2018 Club Championship
For many of the members, the weather was the most challenging part of the 2018 SBIC Club Championship. Held on two consecutive weekends, the participants endured temperatures in the high 80’s and 90’s, along with high humidity on three of the days and torrential rain on a fourth.
The top eight finishers in each of the three flights qualified during the first day – a medal-play format. Bracketed, the members then proceeded in a match-play format. During the next three days, both the A Flight and B Flight played at 100% handicap, while the Championship Flight played with no handicaps.
In the Championship Flight, Pat Kline overtook last year’s Club Champion, Dan Walsh. after a grueling 36-hole round. This is Pat’s third club champion Sean Collins finished in third place followed by Bryon Collins in fourth.
During their 18-hole final, Jim Saulnier won the A Flight over 2nd place winner Lou Whittemore. Third and fourth place was Joe Richard and Art Wilschek respectfully. Chuck Walsh won the B Flight over runner-up Steve Quinlan in their final day 18-hole round. Dave Aucoin placed third and Dennis Murphy fourth.
On July 8th and 15th, SBIC members fifty and over participated in the 2018 SBIC Senior Tournament. Jim Saulnier posted a score of 78 to pull ahead of his competitors to win the Senior Division. Mike Dell’Arciprete, in the Super Senior Division, had a stella round to win. Joining last year and wasting no time to get his name on the winners board is Super Super Senior Champ Bob Baker.
The Sandy Burr Cup tournament, our first major, was held the weekend of June 9 & 10. It took awhile, but we finally had two great days of weather to complement the wonderfully groomed golf course. Sixty-four players competed in this two-day event.
On Sunday, June 3, 2018, more than 90 golfers enjoyed the sunny, brisk day playing golf. Each year, the money raised during the SBIC Member/Guest Scholarship Tournament helps us award scholarships to deserving students.
