River Ridge 3.26.22

The largest field we have ever had, and the competitors were met with some chilly temps, stiff winds, and a LOT of high-quality competition

Firstly, a HUGE shoutout to Frank Zappulla!
The new Head Pro and in his first week had to put up with us!
With years of local experience at Continental Golf, Hope Valley CC, and Pine Hollow, River Ridge is in great hands!

With 68 golfers in the field and 18 more on the waitlist, I am so humbled with the interest in the RDUgolf Tour and appreciate all of you for being a part of this!

This event also hosted one of the lowest average handicap of any event; the competition was fierce on both the Net and Gross side and tons of credit given to most for aptly navigating the 15-25 MPH winds!

If this is a sign of what’s to come, this season should be a fun test for everyone!

Congratulations to


D. McDowell took 1st NET with -2, 70 after starting his round with 7 straight pars and limiting damage to no more than a bogey on any other holes!

S. Beamer took 1st Gross with Even, 72. With 5 birdies on the back-9, including 3 consecutive birds on 16, 17, 18 to cap off a hell of a round with stiff Gross competition!
