Breezy, cool conditions greeted the players at this year's Memorial Golf Tournament. But, as the morning progressed, the weather had warmed up and it ended up being a beautiful day. The team of Tony Fawl, Doug Gayer, Jack Rader and John Rader won a score card playoff with the team of Jamie Piper, Alan Porter, Kelly Sorenson and Chad Alexander for first place. Dennis Shaw had the closet to the pin on number 15, Jack Rader had the longest putt for the men on number 9 and Donna Viola won the same prize for the women. A big thank you goes out to the hole sponsors, as well as those who played in the tournament. Our club was well represented and you can all be proud of helpingmake this a successful event and to raise more funds to help the youth in the community.
The team of Jamie Piper, Tony Fawl, John Hastert and Chuck Singleton represented our club in the 2016 Kansas Optimist State Golf tournament this year, and again brought home the Champion's Trophy. They won the Optimist Division by a large margin, and tied for first place in the Open Division.
As in the recent past, the outing was part of Annual Childhood Cancer Golf Benefit. Including this year, the event has raised over $125,000 for this worthy cause.
Here is a thank you note from Ruth Nelson to those who participated in this year's event.
