Graeme Nelson shots 61 at Crown Isle – one stroke off the course record

Gentlemen’s Night at Crown Isle on June 28 belonged to Graeme Nelson. Graeme, whose goal is to play professionally, had his hard work ethic rewarded with an amazing low gross of 30 for the Prime Chop House.

Crown Isle’s own Rod Prieto won “Closest to the White Spot” on #6 for the White Spot Restaurant; Rod also had the longest drive on #8 “closest to the 250 yard Magic Circle” for BMO Nesbitt Burns. Mark Villanueva won the “hidden hole”on #4 (par 3) with a score of seven and also the LD on #1 for KP 13+ for McDonalds.
