Winter will make one last plead this weekend. We have been very fortunate through February with some great spring weather. The golf course has started to turn green, and the winter dormancy is fading away. With that said, please help us in discarding trash and cigarette butts in the proper disposal to keep the course looking great.
Congratulations to Drew Miller for winning the Dylan Cup, our Junior Club Championship last weekend. Drew opened with a 72, despite making bogey on 17 and a double bogey on 18, to open with a 4-shot lead. Despite cold wind and rain on the second day, Drew played a very solid round of 72 to post a two-day total of even par. Drew capped his weekend by making a verbal commitment to Ole Miss!
Wyatt Berry added a second-round 73 to his first-round 76 to finish second in the Dylan Cup.
Drew and his partner, Zach Bailey, teamed together to run away with the Junior Member-Guest. They shot 66-68 for a two-day total of 10-under. Girls’ standouts Rachel Heck and Jayna Choi shot 3-under to finish second. Congratulations again to the tournament winners!
