On Wednesday, May 23, sixty-four golfers teed it up in a two-man scramble format. They played in teams of two, requiring 6 drives or tee shots from each of the players. They were divided into 3 flights on Dollar Ranch and the Creekside flight playing just 9 nine holes. The flights were determined by total handicap of the two players and adjusted for the scramble format. The handicap system makes for close competition within the flights as demonstrated by the scores.

Though the weather was overcast, the winds swirling and the greens proving tricky some good scores still were posted. The competition within the flights was very close. Stan Giddeon and his staff provided some great fried chicken for lunch along with delicious sides and ice cream for desert. The RMGC, as always wishes, to thank Mark Heptig for doing the scoring and pairings. He also did an excellent job in announcing the winners.
