The Homeowner Guest Classic Invitational can always be counted on for a good time. And this year was no exception.
One of Black Butte Ranch’s oldest and most popular traditions was again played over the weekend. Played across three flights, the 36-hole tournament featured nine holes of scramble and nine holes of Chapman in Saturday’s first round at Glaze Meadow. On Sunday at Big Meadow, a final round of best ball determined the winner.
And as always, great food and drink as well as contests spread throughout the weekend only added to the enjoyment.
So who came out ahead?
