GLENMORE: Seniors tee it up in Berea

RICHMOND — Wow!

There was so much action on the local links last weekend that I couldn’t fit all the results into one column!

Here’s a recap of the rest of the action from a fun-filled weekend!

The Legends Senior Tournament at Berea

On Saturday, 21 senior golfers teed it up at the Berea Country Club in this unique event.

Winners in the 40-69 years of age group were John Newton with a net 63 and Greg Prater with a net 66.

In the Super Seniors 70 and over division,  Pnut Johnson shot a round of his life and waltzed to victory with a net 58.

Wow!

Raymond Ross was second with a 61.

In the special events, closest to the pin winners were Ralph Howe on No. 5 and John Newton on No. 2.

Mr. Peter Hackbert came up with the idea of having a tournament to honor seniors and the entry fee was different for every age group, from $30 for the Cubs to $5 if you were over 90.

It’s too bad this tourney bucked so many other tournaments because it is a good format.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to my lovely wife, Carolyn, for the typed results.

Jan Barnes champ at MCC

This past Saturday, the Ladies Championship was held at the Madison Country Club.

After a tough battle with Missy Smith, Jan and Missy finished the 18th tied with identical scores of 83. Jan won on a playoff on No. 1 with a par.

Amanda Stepp came in third.

In the First Flight, Coy Perkins was the winner with a score of 97 and Julie Hovey was second with a 98.

The Second Flight winner was Nicole Robertson with a 90 and Wendy Winters was second with a 91.

Congratulations Jan and “you da woman!”

Stephanie Giacchini             at Arlington

On Saturday, Aug. 10, Stephanie Giacchini won the Ladies Championship at the Arlington Country Club.

She outlasted Jan Barnes and last year’s winner, Verda Wylie. Jan took second and squeaked out a one-stroke victory over Verda, who took third place.

Great golf, Steph!
