A rare hole in one on the 321-yard par 4 12th hole during Sundayβs Scramble round of the 2011 Chataqua Best Ball & Scramble Golf Tournament at Chewelah Golf & Country Club was the difference-maker for the Chewelah team of Brenton Harting and Brett Sweet.
Propelled by Hartingβs ace, the duo fired a two-day total of 131 to capture the gross division in the championship flight.
Hartingβs hole in one on the challenging par 4 was the highlight of the tournament, which featured 98 two-man teams.
Finishing one shot behind Harting and Sweet was the team of Clark Mather (Tacoma) and Keith Ross (Spokane) at 132.
In the championship flight net division, the Greenwood, B.C. duo of Devin Hallstrom and Cody Loewen easily captured top honors with a 120 total.
According to tournament chairman, Bob Wellman, the usual big Chataqua field enjoyed the well-conditioned golf course and the northeast Washington weather last weekend.
βThe weather was great and the golf course was in excellent condition, thanks to course superintendent Tim Rowe and his capable staff,β Wellman said.
Chewelah PGA golf professional Jason Pitt thanked everyone for attending, and especially those who came from Florida (three golfers), Texas (one golfer), California (about seven competitors), Canada (eight entrants) and from throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Montana, Idaho, Oregon and from around Washington.
βThe entire staff and crew of the Chewelah Golf & Country Club want to thank everyone for attending this yearβs tournament and being part of this yearβs Chataqua activities,β Wellman added.
