As the first Gainey Cup event looms less than two weeks away, Gainey Ranch golf is back in full swing. Friday’s Kildare Group had a full complement of golfers playing the Lakes/Dunes combo. Gary Anzalone took first place in the gross division and net divisions (75/67). Howard Jones was on his heels in second place in both gross and net with a 78/68. Harold Hoeg tied for second place in the gross field while Sandy Wiener took third in the net competition with a 70. There was one eagle in the field when Dave Kopp dropped a short putt for a three on the par five sixth hole on the Dunes course.
- Gary Anzalone – 75
- Howard Jones and Harold Hoeg – 78
- Gary Anzalone – 67
- Howard Jones – 68
- Sandy Wiener – 70
The course played a little tougher than normal with scores averaging more than 87. The Lakes #7 absolutely brutalized the field averaging a just under double-bogey. It gave up no birdies and 75% of the field scored bogey or worse on the hole. Half the field shot double-bogey or worse. The pin was in the middle of the green. The wind was barely noticeable. The course was in great shape. It begs for an explanation. Halloween is nearly upon us; you don’t supposed it’s haunted?
