The tournament was held at the Riverside Gold Course in Mason. Sixteen teams participated in the event, which began at 10 a.m. and lasted throughout the day.
Teams were comprised of four players, and team captains were responsible for keeping score. The tournament began with a continental breakfast provided by McDonald’s and team selections. A Calcutta auction followed, which was hosted by volunteer auctioneer, R.F. Stein. Foodland, Jim Sayre, Tudors, Subway and the Mason Wal-Mart provided additional food for the event.
Hilda Austin, chamber executive director, described this year’s tournament as a success.
“We had a good turnout, great food and wonderful weather,” she said.
The winning teams received both Club House credit as well as a percentage of Calcutta money, with first place taking 40 percent, second place 30 percent and third place 20 percent.
