The annual Woodstock Academy Centaur Classic Golf Tournament at the Quinnatisset Country Club in Thompson had the weather on its side this year.
And a full field of golfers as well as 144 turned out to play some golf and help The Academy raise funds for its athletic programs.
“I was very happy,” said Woodstock Academy associate head of school for advancement, Jon Sturdevant. “I think this was the best tournament, certainly, since I’ve been here. We had perfect weather, a great field, great sponsors and everyone had a good time.”
Warm weather and sunshine greeted the golfers, a far cry from last year’s monsoon-like conditions which ended the tournament a few holes early for most of the teams who participated.
The good weather conditions were mirrored by those of the course itself.
“The course is in great condition. Mike Pizetti and the whole staff at Quinnatisset did a great job for us. We also had a great team of volunteers from the Academy that made this a very smooth year,” Sturdevant said.
The conditions showed in the scoring.
The foursome of Dan Gomes, Pete Cunha, Josh Peach and Doug Daigneault combined to turn in a 15-under par, 57 on their scorecard in the scramble event.
The quartet had eagles on the par-5 fourth and sixth holes, 11 birdies and five pars in their winning effort.
Second place was a tie between two teams.
The foursome of Chad Schofield, Luke Milanese, Keith Shrayer and Al Remekie finished equal to that of George Amenabar, Steve Keller, Jay Gerum and Scott Johndrow at 14-under, 58.
Just one stroke back of those two teams were two other foursomes.
Bob Borski, Ken Arpin, Dave Makie, and Jeff Child tied with Tim Rosa, Matt Peal, Richard Pearson, and Nick Sulda at 13-under, 59.
“(The proceeds) are going to help a variety of athletic needs. I don’t believe that (Woodstock Academy athletic director) Sean (Saucier) has identified one area that it will go to,” Sturdevant said. “Last year, it helped us re-develop our North campus training room which was a big project.”
