Ken Turnbull’s team (Ken, Chuck Selman, Damian Shaw, and Jeff Cooper) trounced the competition in the 2006 TapRooT(R) Summit Golf Tournament.

They shot a 66! They chipped in for a birdie! They were unstoppable…

I thought my team was doing OK when we came in with a 1 over 73. Sorry … We were WAY OFF the pace.

Ken Turnbull’s team turned in a score of 6 under (the next best team was Brian Locker’s All Canadian Team – 3 under).

The course – Bent Creek Golf Course near Gatlinburg, TN – was designed by Gary Player and rewards accuracy – not distance. There was water and sand galore. These seemed like a magnet for my ball.

Dana Smith won both the Closest to the Hole and the Longest Drive trophies. Great job Dana!

We had several novice golfers (Yes- their first time on any golf course) and everybody had a GREAT time!


For those planning for the 2007 TapRooT(R) Summit Golf Tournament, it will be on Friday afternoon, April 28, at the The Republic Golf Club in San Antonio. (See http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/cp/1/en/hd/satps)

This is a new course (rated best new course in 2003 by Avid golfer) that rewards long hitters – it has wide fairways and large greens. So practice your distance game and come to hit (the longest hole is 624 yards with three others over 543 yards). For the course layout see: http://www.republicgolfclub.net/Default.aspx?tabid=786
