Colonial Country Club wins 36th annual Vail International Pro-Am golf tournaments
The 36th annual Vail International Pro-Am saw 30 teams play at Frost Creek, Red Sky and County Club of the Rockies Sept. 18-20. Colonial Country Club out of Fort Worth, Texas tallied a 48-under par score over 54-holes to secure the team title and Carlos Sainz from Houston Oaks Country Club was the individual champion with an 11-under score.
Started in 1998 by CCR’s current golf professional emeritus Tom Apple and Pete Seibert, founder of Vail and former CCR club manager, the event has raised more than $500,000 for local charities, including First Tee of the Rocky Mountains, YouthPower365 and Can-Do Foundation according to a press release.
“This event has, since the beginning with Pete Seibert’s vision, established the Vail Valley as one of the top summer destinations for golf around the country,” Apple stated in the release.
