Hideout Golf Course hosts exciting Amateur and Shootout tournaments
One hundred and ten golfers descended on the Hideout Golf Course this past weekend for the annual Hideout Amateur Golf Tournament.
The two-day event, held July 27 and 28, provided some exciting golf and, for one golfer, a second hole-in-one in as many years at the Hideout. Last year, Jake Francom aced hole #11 in the Hideout Shootout. This year, although he didn’t place in the top five in the Amateur, he once again hit a hole-in-one, this time on hole #17.
The Amateur consisted of four flights determined by skill level: the Championship Flight, A Flight, B Flight, and C Flight.
Scores are reported as “gross,” or actual amount of shots, and “net,” which is the golfer’s gross score minus their handicap.
Payouts in the Amateur were for the top five golfers in both the gross and net categories and were for golf shop credit: $500 for first place, $400 for second, $300 for third, $200 for fourth, and $100 for fifth.
Tight competition led to a four-way tie at the top of the gross score leaderboard in the Championship Flight.
Josh Seow, Brent Simons, Tyler Weight, and Bruce Wright all posted a two-day total of 148. Zac Hansen’s 154 gross put him in fifth place.
The low net score in the Championship Flight was Rob Wilcox’s 142, just one stroke ahead of Josh Andreasen. Jared Fry and Brian Sturdevant both shot a 144 to tie for third place, and Pat Bird rounded out the top five with a 146 net.
In A Flight, the lowest gross score (and lowest score of the tournament) was a 147, scored by Jayson Hiatt. Second place went to Chris Reed (155), followed by Andy Worthington (158), Bryan Halliday (162), and Brandon Powell (163).
The low net score in A Flight went to Eric Anderson for his 137. Steve Jenner was just one stroke behind in second place. Third place belonged to Jesus Paez for a 141, fourth was a 142, shot by Gary Milton, and the fifth place net score was Michael Parker’s 146.
B Flight enjoyed some tight competition also, and was led by Rick Tate’s 169 gross. He was followed by a second place tie between Randy Argyle and Dan Sumsion who scored 172 each. Ken Tate grabbed the fourth-lowest gross score with a 173 and Juan Tsosie finished in fifth place with a 174.
The lowest five net scores in B Flight went to Dell Hunter with a 139, Doug Voss (140), Corey Halliday (144), Monty Voss (145), and Steve Tuttle (149).
The C Flight gross score champion was Paul Jeo, who scored a 169. Second went to Sage Stroder for a 172, third to Eve Ligon (180), fourth was Jeff Dent (183), and Rick Gilmore and Sy Harrison tied for fifth place with a 186 each.
The low net score for C Flight was snagged by Dustin Jones with a 127. Second place was a five-way tie at 141 for Kenny Heinze, John Krovoza, Rick Powell, Alan Reed, and Ronnie Smith.
Before the Amateur, on Friday, July 26 the Hideout hosted the Shootout, a two-man best ball tournament. The event attracted 118 golfers who began with two shotgun starts.
The A Flight title was claimed by Tyler Weight and Zac Hansen with a gross score of 60.
The A Flight net championship was a tie between David Hancock and Rex Hancock, and Jeff Nielson and Brian Sturdevant. Both teams scored a 59.
Randy Argyle and Kent Packard grabbed the B Flight low gross score with a 70. The net champions were Brandon Powell and Jonathan Hosman with their 56.
