The Fitch Mountain Cup winners are determined by using the best of two out of three rounds played over the past three weeks and factoring in the golfer's course handicap.

Third flight winners with handicaps between 34-40 were Judy Somers (152), Joyce Jensch (158) and Sue Dickens (161).

Cronin finished the day by becoming the HWGC 2021 Club Champion, which represents the player's gross score for best of two rounds, Cronin's score was 152, runner-up was Anne Friedemann (172), Dee Whitehall (178) in first place, Julie Conklin (193) in second and McCaffrey (195) in third for the first flight.

Congratulations to all the winners and participants. HWGC is open to all players with any level of golf talent and any age. One of our members who was in the finals of both the Cup and Championship just turned 88 and she beats most of us nearly half her age. The group enjoys the sport of golf, the beautiful views of Healdsburg from the course and the fun social events.
