Annual Tournament Recap
by Eric Strasheim, Superintendent, Murphy Creek Golf Course
 
On Monday, July 10th the RMGCSA membership rolled into Colorado Springs to attend the annual tournament and education event at The Country Club of Colorado presented by C&M Golf and Grounds.  Designed by Pete Dye and maintained in excellent condition by Glenn Samuelson and crew 70 participants were off to try to figure out the undulating and championship condition greens.  The course was the first Pete Dye design in Colorado and also his first west of the Mississippi and offers some great views of mountains, lakes and Colorado Springs.  The results of our Championship are as follows:

Closest to the pin:
#6 - Mike Osley – SaddleRock
#8 – Jeremy Potestio – Potestio Brothers
#11 – Scott Lyons – Potestio Brothers
#17 – Eric Gustafson

Cup Champions:
Class A/B Low Gross – Dave Brown – Flatirons Golf Course
Class A/B Low Net – Jimmy Rodriguez – Towa Golf Club
Affiliate Low Net – Tyler Gillette – Granite Seed and Erosion Control

After golf our educational speaker for the event was Carmen Magro CGCSA, Chief Agronomist for Stevens Water Monitoring Systems.  Mr. Magro talked about using the latest technologies to make informed and practical agronomic decisions.  He used the POGO Pro as an example of how one sensor can be used in many ways with the app, the cloud and GPS to make these informed decisions.  A big thanks to the event staff for the nice lunch and setting up the pavilion and A/V for the education.  The pavilion unfortunately was located outdoors next to a swimming pool and made hearing everything a little challenging for some but Mr. Magro overcame this and  we hope to have him back one day in the future.
