The Canyon Oaks Senior Men's Club enjoyed a good turnout for its individual stoke play 2023 Senior Open. There were enough players for the field to be divided into four flights, and sweeten the payout pot a little. Brian Sweeney took low gross in the first white tee flight with a great score 77, albeit he tied with Brian Endemano, also with a 77, for that honor, but Endemano was low net (71) and took the payout for that achievement. Randy Maday took second low net, also with a 71, after losing the card off to Endemano. Greg Miller finished in the third spot with a net score of 72. All the players were single digit handicaps in the first flight.
