Tournament Description

We had a great time. Below are the team scores, by division, with the first place winners in bold. Note that we played a modified Ponds Course with a shortened B, no C or D, no 18, but with temporary Holes W, X, Y, and Z. Competitive played long tees (women from short), all others played short. Best-shot doubles. Registration fees, with a little kick-in from the Throw Shop, contributed a cool $1,000 to SOS Community.

Ben Calhoun won the distance competition by throwing 444 feet. The winner of the two nights at the Eagle Crest Marriott hotel, which was a CTP contest, was Chris Kaufman, (aka "Murray). No one got an Ace, which was what was needed to win the 42" Toshiba Plasma television.
