On Saturday August 31st we celebrated the 90th anniversary of the opening of the CG&CC golf course.
The day began with a long drive contest from the 9th tee into a strong and gusting wind. Tim Preston won the Open category with a drive of 313 yards. Jason Symons also topped 300 yards with a drive of 303 yards. The senior division was won by Chuck Bennision with a drive of 256 yards edging Paul Trendel with 255 yards. All of our contestants bested the winning distance from 1929.
Prior to the 2 man better ball golf tournament, three of our senior members were on hand to hit ceremonial tee shots. Long time member, John Murray and past Club Presidents Gene Amedio and Alan Danforth all launched shots straight down the first fairway.
The Overall Gross tournament winner was decided in a 3 way playoff. The ultimate winners were Dale Wotherspoon and Ed Palmatier. The Golf Shop will provide a link which will provide detailed results.
Everyone at the dinner received a copy of a special 90th anniversary book containing the history of the Club and personal stories submitted by some of our members. ALL OTHER MEMBERS SHOULD PICK UP A COPY OF THE BOOK IN THE GOLF SHOP.
The day wrapped up with a delicious buffet dinner for over 70 members, past members and guests. Peter Vizio won the Grand prize in our season long membership raffle.
