Although winners of the High Country Rat Race held at Alpine Meadows Golf Course on Labor Day Golf weekend played a masterful golf game, they were not awarded a green blazer, but instead, good old hard earned cash ... greenbacks.
Of this magnanimous group of golfers ─ the crafty Cats, rueful Rats and chucky Cheeses ─ winners were awarded in Low Gross (before handicap) and Low Net (handicap added) down three places in each flight.
