“Steve and his team have done a wonderful job bringing back RVR to what I remember RVR to be”, commented Back, “a well manicured, challenging fun golf course. 

RVR has a lot of bunkers, “and the girls excelled,” said Back. “To say I am proud is an understatement.” 

Vivian Brown shot 113 which is 32 strokes better than last year, Wagner Brown shot 123 a couple strokes better than the prior year, Hailey Knowles shot 137, Haley Blaisdell shot 148 and Averee Woodward shot a 175

“The girls did awesome, and for their very first individual stroke play tournament in there lives they did amazing,” commented Back.

“Hailey did great Tuesday, the back nine in Rifle is tough”, concluded Back. “This is her second tournament and it is wonderful the experience she is getting.”
