Sunshine for A.R.C.H.

What a fabulous day for the ARCH Tournament Saturday February 15. Warm weather kept all of the golfers in good spirits as they fought for first, second and third place with a Texas Scramble. An excellent 3-course lunch was served followed by the prize giving hosted by Mike Munden, General Manager.
