The duo of Art and Rick Mains were smoking over the weekend at the Goldendale Golf Course after cruising through the two-day Member-Guest Tournament and finishing as club champions with the lowest net score out of the 23 teams in attendance.

The Mains men, playing in the second of two flights, posted a net of 115 over both days and finished as just one of four teams to finish a round of 18 with a score in the 50s, which they did Sunday with a 55.

Tied for the net lead with Sam Wilkins and Jon Garner after both teams shot 60s on Saturday, the Mains delivered the 55 on Sunday to pull away from Wilkins and Garner, who finished strong with another impressive round of 60.

Neck-and-neck with the Mains throughout the weekend, Wilkins and Garner missed the net title by five strokes, but finished on top of the second flight in the gross. They combined for a weekend gross total of 155 after shooting a 76 on Saturday and 79 on Sunday.

After the Mains top net finish with 115 strokes, the team of Larry Hurst and Brent Armstrong was next in the second flight with a 36-hole net total of 123 after a 64 on Saturday and 59 on Sunday. Keith Silen and Mike Shroyer followed the team of Armstrong/Hurst with a net of 130 over the two days.

Rounding out the second flight leaders were Mitch Anderson and Kurt Wilkins, who finished second in the gross after the Wilkins/Garner team with a 165.

First flight

John Wilde and Gordy Rowe put together a net round of 62 on Saturday and Sunday to lead all 12 teams among the first flight, edging some teams by only a couple of strokes.

Wilde and Rowe’s 124 total edged two teams that finished just two strokes back in the net. David Ross and Brad Cameron led off with a 68 on Saturday and came back stronger on Sunday with a 58 for a total of 126. Their 58 on Sunday was the only round under 60 strokes among first flight teams over both days.

Also finishing two strokes back of the lead were Ted Wilkins and Mel Brink, who posted a 62 on Saturday and 64 on Sunday.

Bill Payne and John Church ended the weekend as the first flight’s top gross team, putting up a 69 on Saturday and following with a 67 on Sunday for a 36-hole gross total of 136. They took the top gross spot by a wide margin, with the second highest team coming in 10 strokes back.

Matt Anderson and Joey Shelton teamed up in the first flight and took second with their gross total of 146. They combined for a 72 on Saturday and finished the tournament with a 74 on Sunday.

Each day also featured its own closest to the pin competition. On Saturday, Shelton finished closest to the hole on No. 4, John Church was closest on No. 13, Schroyer was closest on No. 9, and Armstrong won on No. 18.

For Sunday, Bill Payne won on No. 4, Jodi Bellamy was closest on No. 13, Doug Miller won on No. 9, and Brett Beyerlin won the KP for No. 18.

The Goldendale Golf Club also is planning on hosting a few fundraisers at the course throughout September. Contact the club at 773-4705 for more information.
