Second Annual VCA Golf Tournament – September 2020

If you missed the Second Annual VCA Golf Tournament on Wednesday, September 9, you missed a fabulous day!

Maybe not the glorious sunny day that’s perfect for golf – but a cooler, crisp day, perfect for the event.

17 teams hit the links starting at 1 pm and the final group finishing about 5 pm.   Then followed the putting finals and the chipping contest to determine the winners  – cheered on with an enthusiastic audience at the 9th hole.  (And the bar was open..)  Final numbers were calculated and the winners determined.

Even if you were not on the winning team is was still a wonderful day of golf and friendship followed by a tasty BBQ dinner held under the trees next to the 9th green.  Almost 100 people enjoyed the chance to chat and reminisce about the past summer.  A perfect ending – as long as you had a jacket!
