TD Comments- Junior War of the Roses
The annual Junior War of the Roses was held Monday, August 6 at Meadia Heights Golf Club. Despite the challenging weather we have had, the course was in superb shape and proved to be a great venue for our “Ryder Cup” style event. Birdies were flying, but the tight layout and difficult greens also punished shots that weren’t of high quality. I want to thank Meadia Heights for their hospitality during our day there.
The morning started with the Fourball (Better Ball). The play, like the weather, was hot. Both sides, Lancaster and York, had several teams post 9-hole better ball scores under par. By the time things settled, Lancaster had jumped out by posting a 5-2 lead.
Then play switched to Foursomes (Alternate Shot). Again, play was tight throughout, but Lancaster ended up with a 5 ½ to 1 ½ advantage. By the lunch break, Lancaster was holding a sizeable lead.
The afternoon individual matches were equally as exciting as the morning. The players from both sides were certainly fighting fatigue with the 100-degree heat index and steep hills to walk, but that didn’t limit the competition. Lancaster did finally take a commanding lead in the individual matches, but York worked hard and made them earn it. In the end, Lancaster retained the Cup with a 22 ½ to 5 ½ victory.
Thank You: I want to thank everyone for helping me through my first season as Tournament Director. I am very pleased and proud of the Lancaster County Junior Tour. This season we were able to add online scoring and a professional photo backdrop. I have heard numerous positive comments about both. If there is anything else you think we should look at in order to continue growing and improving the tour, please let me know. The board meets regularly in the off season and we will certainly consider your suggestions. Feel free to email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
