2012 men’s Invitational

Thank you to all Members and guests who participated in the Club at La Costa’s 2012 Men’s Invitational! Special thanks to this year’s Tournament

Committee chairman, David Oas, as well as Dan Rose, Dane Chapin and Ralph Rischman for all of their efforts in making this event a success.

Congratulations also to all of the flight winners who qualified for the five-hole horserace. Ten teams battled it out and when all was said and done,

the team of Todd Malkus and his guest Ron Gershwind emerged as the 2012 Invitational Champions in a dramatic finish. Well done!
