Neshobe Golf Club in Brandon hosted a small but enthusiastic group of Vermont Senior Games golfers on Monday August 12. It turned out to be a gorgeous day for the event, and the players uniformly enjoyed both the course and the relaxing atmosphere in the clubhouse after the round.
Trinket Mason, formerly from Vermont but now splitting her time between Lake George, NY and Sanford, Florida, edged out Hardwick’s Elizabeth McCarthy for the women’s low round of the day by a single shot.
On the men’s side, Thomas Lucas of Shelburne, Vermont led the field by posting an impressive score of 82. He bested a highly-competitive men’s 55-59-year-old bracket in which Renee Bombardier from Essex Junction (silver medal) and Bruce Gepfert from Vergennes (bronze) both easily broke 90 as well.
Williston, Vermont’s Stephen “Jay” Holmes also recorded a round in the 80’s to win the men’s 65-69-year-old age group.
A complete list of medal-winners can be found below.
Thanks go out to Neshobe for hosting this event for the second time, it was well worth the drive. Bruce Gepfert and Kevin Plett deserve credit for terrific organization in preparation for the event, allowing the day to run very smoothly. They challenged the participants to all return next year and bring a friend, to boost numbers and competition for the even-numbered-year national qualifying tourney.
