Golf Tournament 2018

Golf Tournament 2018
Hiroko Lockheimer

The 15th anniversary Outreach Scholarship Golf Tournament held on May 26, 2018, was a record-breaker in many ways. Sixty-one golfers, the largest number since 2006, including a record 16 parents, enjoyed a round of golf on a fine sunny spring day at the beautiful Chiba Birdie Club. 

Bret Dandoy, parent of three alumni, took home the winning trophy for the second time since 2009 with a record low net score of 68.2 (gross 73). This tied the 68.2 low net performance by Alex Nakao ’04 when he shot a 5-under par in 2007. In close second was Daiki Hirano with a net 69.6 (gross 72). In third place was Tetsuro Hayashi, parent of Nishimachi kindergartner, with a net 71.4 (gross 87). The special 15th anniversary 15th place award presented by 15th consecutive year sponsor Kiyoshi Endo, went to Daiki’s brother, Tensei Hirano. Congratulations to all!

Many thanks go to the participants and tournament sponsors. Special thanks to the Aoshima Family, Ishiyama Family, Kiyoshi Endo, Kaori Aizawa, and Chiba Birdie Club who worked behind the scenes to make the day a great success. The event raised a record ¥2,120,000, all of which will be directed to the Outreach Scholarship Program and will be used to support deserving students at Nishimachi.
