FRANK POTTLE THE WINNER
Takes Chief Cup in First Annual Village
JTonea, Lyona, Baxter, Carroll and
Winslow Win Division and
HE first annual Village
golf tournament was a
glorious success from
start to finish, and what
the event lacked in num
bers it made up in enthusiasm. This
was confined not alone to the participants
but to many onlookers as well. The fin
ish of the first round of match play and
the posting of the handicap scores was
watched by a company which crowded
the club house verandas and many of
the close matches were followed from
beginning to end by interested galleries
'Medal play scores were forgotten for
the most part, but stroke for stroke bat
tles were the rule rather than the excep
tion, and in many cases a single putt on
the home green, decided the right to bear
away the coveted prize.
A number of those who qualified for
the third division had never before tried
to hit a ball as a glance at the qualifica
tion scores will show, but they persevered
the spirit , of close contest keeping
interest at high pitch.
Amusing features there were without
number, one of the most laughable being
the pair which landed at the tenth or
the pond tee, and pelted balls into the
still water until forced to turn back for
an additional supply.
The contestants qualified by gross
scores in divisions of eight, the winners
and runners-up in each receiving cups.
Cups were also given to the winners of
the consolation divisions made up of the
losers in the first round of match play,
in addition to the prizes offered in the
medal play handicap.
The division winners were Frank 13.
Pottle, Dr. C. D. Jones and Thos. J.
Lyons. Chas. Baxter, Henry J. Carroll
and E. Winslow secured the consolation
cups. The runner-up cups went to

monies, the visitors being presented to
him by Mr. Leonard Tufts and Resident
