Fauquier Springs Country Club in Warrenton was busy with tournament golf last weekend with the annual husband/wife stroke play on Saturday and the opening qualifying rounds of the Oldsmobile Scramble on Sunday.
In the scramble, the foursome of Jim Clarke, Richard Eaton, Bill Chipman and Mike Reeves, all of Warrenton, won the men's championship flight with an 18-under 54 and earned a berth in the regional qualifying event at Stoneleigh Golf Club Sept. 1. The winner of that event will get a trip to the nationals at Walt Disney World in Orlando later this year.
Foursomes were divided into flights based on their handicap. A group with a handicap of 19 or higher had four strokes subtracted from its final score. On the other end of the scale, groups with handicaps of 4 or lower had four strokes added to the foursome's final tally.
The scramble also had a gross score division that did not involve handicaps. The foursome of Randall Jones, Bob Leazer, J.B. Carter and Tom McDermott, all from Warrenton, won that event with a 12-under 60.
Saturday, Tim Gentry and Lyn Herdt of Fairfax won the annual husband/wife stroke play tournament with a gross score of 8-over 71 in the scramble format.
Jim and Betsy Strader of Fairfax won the handicap division with a 2-under 69.

Loudoun Golf and Country Club held its annual President's Cup tournament last weekend, with Mike Toomey of Leesburg winning the men's championship division and Patsy Mays of Manassas taking the women's crown.

Tom DeLuca of Sterling, Ken Rea and Bob Howe won the other men's flights for golfers with higher handicaps. Theresa Higgins of Herndon won the other women's flight with a score of 179.
