Congrats to the Winners of the St. Patrick’s Invitational!

The first-ever St. Patrick’s Invitational Tournament took place on Saturday with a WONDERFUL field of 72 players. Even though the weather was quite cold, the scoring was excellent! Winning First the 1st Flight with a great net score of 116 was the team of Wayne Augsburger, Glen Fiance, Alan Craig, and Ted Toffey.

Winning the 2nd Flight was the team of Jeff Mondloch, Steve Vahey, Dennis Perry, and Lonnie Parmalee with an excellent net score of 114.

Winning the Closest-to-the-Pin on # 3 with a shot at 11′ 2 1/2″ was Ryan Jackson; winning on #7 was John Teahan at 6′ 9″; winning #14 with an OUTSTANDING shot at 9″ was Steve Vahey, and winning #17 was 2018 Player of the Year Tim King with a shot at 6′.

Even in the cold weather, there were 4 players who shot 73 in the Low Gross Competition, so we had to go to a card-off. Winning First Place Low Gross was John Wilkins, 2nd Place Michael Costello, and 3rd Place Chuck O-B.

The Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner following the tournament was excellent, and everyone had a great time at the Lake Lodge.
