Golf champions announced

The Annual Hillsboro Golf Course Club championship was held Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4-5 at the Hillsboro Municipal Golf Course. There were 36 participants this year.

“There was a lot of wind both days so our scores were lower than other years,” said Doug Dick, tournament organizer.

Philip Thieseen was this year’s winner with a score of 69 on Saturday and 74 on Sunday. Former champion Brock Neiman came in second. Tim Hein won for handicap champion. Handicap runner up was Mike Gherkin.
