Tournament Results

The Business Meeting tournament was completed on September 21st, prior to the Business Meeting.  Winning the Gold flight was the team of Glen Fiance and Will Hoppner with a net score of 61, beating out Greg Sarratt and Leroy Gregory in a card-off.  Larry Culler and Dennis Perry grabbed the win in the Purple/Green flight with an awesome score of 54.

The Italian tournament was played on September 7th, with over 60 players competing for the title.  Winning the Gold flight was the team of Steve Grant, Mark Mullaney, Steve Colteaux and Dean Shotwell with a net 57.  The Purple/Green flight was won by Craig Herendeen, Steve Burke, John Cardott and Joe Vautier with a strong score of net 56.  And following the great Italian Open tradition of awarding the BIG SALAMI to the team that represented the tail end of the field, we would like to recognize the team of Bill Walker, Bill Dougall, Tom Connelley, and Bruce Lay as winners of the Big Salami.
