Houghton Lake hosted a Mid-Michigan Golf Conference jamboree on Monday. McBain and McBain Northern Michigan Christian both attended the match, with the Ramblers hitting for a 397 and taking sixth and the Comets hit a 400 and were seventh.

The Ramblers were led by Kaleb Keathley with an 89, Matt Belleville shot a 92, Jacob Meekhof shot a 105, Drew Vana came in with a 111 and Alex Utecht shot a 113.

For the Comets, Grant Pogue led the way with an 86, Coleman Bassett came in with a 99, Carson Bassett carded a 106 and Caiden Platz shot a 109.
“We played a little bit better today than last Friday and most of that has to due with the fact that we’ve been able to get out on the course on a regular basis,” NMC head coach Dave Skinner said.

On Friday NMC played at the Terry Thompson Invitational, hosted by Lake City at the Missaukee Golf Course. The Comets finished with a team score of 429.

Pogue led the team with an 83, Carson Bassett shot a 102 and Coleman Bassett added a score of 112.

“Despite the weather and the water, we really needed this match to get some much needed time on the course,” Skinner said. “Our first year golfers are working on their swings and I’m happy about their progress.”
