NorthStar Golf Club Tournament Results
At NorthStar Golf Club we had 31 golfers come out to play a difficult course in extremely windy conditions. The sun made it’s debut this year and brought very blustery conditions with it. The wind blew any where from 20 to 30 mph which made the lower scores even more impressive.
In Division 1 Justin Arens showed his ball striking skills on the front 9 hitting 7 greens in regulation and posted a 38 going out on a difficult front nine. Justin then birdied 10 and didn’t look back. After just one more bogey and parring out Justin came in with even par 36 for a winning total of 74. This was Justin’s first win of the season. Matt Malone came in 2nd with 79 highlighted by 2 birdies on the front and a closest to the pin on the par 3 17th.
