Dam Cup winners
Blueberry Hill Golf Club and Kane Country Club recently came together to play the 2nd annual “Dam Cup.” The event was a Ryder Cup-type format with the first day’s competition played at Blueberry Hill. The front nine was a 2-man alternate shot format and the second nine was a 2-man better ball format. The 12-man teams competed for six total points for the day. The result was Blueberry gaining the lead at 5 1/2 points to 1/2 points for Kane. The second day was hosted at the Kane Country Club, featuring 12 singles matches. Needing only four points to win the cup away from Kane that had won the first annual event, the Blueberry team struggled in the first eight matches.The Kane team made a comeback winning seven points on its home course. The cup was secured for Blueberry when Roy Swanson and Joe Nelson won their matches. Blueberry Hill won the cup with a score of 10 1/2 points to 7 1/2 for Kane. This was the identical score with which Kane had won the previous year. The event is played for the sole purpose of pride in the home courses and to display the cup for one more year in the clubhouse. Blueberry’s team members, from left, in front, include Jeff Eaton, Roy Swanson, Fuzzy Merenick, John Wortman, Mark Butina, and Dave Andersen and, in back, Joe Nelson, Kyle Wilson, Tim Swanson, Sam Marek, captain Buck Monaghan, Nate Sandberg, and Ryan Nuhfer.
