Whitevale has been participating with 99 other clubs from Michigan, New York State and Ontario in a Senior Two-Man Gross Match Play competition. The 100 clubs are divided into 25 divisions, with Whitevale playing against Wolf Run, Baxter Creek and Barcovan Golf Clubs this season. In our four matches against these clubs, we scored 80 of a possible 96 points and gained entry directly into Championship Day, held at Highlands Golf Club in London, Ontario. Our 80 points saw us second only to Oshawa GC’s 82 points.
At Championship Day on Monday, August 28, the Whitevale team was: Dave Walker paired with Barry Catterall, John Trimble with Declan Dunn, Mike McGarragle with Bernie Docking, and Steve Hewitt with Ron Bell. The team met very tough competition but enjoyed the day immensely. The team was matched against the Winner, Cutten Fields, the 2nd place team Lookout Point, and the two teams tied for 3rd, London Highland and North Halton. Congratulations to the entire Whitevale team.
Other team members who played in the division matches were: Larry Valianes, Steve Rodriguez Sr., Tim Rutherford, Pat Lamanna and Walt Lemon. Everyone played at least one match.
