Youth and Adults Enjoy Golf Together

The Lincoln Municipal Gold Association held its annual Youth Adult Scotch Twosome Golf Tournament on July 25th and 26th at the Jim Ager Junior Golf Course. This tournament has been held annually for over 40 years and this year’s field was larger than past years with 45 teams entered. The unusual format makes for some fun and pressure for the teams consisting of one youth of ages 8 to 17 and one adult. The adult could be a dad, mom, grandparent, older sibling or just a friend. The format is true alternating shot, starting with the first tee shot and ending with the final putt. The teams compete on Saturday for a top 10 spot in their division in order to make the cut for Sunday. The tournament has one big shotgun start on Sunday with the younger divisions playing 9 holes and the older divisions playing 18. Following play all players had lunch, the kids received prizes, and then the medals were awarded to the top 3 teams in each division.
