Large field of golfers compete in Southwest Council Golf Tourney

A record number of golfers competed in the NEFAR Southwest Council’s Annual Golf Tournament at Eagle Landing Golf Club Oct. 14. In all 93 golfers hit the links on the beautiful sunny day in Oakleaf. Thirty-six of NEFAR’s business affiliate members strongly supported the event with 22-hole sponsors joining the Southwest Council’s 14 annual sponsors.

Placing first in the tournament by posting a 49 was the foursome of Charles Wood, Hunter Reed, Rob Fisher and Ella Woods. Second place with a score of 50 was Randy Galloway, Mike DiClemente, Mark Rosener, and Chris Chemi. Eddie Kellar, Drew Kelley, Jeff Peeples and Garry Watson scored 51 for third place.

Winning prizes for their performance on certain holes were Cliff Baker, Ryan Powell, Judy Morris-Dobson, Trevor Eatmon, and Joyce Roberts. Baker won the prize for closest to the pin on Hole 13. Powell had the longest drive on Hole 9 and Eatmon won the putting green award. In women’s play, Morris-Dobson, had the longest drive on Hole 11 and Roberts was recognized as the lady golfer closest to the pin.

Unfortunately, no one nailed a hole-in-one on Hole 6, because if they had they would have driven away in a Chevy Blazer courtesy of Duval Chevrolet in Starke, Fla.

A fine taco luncheon was served at the club after the tournament was finished. Raffle winners were selected with several winning beautiful gift baskets and other prizes.
