Second Place went to Florence Dental Clinic. Coldwell Banker-Coast Real Estate #3 placed third. The Band of Brothers came in last winning golf lessons from Florence Golf Links Pro, Nik Remer. The tournament used the Calloway Scoring Method.
There was a fierce battle in the putting contest with three individuals facing off in a “Putt-off” because they all sunk the 30’ putt in the competition. In the end, it was Justin Timm winning the $100 and the trophy. Kim Renteria’s name was drawn to attempt sinking a 60’ putt to win $5,000. Unfortunately, her putt narrowly missed the cup by a few inches. Nick Johnson won the men’s long drive. Jeff Earnshaw won the men’s KP on hole #11. Emma Timm was a double winner with the top drives in both the KP contest on hole #11 and the women’s long drive competition. In the Poker Run, “The Birdie’s OR Bust” winning $140 with a full house. Lofy Construction won the prize for “Best Dressed Team” all wearing Hawaiian theme shirts. Chrissy Davis and Ed Davis both won the straight drive competition. No one scored a “a hole-in-one” sponsored by Johnston Motors on hole #5 to win a new Ford Bronco. Everyone had fun at the signature Chipping Contest following the tournament with three players landing shots in the kiddie pools.
