Mt Dora Country Club (Dec. 19, 2016)

It was a clear crisp day as the Florida Hickory Golfers took to the links at Mount Dora Golf Club. The municipal layout was built by returning GIs in 1945. A lot of elevation changes and tiny greens make for a challenging course.

In the scratch portion of the competition, Mike Stevens (below left) bested Bryan Bruce by taking the third handicap hole after an 18 hole score card match ended in a tie. On the net side, Rich Grula (below right) blew away the competition with a 62 to take the title.

The day was part of the Florida Hickory Golfers year end celebration in Mount Dora with a weekend stay at the historic Lakeside Inn which dates back to 1883. A great time was had by all and hopefully we can do it again next year.

Merry Christmas to all and look forward to more hickory fun in 2016.
