Ask many men what they would prefer to do on Fathers Day and the answer is likely to be “play golf.” Fifteen 3-man teams agreed with that sentiment on Sunday as they gathered to compete in the annual Fathers Day Tournament sponsored by Green Valley.
In addition to getting to play on the course made lush by recent rains, the gentlemen also got to enjoy a lunch prepared by the Green Valley Ladies Association. There were several father/son combos in the field, which helped capture the spirit of the day.
The conditions were perfect for scoring as the normally robust winds were cooperating, the temperatures were mild, the fairways were providing good lies and the greens were soft and receptive. The field responded by posting good numbers, as it took 12-under to win the scramble format. Chip-offs were required to decide flights as scores were evenly bunched with the favorable conditions.
