 5 and Team 1.

The last event to report on is the Presidents Cup Match Play Tournament. The Presidents Cup is an individual tournament with each golfer getting their full allotment of handicap, or better known as strokes, for each hole. This format ensures that the competition between all levels of skilled golfers is equal. The winner of the 15 golfer field was Don Farmer who defeated Jack Brand in the championship match.

I want to congratulate all of our winners and thank everyone that signed up and supported your golf club. The final events to be completed are the Club Championship on August 25 & 26, the Labor Day Scramble on September 3, and the Membership Appreciation event on September 8 for those members who have qualified by participating in at least six of ten events played in 2018.

All remaining apparel in the Pro Shop will be on sale in September. Please stop by and have a look at our selection.
