Cowen wins Spring Classic

Mary Domm of Ayton was the ladies division championship and Herb Cowen of Pike Lake was the overall men's low gross champion at the 5th Annual Brian Wise Spring Classic Opening Day Golf Invitational.

Herb Cowen of Pike Lake Golf Centre fired a 72 (+2) to win the overall low gross championship at the 5th Annual Brian Wise Spring Classic at Whispering Hills Golf Club.

His closest competition came from fellow Pike Lake member Steve Stein, who carded a 74.

The full results are listed below.

The tournament, held May 26, was actually the 42nd Spring Classic held under the club ownership of the Day family. However, it is now the fifth spring opening day tournament without long-time member Brian Wise.  The Spring Classic was renamed the “Brian Wise Spring Classic” in 2014.

“We sure believe that Brian blessed us yet again this year with the absolute best weather that we could have ever asked for our spring opening day member/guest tournament,” the Day family stated in a news release.

Former Whispering Hills Golf Club owner Keith Stein (1972-1976) celebrated his 80th birthday in the clubhouse with family and friends after the tournament prize presentation and enjoyed a huge cake supplied by the Cowen family of Pike Lake.
