2016 Fair Oaks

Oakland, TN - Fairoaks Golf Course provided a tough test for the first double points event. With winds gusting over 20mph and the greens running over 10 on the stimpmeter, conditions were beautiful but hard. We would like to say thanks to Bruno Strzalka and the entire staff at Fair Oaks for a fine job! 

Championship Flight - Ed McDugle won for the first time this season after several runner ups. Ed birdied two of last three holes to finish with a 1-under 71.

A' Flight - Tim Ferrell shot a brilliant 75 to be the first person to beat 3-time winner Keith Nukolls, who finished 2nd with a 78. Tour rookie Jordan Roper came home in 3rd.

B' Flight -  We had a close finish with our guest from Arkansas tour, Tim Robbins, shooting 79 to edge out Chris Prince by one (80) and guest Mike Penn by two (81).

C' Flight -  Eighteen holes was not enough, as it took sudden death to determine a winner as 3 players tied for the title with 88's. Bill Barker parred the first extra hole to grab the first place trophy and defeat Andy Darrow (2nd) and Bart Watkins (3rd).

D' Flight -  We also needed extra golf in the D' flight as Ira Watkins and Darrell Harris both shot 91. Just like the 'C' flight playoff, it ended after only one hole when Harris parred the first playoff hole. So Watkins takes 2nd and 3rd place went to Trent Warren with a 94.


Our next tournament is on June 4th at the beautiful Dogwoods Golf Course in Grenada, MS.  Please pay for side games and entry on website.
