This past weekend, the National Tour headed out to Riverwalk Golf Club. Our participants played the Mission course as their front nine & Friars course as their back. These courses boast mature stands of palm, oak and eucalyptus trees frame undulating fairways and manicured greens, with numerous wetland areas, nearly 100 bunkers and an array of picturesque water features – including four lakes and the San Diego River – creating both strategic diversity and a visually stunning backdrop for golf. Let’s see how they did:

Our card-offs are determined by second day low, with Claire taking home second and Victoria taking home third.
