KGCSA wins Powell Cup

 Team KGCSA defeated Team Bluegrass by a score of 12-9 at Harmony Landing CC on April 25th. It was a battle that came down to the final match but the Bluegrass was no match for the KGCSA brotherhood. Stephen Babcock & staff had Harmony in great condition for the battle. A big "thank you" to Stephen and his staff, Pro Mike Thomas and the chef for a nice bar b q spread before the golf.
