The 2011 Fairview Mountain Senior Men's Tournament got off to a great start this year under a sunny sky and a temperature of about 22 degrees. Pretty comfortable!
We once again had a full contingent of 128 Senior golfers who competed on a golf course that had been excellently prepared by Superintendent Art Riome, Assist. Brad Turnbull, and the entire grounds crew. The greens were fast and the rough tough, and now the temperature has peaked at 33. Very warm.

What an incredible day Wednesday June 29th turned out to be.
