Congratulations to Kevin King (Men’s Division), Maureen Ball (Women’s Division) and Dan DeGraw (Men’s Senior Division) who outshot a competitive field of golfers to become the 2019 Stone Creek Club Champions.

The two-day event included a field of 38 golfers across 3 divisions of gross and net scoring.

Men’s Division was led by two-time Club Champion Kevin King shooting a two-day total of 155. Chris Wright and Randy Griffin set the pace early on day one firing a 76, while King and Tom Drumm also had their sights set on the Championship shooting a 79 sitting comfortably just 3 off the leaders heading into day two.  Wright and Griffin slowly lost ground after the turn as King’s consistency, experience, and patience helped him make a late charge carding a 1 over par on the back for a 76 on the day to secure the 2019 Stone Creek Club Championship.

Women’s division was led by Maureen Ball who carded a day one 87 three behind reigning champ Lynn Young and two behind Kelly Wells.  Maureen put up an impressive 82 (169) on Day Two, tying friend and fellow competitor Kelly Wells (169).  The match would move to a sudden death hole on #9.  As a crowd of spectators followed the pair, Wells and Ball both made par on #9 which led to another sudden death hole on #18.  Ball’s approach shot settled just below the hole and she’d go sink the 15 foot uphill birdie putt to secure the 2019 Women’s Stone Creek Championship.

Men’s Senior division was a battle between Rick Doherty and Dan DeGraw on Day One.  DeGraw sat in the clubhouse at 78 while Doherty shot a 79 heading into day two.  Bob Holmes would make a late charge firing a 76 (162) to edge out Doherty(163) by a stroke for second place.  DeGraw’s Two Day 78,76 (154) helped him outshoot the field by 8 strokes to earn him the 2019 Senior Stone Creek Club Championship.

A special thanks to our entire staff for preparing the golf course for this event and thank you to our generous sponsors.  The tournament was well managed by Owner and PGA Head Professional Will Weimer, Assistant Golf Professional Amanda Brownell, and Owner Scott Baker.
