Report Reply 3 replies · active 263 weeks ago -2 Vote up Vote down CCN · 263 weeks ago People that buy annual passes pay a base rate to play in the tournament. Those who do not will pay more to cover the cost of daily fees and golf carts which are city dollars. I saw pictures of the scoreboards on the internet and a majority of the golfers came in from out of town to play in this event. I even saw a name on there who drove from Texas to play. Nice to see out of town money come in and help support the golf course. Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down Confused2 · 263 weeks ago Wait, that still does not say that anything is kept by the Golf Course for maintenance, wages, etc. You stated that the out of town participants pay a higher entry fee, local annual pass participants pay less. BUT – if 100% of the entry fees are paid out to participants….then nothing stays with the golf course for upkeep & wear & tear!! Do they pay separate green fees?? or other fees?? Hasn’t the golf course needed tax payer support in recent years? If 10% of entry fees were kept for upkeep(repairs, wages, etc), wouldn’t that help the golf course budget, long term planning, etc? Report Reply -2 Vote up Vote down CCN · 263 weeks ago The non-annual pass holders pay the extra fees to cover daily fees and golf carts which I believe goes towards the course budget to cover maintenance fees and wages. Most public courses are supported by their cities. I have heard that some support their courses up to 500,000 a year which I would be surprised if ours has support our local course that much in the last 5+ years.

This was very popular and a nice addition to the event.”The results are as follows.Championship Flight1st â€“ Myles Miller – Jarin McGovern, 58+57=115 $300 ea.2nd â€“ Brian McGreevy – Max McGreevy, 59+62=121 $225 ea.3rd â€“ Shane Gilbert – Seth Bryan, 64+58=122 $175 ea.A Flight1st â€“ Erik Ritzman – Sean Lunsford, 68+61=129 $300 ea.2nd Tie â€“ Steve Gill – Richard Clift, 65+65=130 $200 ea.2nd Tie â€“ Bill Mott – Brad Stocking, 65+65=130 $200 ea.B Flight1st â€“ Chad Gill – Dietrek Gill, 67+67=134 $300 ea.2nd â€“ Stan Furgason – Larry Womack, 67+68=135 $225 ea.3rd Tie â€“ Scott Kailer – Chuck White, 71+67=138 $58.25 ea.3rd Tie â€“ Gary Richmond – Harry Ricke, 69+69=138 $58.25ea.3rd Tie â€“ Pete Miller – Tony Ferraro, 68+70=138 $58.25 ea.C Flight1st â€“ Bill Butts â€“ Mark Erickson, 67+72=139 $300 ea.2nd â€“ Doug Johnson – Mike Kirklan, 70+70=140 $225 ea.3rd â€“ Jordan Tompkins – Billy Morgan, 71+70=141 $175 ea.D Flight1st â€“ Bob Gates – Kevin Welsh, 70+72=142 $300 ea.2nd â€“ Dustin Craig – Brady Short, 68+75=143 $225 ea.3rd Â â€“ John Venskus – Zai Lo, 72+73=145 $175 ea.Follow us on Twitter.
