CURRENT NEWS ITEMS:
A. WEEKLY "SHOWDOWN" TOURNAMENT AVAILABLE TO ALL MALE GOLFERS (NON-MGA EVENT)
The weekly men's "showdown" tournament has proven to be quite popular thus far. Most every Friday (except when MGA tournaments are scheduled) at 11:00 a.m. sharp 40 to 50 golfers tee off in "shotgun" fashion with the idea that all groups will finish about the same time. The format varies from week to week, but really all you need is $10 in hand and a desire to socialize with fellow Tapatio golfers. These tournaments are at the direction of the Tapatio Springs Golf Shop, so if you have an interest, call one of the staff members at 830-537-4197 by noon on Thursday.
B. THIRD TOURNAMENT OF THE YEAR, THE TWO MAN COMBO TOURNAMENT SETS RECORDS!
A record number of MGA golfers, 28 two man teams, teed off on a glorious spring day. The course was in great shape and a good time was had by all. The competition was flighted into two groups and following are the gross and net first place winner in each flight (full details are on the tournament page).
The first winners in this TAX DAY TOURNAMENT, were Jeff Minnick and Randy Mellard, each of whom received money back for their tax returns, equal in value to their entry fee!
First flight, Low Gross Winners - Jack Morrow and Kenne Woods
First Flight, Low Net Winners - David Stemazewski and Billy Toland
Second Flight, Low Gross Winners - Jeff Minnick and Charlie Burns
Second Flight, Low Net Winners - Layton Leissner and Bill Lee

Tournament fees may be billed to member account, or paid in cash on the day of the tournament.
