Janni wins Re/Max Open

Champion Lakes Golf hosted the Re/Max Open, which was well supported by the community.

The cream rose to the top of the leader board as Champion Lakes Golf and Country Club held their annual Re/Max Open on Saturday.

Sixty players teed it up at the links in Champion Lakes and when the last putt dropped, former three-time Zone 1 junior golf champion, Gary Janni out of Redstone, took the low gross honours by shooting a 3-under 69, while Steve Johnson finished two shots back, good enough for low net.

The 18-hole tournament also featured a $10,000 hole-in-one on the second hole par 3, but no one claimed the elusive prize. The round was followed up by a dinner and door prizes as well as awards for the top shooters in the various flights.

“We had a ton of prizes,” said Champion Lakes manager and head pro Kevin Nesbitt. “It was really well supported by the community for sure.”

In the first flight Lindsay Walker shot low gross, while Ed Wilcox nabbed low net. Mike Nelson took home low gross honours in the second flight with Ron Weir claiming low net. The third flight trophy went to Darryle Kohlman with low gross and Ray Porcellato garnered low net. Ken Linstein won low gross in the fourth flight and Ken Warzocha miraculously shot low net.
