Each year, golfers from the United States take on golfers from Europe in a competition known as the Ryder Cup: facing off in different formats of golf with the venue alternating courses. Meadowbrook Golf and Event Center golfers, in red, have faced off against Gilmer Country Club golfers for five years now in sort of a Ryder Cup challenge. And for a fifth straight year, Kilgore golfers have beaten Gilmer in their own Ryder Cup, in best ball, scramble, and individual play. The score: 36 1/2 to 19 1/2. Congratulations to Kilgore's golfers, and to Meadowbrook for keeping the trophy here in Kilgore.
