The already established (= the second) Roima Golf Open championship was held on 24 August on the fantastic Rock golf course of Nokia River Golf.
This year, the victory of both divisions went to Jari Savolainen with an amazing Stableford score of 40 points and a gross score of 89.
Work preoccupations must have cut down the number of participants – it couldn’t have been for the weather, as for once it was on our side. Thus, the non-handicap stroke play championship and Stableford competition with handicap allowance were contested among four players. In addition to these, the event host Jari Sinivaara had organized two extra competitions: the longest drive and the closest pin. Of these, the longest drive was won by Merja on fairway 2 and the closest to the pin by Teppo on fairway 8. In addition, we saw two birdies during the competition, so the golfers did not have to play without refreshments.
