12 golfers took part in the regular seniors Thursday golf , starting at 9:30 am on Oct. 1st 2015

It was a nice cool fall day with the sun shining. The temp was about 10 degrees C at tee off and warmed up to about 15 degrees by 1:30 pm when the golf was finished and a mild wind blowing around.

The format for the day was 2 man teams playing alternate shots from tee to finishing out on the green.
The long hitters off the tee, played the odd number holes because they are generally the longest holes to play.
The shorter hitters played the even number holes which include the parr three holes.

Leading the scoring parade were Ray Laquerre and Pete Barna. they scored 19 after the first 3 holes, ( the only 8 scored on the day), they then parred the next 6 holes for a 43 on the front nine.
They had two birdies (only birdies on the day) on the back nine and turned in a 37 for a total of 80.

Eight strokes back for second place were the pair of Leo Lamarche and Todd Bryck , shooting a 88,
Thanks to Leo’s clutch putting. they shot 45 going out and 43 coming in.

Larry Hawkins and Rudy took third place with a 48 on the front and a 45 on the back nine.

Franko and Richard got fourth place on a count back, with a 94. Also coming in with a 94 were the pair of Jean Lambert and Scotty Russell .

the tournament organizers Ed Kennedy and Brian McCallum shot a 51 on the front and a 49 on the back for an even 100.
