Suburban League golf

Green boys golf coach Dan Gorley is a gracious winner.

His team won the Suburban League postseason golf tournament Wednesday afternoon at Good Park Golf Course by edging Revere 323-327. Revere was the preseason and regular-season champion and, as a result, claimed the overall Suburban League title.

''They had a great team,'' Gorley said of Revere.

Green was right up there with the Minutemen all season, and on Wednesday, the leaders for the Bulldogs were senior Charlie Miller (79), juniors Justin Grunstein (80) and Alex Hinkle (80), and senior Sean Myer (84).

''I was very happy with our guys,'' Gorley said. ''They have played well all year.''

And Gorley said the roaring noise emanating from a huge chipper, used to mangle and grind fallen branches from the recent storm, wasn't an issue.

''The course was in great shape,'' Gorley said. ''There may have been a few times when it took some time to find a ball because it was underneath some leaves or a branch or something, but it wasn't a problem at all. They did a nice job on the course.''

Larry Zimmerman, the course manager, appreciated Gorley's compliments. He said his regular crew of 12 workers was up for the challenge.

''They came in Monday morning at 7 a.m., and they went right at it,'' Zimmerman said. ''They got the fairways cleaned off and hauled away all the debris. Then we mowed all day Monday and rented a chipper for the debris and we're continuing the [chipper] process now.

''My crew did a heck of a job getting the course ready for not only the [Suburban League] tournament, but for everyone,'' Zimmerman said. ''They busted their tails.''
