Repeat Winners In Men’s Heart: Congratulations to the team of David Russ, Andrew Yee, Scott Dagnall, Brandon Petraroia and Craig Dagnall who returned as defending champions and again successfully won the 2016 Uplands Men’s Heart Tournament. Last year they were the tournament’s low gross winner. This year that category was eliminated but they were the low net winners in the best two ball competition.
Bruce Thom Honoured: At the Men’s Heart Tournament Dinner on July 24th long standing member Bruce Thom was recognized for his significant contribution to the success of the Uplands Golf Club Heart Tournament. Bruce became a club member in 1975 and in 1993 was asked by the Board of Directors to take over the Heart Tournament. With Bruce at the reins the tournament moved forward dramatically and passed the $1 million mark in fund raising. He was its chair for 15 years and continued right through to 2015 in offering counsel to the Heart Committee and assisting with their initiatives. He was recognized for being what Upland’s community spirit is all about.
