LEEDS – It was a busy day Sunday at Springbrook Golf Course. A large number of golfers participated in the 2006 Al’s Italian Open Tournament.

The day started with the dedication of the driving range improvements and Memorial Garden to long-time Golf Professional Al Biondi who passed away in November of 2006.

Although his presence is greatly missed, his wisdom and lessons will live forever.”
