A Flight: Nick Valencia and Bob Tallaksen, 61, Clive Taylor and Jeff Roach, 62, Wayne Curtis and Bill Hallahan, 63.
B Flight: Ed Doidge and Chuck Hudson, 53, Joe Washle and Joe Henderson, 54, Jim Magill and Leroy Madera, 61.
Twenty of the 28 players also entered the Skins contest. The winners are Jim Musser on holes 5 and 18, Joe Washle on hole 12, Oscar Rowland on hole 13 and Bob Stinson on hole 14.
The Closest to the Pin awards went to Sam Theodora on hole 8. On hole 15, Bill Hallahan was the closest but he was not present to receive his award, so it will carry over to next week.
Next week game will be Partners Best Ball; teams must count both balls on all of the par 3s. Players may pick their own partner and foursome. The course record for this game is 67 set on May 31, 2016, by the twosome of Don Raworth and Gary McKee.
