SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – What a fantastic day on the fairway for the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 51st Hackers Golf Tournament, held on July 13 at Crown Point Country Club. 18 teams hit the course, for a total of 72 players this year. A great time was had by all, and the weather was, thankfully, cooperative, with no rain. The field was split into two divisions, allowing for four first-place winning teams.
Winners in Flight A were: gross, Team Sigl, consisting of David Sigl, Bay Wheeler, Jeremy Sigl, and Tony Moriglioni; and net, Team Claremont Savings Bank, consisting of Justin Provost, Jake St. Pierre, Greg Soho, and Sean Long.
For Flight B, the winners were: gross, Team Black River Produce, consisting of Matt Elsesser, Kyle Price, Rich Cutia, and Justin Lewis; and net, Team Senior Solutions, consisting of Lori Lintner, Moira Ennen, Susan Daigneault, and Linden Ide.
A big thank you to Ford of Claremont, the hole-in-one contest sponsor – alas, nobody sank a hole-in-one on the 18th hole to win a vehicle this year, but everyone had a lot of fun trying.

A shoutout and thanks also to the banquet sponsor, Mascoma Bank; scorecard sponsor, WCFR Your Hometown Classic Hits; cart sponsor, Springfield Housing Authority; beer cart sponsor, Black River Coffee Bar; longest drive sponsor, Black River Innovation Campus; and player gifts sponsor, Pearl Street Creative Studio.
