The 2019 ATRA annual Golf Tournament got off to a cool start Thursday morning in Las Vegas. Frost on the course delayed eager golfers from the scheduled 8:00 a.m. scramble. Temps finally allowed groups to begin teeing off from the first hole and the delay was soon forgotten.
Turns out that the Angel Park Palm course was in great condition offering just the right challenge for our group. The winning team of Manesh Batra, Jay Shingala, Nell Shingala, Alex Fink and Tony Falco carded a 12 under round of 60! Mike Brown, Joe Messana, John Stream and Hector Gonzales recorded the 2nd place round with a 64. The Longest Drive was awarded to Tony Falco and Nell Shingala won Closest to the Pin honors.
Event coordinator, Joe DeSantino did another outstanding job with the entire event from transportation to and from the hotel, lunch, specialty prizes, including a chance to win $30,000 for a hole-in-one contest, and event sponsorship.
A part of the proceeds from the tournament were again donated to the Las Vegas chapter of the Ronald McDonald House. Tournament sponsors included Precision International, GEARS Magazine and Seal Aftermarket Products.
Next year’s event has been scheduled for Saturday October 10th in Nashville. For more information and sponsorship opportunities, contact Joe DeSantino at Joed@atragolf.com.
