Graeagle Men’s Golf Association Guys and Gals Couples Tournament was held Aug. 18 and 20. Sixteen two-person teams divided into two flights competed in the event. On the first day, the net better ball of the twosome on each hole counted as the team score, but on the second day, both net scores counted toward the total. The overall champions were determined by the low gross better ball on the first day, combined with the low gross of both balls on the second day.
