Again today, June 26, we paid tribute to a great golfer and friend Nikki Patterson in the form of her very own Invitational tournament held at The Golf Club and Stonebridge. A full field of 128 ladies participated in this year's tournament, in spite of some really, really hot weather.
The course was in wonderful condition and the Stonebridge hospitality and food was outstanding. There are always little "problems" that sprout up behind the scenes, but no one would ever know it if there were.
There was a raffle with really nice prices and all the monies went to the National Cancer Society, since Nikki was a victim of this horrible disease.
This year the committee decided to flight the teams after play, using no handicaps, so if you heard that you had a lower score than one of the winning teams, it just wasn't your day and you fell into a different flight. You can see the leaderboard results in the slideshow presentation below.
