8th Annual Captain’s Cup

Kyle Beam, GHPB

The threat of rain couldn’t keep the sun – or the avid golfers – from coming out for the Port Bureau’s sold out 8th Annual Captain’s Cup Golf Tournament hosted on November 7, 2016. The weather prevailed as the four-player scrambles teed-off on BraeBurn Country Club’s beautiful, rolling green. The BraeBurn course lived up to its well-earned reputation as a superior place to play as teams competed throughout the afternoon. Players received a special, embroidered Titlest bag as a special gift!

Briggs & Veselka won first place gross score with players Jamie Sylvester, Andy Kuntz, Jason Ryan and Kal Abdallah. Briggs & Veselka’s commemorative plaque will be featured in the Port Bureau’s offices until the 2017 winner claims the spot. First place net went to the Rio Marine team of Tony Sansing, Michael McNeil, John Sansing and Bradon Pitre.

Additional team wins went to:
• Second place gross: Shamrock Marine (Tim Studdert, Jason Ellis, Joe Shotwell and Sean Wagner)
• Second place net: Suderman & Young Towing Company. (Chris Patterson, Matt Garza, Jeff Kindle and Francisco Gutierrez)
• Third place net: Berard Transportation (BJ Buchannan, Randy Berard, Les Koenning and Matt Fielder)

The Captain’s Cup tournament featured several contests for closest-to-the-pin, hole-in-one, and longest drive. While capturing the $10,000 hole-in-one prize remained elusive, C.A. Rousser hit a hole-in-one on our Big Cup hole to claim a $500 gift card sponsored by HDR. The longest drive was claimed by Jeremy Rose and closest-to-the-pin winners were Rick Bates, Cliff Walston, and Bob McHugh.

The Port Bureau extends hearty congratulations to the Captain’s Cup winners and thanks all the players for a great day of sport. In addition to our generous sponsors, we would also like to thank the Golf Committee for their hard work: Tim Studdert (Shamrock Marine), Dallas Hall (BB&T Branch Banking and Trust Company), Brad Maxcey (Danner’s Inc.), and Jamie Sylvester (Briggs & Veselka Co.).

The Captain’s Cup has sold out quickly every year. If you or your company are interested in participating in the 2017 tournament, please send an email to golf-info@txgulf.org to receive updates.
