Men’s Golf League Results
On July 9, the Riverview Golf Club in Santa Ana hosted 11 men and one woman of the Men’s Golf League. Chris Lankford and Digna Vesely played as guests and are working on getting a handicap. Riverview is a par-70, 5,800-yard course that has significant elevation changes and crosses the Santa Ana River several times. The greens and fairways were in great condition again this week, and the golfers reported it’s a pleasure to play this course. Initially, there was no wind, but a cooling breeze came up toward the latter part of round, making the 85-degree late morning bearable. With the great playing conditions and little wind, the golfers generated six birdies, but only five at- or under-par rounds.
All scores are net. A Flight handicap: 0-20; B Flight handicap: over 20.
A Flight Winners: First place: Sam Choi, a terrific 6 under 64; second: Jim Goltra, a super 5 under 65; third: Larry Hillhouse, a nice 3 under 67; fourth: Fujio Norihiro, 2 under 68. Goltra had two birdies, and Choi, Norihiro and Stivers had one each. Goltra was also closest to the pin on the 150-yard, par-3 second hole, and Dave LaCascia was closest on the 100-yard, par-3 ninth hole. Hillhouse had fewest putts.
B Flight Winners: First place: Gene Vesely, an excellent 4 under 66; second: tie between Bob Munn and Tom Ross, 2 over 72; third: Liz Meripol. Ross had fewest putts, and Munn had a birdie.
