It was another fantastic day at Queenstown Harbor and John Anderes and his staff had the River Course in excellent condition for the annual Ryder Cup style event, the Chesapeake Challenge.
Before the matches began, Nicole Harriman gave a presentation on the importance of skin care and taught the group how to recognize, prevent and treat various conditions that may arise during normal work conditions for superintendents and their staff. A key message to the group was for each individual to develop a relationship with a dermatologist and get check-ups regularly. These check-ups can help with early detection and treatment.
Following Nicole's presentation was the traditional BBQ lunch and trash talk before the matches. After a win that included a presidential playoff in 2017, MAAGCS was poised to defend the Trophy for the first time in many years.
With four matches remaining, both teams were tied with 9 points apiece. While one match was halved, MAAGCS was able to come up victorious in the final three matches. ESAGCS finished with a total of 9.5 points and MAAGCS finished with a total of 12.5 points and their first successful title defense since the events inception.
A special thank you goes out to all of the players, Todd Cowing, Joe Haskins and to the Queenstown Harbor staff for coordinating the event.
