The local Sons in Retirement Branch #19, based in the Concord/Clayton/Martinez area, just announced the winners of its 2016 golf championship series and its separate match play competition. The series is an annual handicap flighted golf tournament, with each player combining the two lowest net NCGA scores posted across three designated rounds. The championship event was played at Lone Tree Golf Course in Antioch; the match play program was a separate, multi-laddered, lowest net tournament, played on a variety of East Bay courses throughout the year. Jerry Burton, branch #19’s golf program director, crowned this year’s winners at a special SIR luncheon at Guadalajara Grill in Concord.  Each winner also received a special commemorative golf bag towel to proudly display. 


Sons in Retirement is an active men’s social group that hosts a variety of sport activities and social events throughout the year. For more details and membership info, go to
