The second ALC Eagle Invitational was played at Nob North Golf Course in Cohutta, Georgia October 30/31. The weather was seasonal, but cool. The course was in great shape. PGA of America Professional Eric Hester and his staff did a fantastic job of hosting the event. Tee markers and hole locations were changed for each round, and they mowed the greens between rounds 1 and 2, resulting in scores increasing by an average of 3 shots. Few courses do little more than allot tee times for college tournaments, and we greatly appreciate Nob North setting up the tournament properly.
