GT Car Wash Tournament

A grey morning greeted a sold out field of 128 players as they got set to tee off in this year’s GT Car Wash – Birchbank Golf Membership Giveaway Tournament. A few drops of rain couldn’t dampen the teams as they were all here for the fun and friendship plus the chance to have their name drawn for a free 2017 Birchbank Golf membership.

The last name pulled and winner of the 2017 Birchbank Golf membership was Kyle Mace.

Thanks to everyone on our Bistro, Pro Shop and Grounds staffs for making the event possible, to Dennis & Margo for overseeing everything and to GT Car Wash for once again sponsoring this very popular event.
