Thirty Seven teams teed it up at Dalhousie Golf Club on September 19th and 20th for this
year’s Benson Two Man Championship. The weather was in the mid to upper 90s both days,
making it feel like mid July rather than mid September There were 16 teams in the Open
Division, which played about 6400 yards, and the Net Only Division had 22 teams playing from
about 6100 yards. The Old Hickory Golf Club was extremely well represented, with 12 teams in
the event.
Day One
Day One featured a Four Ball round for the competitors. The Open Division featured some
great play, with Winghaven’s Didier Villard and Doug Hord shooting a Gross score of 4 Under
68, as did the team of Kurt Calvert and Drew Forrester from Algonquin Golf Club. Close behind
was the Whitmoor team of Brian Boehle and Ryan Robertson at 69. The two Dalhousie teams,
consisting of Brevin Giebler and Aaron Coon, along with Buddy Allen and Tom Sinak carded
71s, to tie for third place.
On the Net Side of the Open Division, the Calvert/Forrester team was an 8 Under 64, with the
