Zac Pool led the pack for two days, shooting 133 to capture the Championship flight at the 29th annual FireLake Classic. The tournament, hosted by the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and FireLake Golf Course, had 85 players in six divisions compete this year.
Chris Chesser, FireLake Golf Course Manager, commented on this year’s successful competition. “The FireLake Classic is important to the golf course and the tribe because it is our ‘club championship’. We have a lot of locals and tribal members come out each year, so a lot of people know one another. It is a good atmosphere.”
In the other five flights, the winners were as follows:
“I always enjoy the FireLake Classic and this year was no exception,” said second place finisher in B Flight, Bill Lawerance. “Superintendent Derron Day and his staff did an excellent job preparing the golf course for the tournament. FireLake looks better than it has in years and I’m excited about the future of my home course.”
