Play Results

Due to rainy weather and “squishy” golf course conditions, there was no play since the last event on December 8th.

The 2021 top three “low gross” players who participated in at least 20 rounds were:

Rich Knowles – 42.1

Ray de Wit – 43.1

Mike Frey – 45.5

The forecast is for dry weather for the next week or so and the reports are that the course is drying out so, we are hopeful that our group will be back in action on January 12th.
