Where did summer go? Last week the temperature rose to above 90. When I arrived at Canterbury Woods Golf Club this week the temperature was hovering around 50 with a light rain. As the day went on it began to brighten, but the temperature never got above 65 through out the day. That did not discourage the 30 teams (120 players) that played in todays event. The team format was 1 BB Gross or 1 BB Net.

In the pro contest Jason Malcolm of Nashua, who hasn’t played in an event in over a year, came in with a 2 under par 70 to take 1st place. Austin Baker of Souhegan Woods (playing in his first event) and Mitch Jefferson of Rochester each shot 1 under 71’s to tie for 2nd place. Matt Arvanitis of SNHU shot an even par 72 and ended up 4th alone. Dan Gillis of Nabnassett Lake, Chris Houston of Laconia, Matt Delois of About Golf, Todd Rollins of Laconia,  and Jay Pollini of Ridgewood all shot 2 over 74’s to tie for5th place. There was a 3 way tie for 10th place. Taylor Stout of Nashua, Dan Wilkins of Laconia, and Brett Smestad of Rochester all shot 75 to tie for that position.

The team gross division had the team from SNHU led by Matt Arvanitis shot a 9 under 63. His team consisted of Evan Rollins, Sean Dully, and Dave Perry. Also shooting 9 under as a team was Jason Malcolm of Nashua and his team of Mark Cormier, Tom Bouchard, and Jeff Hill.

In the net division the team from The Oaks led by Jon Ellis came in with a 12 under 60 to take 1st place. His team was made up of Dan LaBonte, Dave Nichols, and Dave Proia. Second place was shared by two teams. Austin Baker and his team from Souhegan Woods shot 10 under to tie with Aaron Kingsley and his team from Sunapee. Baker’s team consisted of Mike Hogan, Don Reid, and Austin Rainville, while Kingsley’s teams was made up of Tim Lithgow, Mark McCann, and Mike Quinn.

We want to thank Canterbury Woods Golf Course for hosting todays event. The course played nicely and had lots of compliments on the greens. The NHC is very lucky to have courses that give up the day for our pro am series.
