The Los Alamos Golf Course hosted a team tournament over the Fourth of July holiday called Fairways and Fireworks.
“It was very fun,” Ted Ball said.
Ball and Paul Cook ran the tournament, which replaced the course’s old Atomic City Match Play tournament.
Fairways and Fireworks, which was a three-day tournament, had 48 golfers compete.
The golfers had a wide ranges of abilities.
Ball said they tried to divide them up evenly into four teams of 12 — a blue team, an orange team, a purple team and a yellow team.
The teams then played three different challenges.
The first day of the tournament, July 3, was a quota.
All of the golfers played 18 holes and, instead of trying to get the low score, the golfers scored points for bogeys, pars, birdies and eagles and tried to get the highest score.
The next two days of the tournament featured match play. Each team was broken into six teams of two and then they went head to head against another team and battled to win holes.
Saturday, the players on each team alternated shots.
Sunday, the players competed in a scramble, playing their best ball as they moved on.
After three days of golf, the blue team proved to be the victors.
Some more tournaments are on the Los Alamos Golf Course’s schedule.
