MULLET BAY:--- Jan Peter Holtland, Andy Holmes, and Keith Graham took top honors during the third annual Steve Mix Memorial golf tournament at the Mullet Bay Golf Course. This event organized by the St. Maarten Golf Association SMGA drew 12 teams, each with 3 golfers to the course.
The St. Maarten Golf Association hosted the event in memory of Steve Mix, an avid golfer. The 12 teams fought a very close and competitive battle. Between the winners and the team that came in last, was only an 11-stroke difference.
Eventually, the Winners shot a stunning 65-stroke net score. Runner-up was the team comprised of Buzz Adamski, Tini Tinitali, and Geoff Heilman one stroke higher. Similarly, third place was taken by Marie and Chris Gibbons and James Park, both of who came in with the same 66 net scores, but with an even lower average handicap for their team.
Steve Mix was remembered, in a similar style in which he would sometimes play golf, as all contestants had to play their last hole barefoot while putting on the green with their drivers. Steve was also a past president of the SMGA. As such the passing of a great person and asset to St. Maarten golf and to the island was commemorated this year as well.
