ALTON/REMSEN On Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, a Ryder Cup competition was held at Remsen Golf Club and Sioux Golf and Country Club.

After Saturday, the Best Ball and Alternate formats ended in Remsen with a lead by Sioux Golf of 9 1/2 to 6 1/2 by the eight two-man teams from each course.

The event was continued in Alton on Sunday playing Best Shot and Singles Match Play formats. After the Alton teams stretched the lead to 28 points out of a possible 40, Sioux Golf and Country Club won the competition and will hold the traveling trophy until next year.

Both courses and their players would like to thank all the sponsors and anyone who helped put on the event. After the tournament was finished, there was an awards banquet and steak supper enjoyed by both teams.
