Congratulations to Bill Baum. On Sunday July 9, Bill had his first hole in one on #15 using a 6 hybrid.
Congratulations to our reigning Club Champion, Dan Giliforte who recently shot a "63". This is a new course record at Brighton.
I would like to thank everyone that participated in the 2017 B.P.G.C. Invitational,(we had 104 golfers) and all the others that helped out. This event takes months of hard work to put together and I hope I don't miss anyone. If I do I apologize if I missed someone, it doesn't mean that your contributions were not appreciated. We hope all will consider returning for next year's event.
