____________Fact or Fiction?___________

Was the County Tournament always held at same location?

Fiction:  The Bay County Golf Course opened its doors in 1966.  The first County Tournament at this location was 1968 with Jerry Snable as champion  Before that the event was held at the old Euclid course. 

Just a little bit of history!

(Right)  Larry Boon tees off on the first hole of Championship Flight.  Larry finished in 16th place with scores of 76 and 78.

 


Did you know that Scott Miller's 66 in the opening round of the 2007 County Tournament was the lowest round ever posted in the event.

 


 

 

(Left)  Scott who is known for his 300 yard plus drives played a solid tournament this year posted rounds of 74 - 74 to finish in a tie for 4th place.

 

(Right)  Jason Holyszko a past champion tests the flexibility of his shaft on his opening drive in this year's tournament.  Jason finished in 3rd place with a two over 146.

 (Right)  Dave Dietlein better known as "CARP"  lets the right elbow fly as he sets his club for his patented hook starting down the right side of the fairway.

(Left)  Nick Spencer who is known for his weak fades off the tee....let me correct myself for his unruly power off the tee lets one go on his opening tee shot.  (Nick recently drove the #1 green some 380 yards away.  With a little help from the cart path, but come on 380 yards.  It's too bad he missed his eagle putt.  Next time Nick!)
