Four-Club Tournament, August 7
On a warm and smoky August day, a group of intrepid golfers attacked our course with limited tools...specifically, four clubs instead of the usual 14. They were surprised at how well they did, and some winners emerged after the fray. In the A Flight, Ron and MaryAnn Baker took first place with an 11-under par net 59, while the Jims (Ussery and Dixon) finished in second place at 8-under par net 62. In the B Flight, Richard Grant and Jim Waters captured first place with a sizzling 13-under par net 57, with Steve Jenkins and Bob Elliott placing second with a 9-under par net 61. Closest-to-the-pin winners were Herb Knieriem on #2 and Rob DiNunzio on #15. See, you really don't need all those clubs, do you? Congratulations to all the winners!
Ryder Cup Rumble, July 17
This annual match play extravaganza was all new this year and more colorful than ever. There were red tees and black tees, there were blue shirts and grey shirts, there were tons and tons of pink flags! This year, 18-hole matches were played with each hole being a designated format (scramble, shamble, or better ball). Unique tee boxes were defined, making for several drivable Par 4s and 5s. Lots of food and fun afterwards, too, with an excellent spread which was put on by the Apple Mountain Grille. When it was all said and done, the Blue Team (captained by Mark Lee) defeated the Grey Team (captained by Nate Humes) by a score of 14-10. It was a close match, which went down to the final foursome.
