— It was a beautiful weekend for golf as Yampa Valley Golf Course kicked off its tournament season with sunny skies and low scores.

YVGC was host to the Dirt Hog Scramble on Saturday, pitting 20 teams of four golfers against one another in a scramble format. In the end, the team of Tim Boyle, Grant Corey, Brett Etzler and Scott Kitchen posted the lowest score, a 55.

Bud Bower, Shane Camilletti, Joe Padon and Kyle Sorenson took first place in the net score competition, with a 49.8 after shooting 56 as a team. One other team broke 60 in the gross score — the group of Dan Brown, Pete Heuer, Glenn Navratil and Austin Zimmerman.

It was the first tournament on the schedule for Yampa Valley Golf Course. The tournament season really kicks into gear during June and July.

Next up at the golf course is the Ladies Club Early Bird Eclectic on May 22 and 29.
