Golf goes on at Graeagle Meadows
The Graeagle Meadows WGC members competed over three rounds for the Captain’s Cup title. This is a net, match play tournament in which each hole is worth one point: the winner receives one point, the loser receives zero, and a tie results in each player receiving one-half point. Points are accumulated over the three tournament rounds. Congratulations to this year’s Captain’s Cup winners: First Place, Cheryl Brennan with 31points; Second Place, Cathy Churchill (30 1/2 points); and, Third Place, Lois Childress (also 30 1/2 points, decided by a scorecard playoff).
Golf for the men of Graeagle on Aug. 19 was loose; there were no organized Wednesday Play Day activities due to the first day play of the Guys & Gals Tournament.
August 21st the play was an individual low net game. On Friday the top player, with a score of 68, was Andy Knudsen. Second place went to Jett Monaghan with the score of 69. Dave Macdonald and Ron Clark were tied for third, coming in with the score of 70.
There were 4 skins taken on Friday, with Dave Macdonald having a net 2 on #2; Jack Gilbert taking hole 5 with a 3; Jim Reynolds grabbing hole 7 with a 3 and Norm Nichols getting a 1 on hole 8.
The Guys & Gals tournament concluded Sunday, Aug. 23, and had two flights. Each flight had both a gross champion, not using a handicap, as well as a net champion where the handicaps were included to adjust the total score. In the first flight, the gross champions were Ken and Dottie Hattich while the net champions were Ron Clark & Cathy Churchill. In the second flight the gross champions were Gary Kinkley and Cheryl Brennan and they also took top honors as net champions.
