Last year’s men’s champion team of Hagan Andersen, David Apigian, Michael Apigian and Manny Apigian repeated again this year, matching last year’s score of 59. They were followed by the 61 of Steve Butcher, Rob Schonder, Phil Truckle and Sheldon Foley. In the women’s mixed team event, Carol McGowan, Paul McGowan, Kelsey McGowan and Chuck Black, with a 63, defeated by one stroke the team of Julie Murray, Don Murray, Kim Whitworth and Whit Whitworth.
The closest to the pin contests were won by Carol McGowan and Whit Whitworth. Danielle Hampton and Pete Kelly took home the longest drive prizes.
Following the tournament, over $2,900 in raffle prizes was distributed. The club thanked the many businesses and individuals who donated products and services which made the raffle possible.
