The 2016 OLCA/ASLA golf tournament was held on June 3 at the Langdon Farms Golf Club. The revamped tournament was well attended this year and took advantage of an early-morning tee time and fantastic summer weather. Over 120 contractors, architects and vendors donned their golf gear and participated in an 18-hole best ball scramble. A unique phone based scoring application provided real time scores for the tournament helping to heighten the competition.
The tournament was followed by an awards ceremony and incredible lunch consisting of fried chicken and barbecue pork. Prizes were awarded to the top three finishing teams as well as closest to the pin and long drive participants. Awards were made to both men and women in each group. Winners walked away with gift certificates for both meals and gear from Langdon Farms as well as bottles of wine and clothing from several generous sponsors.
Hole in One prizes (although none were given) included trips to resort destinations across the country and a new 2017 GMC truck.
The ASLA highlight of the tournament was the lunch time raffle that produced the lone winning landscape architect. Tommy Solomon from 2 Ink Studio walked away with a brand new set of Nike irons. When asked if he was a golfer Solomon replied “I am now”!
