Stonebridge Golf Course

September 9, 2017



Another beautiful day for a golf tournament as Stonebridge Golf Club Hosted The Contractors, Inc. Open. This was our last single day event of the 2017 season and we had 44 players come out to compete for the trophy and try to position themselves for a points championship. We also had a great BBQ lunch afterwards thanks to Mike and Tonia Bertoldo.

Our next event is September 23rd and 24th at Tunica National. With 900 points going to the winners most of the flights championships are still up for grabs. This would also be a really great place to make my goal of 50 players in a tournament. Please note that day 1 at Tunica is a shotgun start at 1:30 pm and day 2 will also be a shotgun beginning at 8 am. So far we do not have food planned but that could change. I will keep you all posted.









Champ flight’s Jeff Dickey got his first win with a five over par round of 76. Congratulations Jeff. Adam Burkett came in second.








Phillip Roberts showed consistency in A flight shooting 41/41 for a round of 82 to take his third win in the 2017 season. Tim Ferrell takes second with an 84 in only his second tournament after returning from an off-course injury.












In the most competitive flight of this season B flights Lafayette Simmons proves he’s the one to beat in the tour finals at Tunica National. Lafayette shot 80 to take his second win in a row making himself not only the only 2-time winner in B flight this year but now the only 3-time winner in B flight. Rick Debardeleben came in second with an 82 and Neil Adams takes third with an 85.











In C flight Bart Watkins put up a 38 on the front 9 to take charge early but on the back 9 it was Andy Gregory who put up a 38 to challenge for the win. In the end it came down to a put on 18 for Bart to win with and 84. Andy shot 85 for second and Danny McDougle takes third with an 87.














Dave O’Neal comes in strong winning with an 84. Great round Dave! D flight points leader Vince Vaghela finishes in the money again shooting a 92 and Dan Benoit finishes third only one stroke off of Vince’s pace with a 93.
