I want to thank all of our grounds crew for having the course in very good shape for the tournament, in spite of the lack of rainfall that we have experienced here in Alpine. The fairways and bunkers are very good, the rough makes a difference and the greens were rolling well.
I also want to thank the clubhouse, grille workers and volunteers for their outstanding job. All of the meals and tournament preparations were well executed and successful.
