MAA Golf Tournament 2016

October 13, 2016

MAA Golf Tournament

A total of 67 members and staff participated in the 2016 MAA tournament, which was once again held at Bridges Golf Club in September, 2016.

Participants were permitted to enter their own teams for the Texas Scramble format. With no handicaps claimed, it was the foursome from Number Ten Architectural Group, comprised of Gabe Derksen, Greg Hasiuk, Brett Preun and Jesse Watson, who took home the trophy with a final score of 10 under par. In order to set the record straight, it must be hereby noted that, contrary to the announcements at the dinner that evening, it was actually the ‘A’ team from Northern Sky Architectural Group who finished second (not fourth), hot on the heels of the Number Ten group at only one stroke back. (For the inappropriate adjustment to their score card by the MAA’s Executive Director, who failed to recognize and credit their eagle on #5, sincere apologies are hereby offered again.)

Other winners, at an individual performance level, included Dustin Sharrow for the Men’s Closest to the Pin, Barb Boroskae for the Women’s Closest to the Pin, Matthew Trendota for the Men’s Straightest Drive contest and Jamie Streilein for Women’s Straightest Drive.
