Houston Academy wins annual Raider-Eagle Golf Tournament


It may be Master’s week up the road in Augusta, Georgia but, one of Alabama’s top high school golf tournaments is taking place at the Dothan Country Club.

The fourth-annual, Raider-Eagle tournament drew a record 16 high school teams from as far away as Huntsville and Mobile. The event co-sponsored Providence Christian and Houston Academy.

The inaugural event drew only six teams whereas last year, it went up to ten. Now 16 teams with five members each have come from across Alabama.

Following the final round, the top high schools were Houston academy takes first, followed by the St. Paul Saints out of Mobile, and Auburn High finished out
the top three.

Last year’s Future Masters champion, Hal Dove of Houston Academy led the field with a score of 66, with last year’s Future Masters runner-up, Thomas Ponder of Providence Christian finishing with a respectable 71. They will face each other once again in the 70th annual Future Masters this June.
