On a beautifull cool spring day in April , the Elms won the 1st competion of 2021 in a commanding 11 1/2 to 3 1/2 outcome over the Oaks. The Teams played 9 holes of better ball, and 9 holes of Chapman alternate shot.

  • 9 holes of team best ball ( 2 Oaks vs. 2 Elms, best ball per hole)
  • 9 holes of Chapman alernate shot (2 Oaks and 2 Elms: both hit tee shots; bothe players hit their partners tee shot; then alternate shot by team until ball holed)
