MEEKER I “Everybody watched it snow for an hour, then at 11, we went out and had four hours of sunshine,” Meeker Golf Course manager Scott Bowman said of the weather delay of the three-person scramble held Saturday. “It was awesome.”
Nine teams, including two from Rangely, endured the weather to play in two flights, and it was a Rangely team that took top honors in the championship flight.
Rangely’s Clark Edwards, his mother, Ellen Boudreaux, and Trevor Anderson shot a 58 to beat Chad Luce, Bill deVergie and Pat Hughes by four strokes, giving them first net honors. Last year’s champions, Lex Collins, Bryce Ducey and Pat Walsh, finished five shots behind this year’s champions.
Danielle Feora, Larin Crase and Kyle Frary had the best gross score (65) in the second flight, two shots ahead of Gary Stewart, Joe Barnhill and Greg Ackerman, who finished with the best net score (52).
“We had nine teams made up of hardy individuals,” Bowman said. “We’re thankful for the two Rangely teams who came over to play.”
The next tournament at the Meeker Golf Course will be the Berry Brothers Scramble, held May 16. The annual two-man, 27-hole scramble will be held the following day.
