The Winning Pairing

Last week's 22nd Annual Islandwood C.C. Swinging Singles Tournament was once again a huge hit.

The winning twosome bounced around the course with a very impressive 88 and finished out in front.

The 2nd place finishers and runner-up pairing in the alternate shot format rallied bravely. They suffered from a lack of support and eventually got nipped.  They could only manage a 91 after falling flat with a triple bogey on the final hole.

The highlight before dinner was the traditional jump into the pond next to the eighteenth green to claim the winning prize, which -as always - was a motorboat package sponsored by Crestliner.

Chef Roland then provided a bountiful seafood buffet, headlighted by his signature oyster bar. It featured six raw variations and two cooked dishes which disappeared faster than the rapidly setting sun on this glorious day.

I hope to see a full field of equal quality next year, and we wish this year's award winners all the best. 

And as always, we hope that this event served to bring these two even closer together.
