A great time was had by all at Water's Edge last Sunday. The weather was great and the course was interesting and challenging. Congrats to the winners (see results link).
One correction on the final results. In the Men's D flight Zigmas Sadauskas won third place instead of Arvydas Cepulionis. Our apologies for this error. Cepi you owe Ziggy a drink!

Our golf club issues golf indexes which have been approved by the United States
Golf Association. A USGA Handicap Index will be converted to a course handicap and
used in the net competition tournaments that we conduct. Having a golf index enables
golfers of varied abilities to compete on an equal basis. We will post all tournament
scores, but in order for your USGA golf index to be valid, it is required that all
of your golf scores, with name of course, tee used, adjusted score with course rating
and slope, be posted. You can do this by contacting Arunas Dagys by phone, or preferably
sending this information to him by e-mail at ArunasD@sbcglobal.net. Directions for
adjusting the golf score, as well as the current golf indexes/handicaps for all
club members, are available by visiting the club's web site.
