Gray Foxes golfers at the Lake end their seasons

By Duncan Nixon

The Gray Foxes nine-hole and 18-hole golf groups ended its season, as usual on the first week of November.  The 18-hole group plays on Thursday mornings. The nine-hole group plays on Friday mornings. Due to the COVID-19 virus the season was shortened as the golf course closed for several weeks at the beginning of the season.

Both groups held year long competitions known as ringers and match play. Each competition was held once a month. In ringers, each player’s best score for the year on each hole is counted on a gross and net score basis. In the match play competition, a player competes for a round against an opponent of a comparable skill level on match play basis. This means that each hole is worth a point on the gross score and the net score. Thus, each competition ends with an 18-point score, as in 10-8 or 11-7.

For the nine-hole group, coordinator Dan Foley, reports that in the ringers competition on a gross score basis the winner was Steve Wormington with a 34. Second place went to Cole Hanner with 35 and there was a tie for third place, as Ned Long and Ken Oukrop came in at 36. In the low net competition, Steve Wormington was again the winner with an impressive score of 21. Second place went to Burt Marks with 23. Again, there was a tie for third place. Dan Henry and Joe Clark both posted 24. In the match play competition, the top point winners for the season were Burt Marks with 20.5 points, Dan Henry with 17 points and Joe Clark with 16.5.

In the 18-hole competitions, the best ringers score on a gross basis was a tie. John Alluisi and Mike Hanson both recorded 63. Third place went to Tom Hanlon with a 65. On a net basis there was also a tie. John Stenz and Steve Wormington both came in at a very impressive 47. In third place, quite far behind was Ken Oukrop at 53. In the match play competition, John Stenz won by a wide margin with 12.7. Dave French was second at 10.9, while Mick Dinora posted 10.5. Dan Atkinson, coordinator of the 18-hole group also reported that the lowest gross scores for the year were 74 by Mike Hanson and 75 by Jim Beach. The low net score for the year was 64, recorded by Joel Dwyer and Steve Wormington. The Gray Fox players voted not to have its annual end of season banquet and the portion of its annual fees that would have funded the banquet will be applied to their annual fee for the 2021 season.

The winners of the annual competitions listed above will receive yet to be determined awards of store credits at the pro shop from the annual fees fund. Dan Atkinson noted that he is happy to report that to best of his knowledge none of the Gray Fox players tested positive for COVID-19 during the 2020 season. Players wore their masks during the announcements and when in the pro shop and golf is a game in which players can be well distanced while traveling around the course.
