The Quail Creek Veterans Golf Association Battle of the Branches/Club Championship Tournament was held April 2. Open to all residents and guests, the tournament is always a favorite to stir up friendly rivalries among veterans and friends. The military branches compete in teams for bragging rights and the QCVGA member individual scores are also used to establish low gross, low net rankings for the honor of 2016 QCVGA Club Champion.
The Navy team, Ted Schelenski, Bob Morgan, Pete Delcour, Bob Marshall, Len Brzinski, Dallas Sween, Jerry Hayes, Paul Rogers, Tom Contreras, Ray LaBrec, Peter Prairie, Tom Royer and Charlie Shultheis scored a net average of 71.92 to take the 2016 Battle of the Branches honors. In individual competition for club championship, Brian Kuehn scored a gross 76 and Dave Burrows scored a net 64.
