May 27, 2017. Sixty players in five
flights competed on an overcast afternoon on the challenging course. The 6,670 yard Par 70 North Course,
designed by William S. Flynn and Willie Park, and opened in 1906, features numerous
water hazards, fast sloping greens, and tight tree-lined fairways. The course
is currently under renovation to restore it to the original Flynn design.
In the Championship Flight, Alex Hargaden

Flight went to a 3-man playoff, with Mark Monkhouse (84, 44-40) emerging
victorious with a Par 4 on the 1st hole. The playoff also included George Steinmetz (84,
44-40) and Josh Numbers (84, 40-44). Steinmetz took 2nd place on a
match-of-cards and Numbers took 3rd place. A Flight played a BLUE/WHITE combo tee set at 6,473
In the B Flight, Brian Lynch broke
through with a fine round of 82 (40-42) to claim the title by one-stroke over

better than Robert Stillman (92, 48-44). Dave Neder (93, 48-45) was another stroke back
in 3rd place. C Flight played from a WHITE/GOLD combo tee set
