ENTERPRISE — More than two dozen golfers competed for prizes at the recent Triple Six Golf Tournament at Alpine Meadows Golf Course, Enterprise.

The seventh-annual tournament took place June 27 under blue skies, though some wind added a little challenge. There were 14 two-person teams, according to tournament director Bill Ables.

“They competed in two flights that depending on each player’s established golf handicap,” he said. “So there were seven teams in each flight.”

This 18-hole golf tournament consisted of the teams playing the first six holes in the Best Ball format, holes seven thru 12 were played using the Scramble format, and the final six holes consisted of the Chapman format.

“It’s a fun way to play golf, although sometimes it can get a little confusing,” Ables said.

Players also vied for closest to the pin on holes one and four. Lance Homan and Dale Johnson, respectively, won the pin contest on these holes.

The winners in the First Flight Gross (total score) Division were: first place — Lance Homan and John Decker (72), second place — Mike Rahn and Mona Rahn (79).

The winners in the Second Flight Gross (total score) Division were: first place — Chad Stangel and Chad Conrad (73), second place — Tristin Beck and Pat Lynn (78).

The winners in the Second Flight Net (handicapped score) Division were: first place — Cole Warnock and Cole Devanderschueren (63.6), second place — Brian Rahn and Amanda Rahn (64.4).

Ables said everyone adhered to social distancing and COVID-19 rules.

Most of the tournaments planned for this year, including the Shriners, have been canceled, Ables said. But there is one coming up: the Elks Tournament on July 17, which is for individual players rather than teams. He also said the fate of the season’s final Labor Day Rat Race tournament is uncertain.
