2017 City Park Championship – Tournament Results

Robert McCusker finishes strong with birdies on 14, 15, and 16 over Kevin Landry to take the 2017 City Park Championship on a cool and blustery Sunday.  Going into the final 9 on Sunday, Landry and McCusker found themselves tied until McCusker exerted himself with a string of birdies.  McCusker posted the only subpar round for the tournament with a 62 on Sunday giving him a two round total of 129.  Landry took the second spot (132) 7 shots ahead of the next third place spot.

Who designed BREC Golf Courses? Might be really surprised!

Compared to many cities within the USA that have public courses owned and operated by the Parks & Rec… BREC actually has a lot of famous architects involved in its history.  One that the citizen golfers of Baton Rouge can be proud of.

Craig Schreiner is a golf course architect that has designed or renovated over two dozen courses nationally.  Schreiner designed and built Beaver Creek.  He also did a complete renovation and building of J S Clark Golf Course; he has done several First Tees nationally.  He also did some renovation on City Park Golf Course by reconstructing two holes, adding irrigation, and installing tiff dwarf in the greens.

Tom Bendelow is one of the reasons City Park Golf Course is referred to as Historic City Park Golf Course.  Bendelow came over from Scotland during the time golf was beginning to be played in the USA.  Contributing to the growth of golf, Bendelow may have been the most prolific golf course designer and builder ever.  Bendelow has several courses that have hosted PGA, US Open, and Ryder Cup events.  City Park was one of the last courses he designed.  His name and stature in the game is enormous.

Robert Trent Jones is basically the icon of American golf course designers.  Easily recognized by golfers who seek out great challenges, Jones has designed and built some of the best courses in the country. Only two courses in Louisiana have his signature, and one is here in Baton Rouge – Santa Maria Golf Course.  Supremely symbolic of his style, this golf course meets the standard of his basic philosophy… par is a good score.

2017 Icebreaker Tournament at City Park Results

The first tournament of 2017 was the Icebreaker at City Park.

Anna Heine and father Randall have back to back wins as they teamed up  to take the Harry Neese and now the 2017 opener Ice Breaker.  Windy conditions on a pesky City Park lay-out tested a full field for the event, but her swing held out and they managed a total 59 (-5) to take the title.
