new member cleans up at brookside

Gary SmithNew MBGFR member Gary Smith of Visalia claimed both low net and low gross honors at our soggy March 1 tournament at Stockton's Brookside Country Club.

Although most of California saw rain on Friday, the MBGFR players missed the rain but did endure some strong winds during Saturday play.

Smith fired an 83 (65) for first low net and took a low gross card off from Larry Rambaud (83-72). Rambaud's net 72 was good for second low net and guest Roy Belanger (83-73) was third and Jim Quinn (98-73) was fourth.

The ladies claimed both closest to the flagstick honors with Janice McKinney taking the money on #3 and Barbara Mehan winning #12.

Following golf, tournament hosts Gary Long and Anne Johnson hosted the group at their home on the course. The pair provided wine, beer and a Mexican feast.

A number of players cancelled because of the weather but the tournament still drew 25 members and guests. Thanks to Gary and Anne for hosting this event and for their hospitality following play!
