Bragging rights were on the line during the 2017 Mixed Member-Member. The 2-day event, better known as the “Divorce Open”, kicked off play on Saturday, August 26th with a 2-person Better Ball event, followed by a 2-person Scramble format on Sunday. Teams competed for both Gross and Net Championships. Most of the teams were comprised of spouses, but there were 8 teams competing with someone other than their better half.
While many teams were in the hunt for the Net championship, a smaller race was vying in the Gross Division. On Saturday, Rick/Joyce Schlapkohl shot even par 72; Greg/Donna Stamey ended the day with 3-under 69, and the leaders, Dan/Deborah Beasley were at 4-under 68. These three teams again battled it out on Sunday for recognition as the LRCC’s best golfing couple. The Schlapkohls played impressively and came in third with a score of 141. The Stameys and Beasleys were close to the end, each shooting an incredible 6-under par 66 on Sunday. After two days of intense play, the team of Greg/Donna Stamey won the Runner-up prize and Dan/Deborah Beasley were the victors and grand champions.
