Drohen took home the Senior trophy by one shot, with the defending senior champ Ahern settling for second.
It’s going to be mighty tough to wrest the Russ Conway Cup team championship trophy from Atkinson CC.
Led by top-fivers Joe Leavitt, Nick Pandelena and Rich Campiola, Atkinson defeated Bradford CC by seven shots.
MVP for the week
A long list of people make the Healey Memorial a happening.
Atkinson Director of Golf Peter Doherty could earn the MVP award as could the Haverhill Country Club greens staff.
Haverhill was deluged by rain on Wednesday night. It came down in two different manners – torrents and buckets.
Somehow, the staff got the course back into impeccable condition.
Here’s hoping that the rest of the premier clubs in the region host the Healey and take on the opportunity to show themselves off, like Haverhill, Indian Ridge and Atkinson have done the past three years.
Yesterday, $1,000 scholarships were awarded to top student-golfers: Ryan Mahoney of Atkinson, Scott Farley and Ryan Paris of Bradford CC and Andrew Robbins of Haverhill CC.
This is an all-volunteer venture.
Courses/players pay their entry fees to cover prize money, trophies and the final dinner. All the rest goes to the scholarships for a great cause.
Players winning pro shop credits will receive them at either Haverhill Country Club or Atkinson Country Club. Here were the top winners:
Joe Leavitt ($500) — $400 runner-up, $100 winning team member
Nick Pandelena ($350) — $200 for 4th, $50 Round 1 co-medalist, $100 winning team member
Rich Campiola ($375) — $175 for fifth, $100 Round 2 medalist, $100 winning team member
At Haverhill CC
