The 2019 Tartan Tourney was held on Saturday (Aug. 17) at the Valle Escondido Golf Course, Taos. It was a beautiful day - sunny, warm, no wind, good conditions for low scores.
The tournament was a four-person scramble with open and mixed divisions. There were 12 teams in this nine-hole tournament and a 9 a.m. shotgun start. A bagpiper started the festivities by piping some tunes while strolling up the first fairway. A free mulligan was awarded to those wearing a kilt. Many people dressed up in their highland's best.
The open division champion team was made up of Dominic Martinez, Marty Lucero, Jonathan Stewart and Jim Fambro with an 8 under par of 28. The mixed division champion team was comprised of Edie Elkjer, Bill Elkjer, Rosalinda Lacy and Randall Korinek with a 34. The course was in good shape due to hard work of groundskeepers led by Scott Boomer. The clubhouse offered a Scottish-style lunch and refreshments served by Tom Dorris and Charlene Krick.
The last tournament for this year will be the Labor Day Tournament on Saturday (Aug. 31). This will be a 12-hole tourney with four different formats: scramble, best ball, alternate shot and individual scoring. This will be a staggered start with tee times starting at 9 a.m. All are invited to come and join.
