Eagles golf tournament
The Eagles got a chance to test their skills, the weather starting off great, and rain arriving much faster, contributed to calling off their play after 15 holes of golf. The 18-hole tournament became a “9 hole” tournament, using holes 1 through 9, and closest-to-the-pin (CTP) Par 3 competition, using holes 2 and 8.
Pine Course at The Grand Club in Pine Lakes accommodated the Eagles and rendered great support and services.
