As hosts of the Three-Rivers Golf Association 2013 championship Saturday, Aug. 17, the Little Bear Country Club had the home course advantage against seven other solid clubs, and used that advantage to turn in a solid overall performance.

Little Bear finished with a 966 team score on their home course in Wyoming, and placed fifth at the eight-team event claimed by Anamosa’s Fawn Creek who made their way through the challenging par-72 layout with a 915 total.

Little Bear finished ahead of Maquoketa (974), Lowden 3/30 (977) and Preston Plum River (1,018) in one of the Wyoming club’s top finishes over the last several years at the Three-Rivers event.

Chuck Shada, a longtime Anamosa Fawn Creek golfer, led the way for the host team coming through with a one-over par card of 73, which included a sizzling two-under par round 34 on the back nine holes.

Shada opened his day with a 39 on his first tour of duty through the Little Bear course that saw fast green and windy conditions.

Doug Dammann (39-36) and Riley Williams (39-36) tied for runner-up medalist honors for the Little Bear team after each tallied cards of three-over par 75.

Kevin Wright followed with the third-best score on the Little Bear team firing a 79 (38-41) while Mike Williams added an 80 (39-41).

Kasey Brecht (44-37) and Terry Williams each tallied scores of 81 while Derek Snead made his way through his home course with a card of 83 (41-42).

Lee Williams scored an 84 (47-37) shaving 10 strokes from his score with a sizzling 37 on the second nine.

Dave Fall (44-41), Don Topping (40-45) and Nick Vacek (42-43) all tallied scores of 85 for the Little Bear team while Justin Bomia carded an 86 (44-42).

Rounding out the Little Bear scoring was Kevin Kiburz, who tallied an 88 (45-43) on the near picture-perfect day for golf.

Following Fawn Creek’s Three-Rivers championship winning 915 total saw Peosta Timberline finish as the league runner-up with a 933 total, 18 shots shy of the leader.

Bellevue finished third with a 945 team card while Calamus-Wheatland’s Wapsie Oaks was fourth after their 953 performance.

Fawn Creek also dominated the individual awards as Anamosa’s Mike Carrier topped the Three-Rivers field with a sensational three-under par round of 69 while teammate Mike McGreevy was runner-up with a 70.

Shada’s round earned him a top-10 finish as his 73 was tied for seventh overall.

Dammann and Riley Williams’s rounds of 75 also placed them in the top-20 finishing in a tie for 13th overall.
