The Cantiague Park Senior Men’s Golf League had its 9th tournament on Aug. 22. We had 26 golfers. We had 6 golfers who scored under 40, including a brilliant 33 by Bob Ross and Dave Malle. Low overall score was won by Dave Malle with a tiebreaker. John Valsecchi scored a 42, his personal best so far and easily won low overall net.
Please note: There will be no early outs from this point on. Club golfers who do not wait for the 7:30 a.m. start will lose rights to winning any prize money or points. Golfers who must be the first out at 7:30 a.m. will be accommodated. A new rule will also be imposed that you must play your round with club members only or default your score.
