Abundant sunshine, stiff competition, and a comradery that leaves other clubs envious set the stage for the 2013 Forest Park Club Championship. With gross, net, men’s, women’s, and senior divisions contested over three days, there was plenty of action to be seen on the course, and plenty of tales of glory and woe to be heard on our deck!!
A complete listing of results is below, but first some special thanks to Bruce “B” Cardin and his staff for supplying nourishment and hydration and to June Blake and her staff for providing a great set up and conditions for all three days. Last but not least, to Leo Romanos who has passionately coordinated and competed in this event for so many years. A great deal of volunteered time and hard work that the field (one of our largest) truly appreciates.

A special thanks to our superintendent June Blake, her staff, and Mother Nature. June’s strategy, diligent hard work, and ample rains have restored our course from the drought conditions of last year. Our fairways are in great shape, the rough is ROUGH, and the greens are rolling better than ever! While many courses were challenged by our late spring monsoon, Forest Park is open tee to green and looking quite sporty at that!
But don’t just take our word for it, stop up and play a round. You’ll be glad you did
New this year on Tuesday evenings, Forest Park is pleased to welcome the Hunter Machine golf league! For the first time in the leagues history, two dozen cagey pin seekers will take to the fairways and greens of Forest Park for competition, laughs, and fun! For those looking to possibly re-connect with some past co-workers and join in on the fun, please call 743-3311 for details.
