2014 Ro­tary Golf Tour­na­ment

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Su­san Bar­ber

The Span­ish Fork Cham­ber and Ro­tary Golf Tour­na­ment for 2014 was a huge suc­cess this year. Be­fore this year the tour­na­ment was al­ways held in con­junc­tion with the Span­ish Fork Pro Am tour­na­ment. Last year the golfers ended up play­ing in the wet snow wear­ing boots and ski parkas in­stead of their classy golf shirts and sun­glasses! This year the Span­ish Fork Cham­ber of Com­merce and the Span­ish Fork Ro­tary moved the tour­na­ment ahead two weeks and en­joyed won­der­ful weather. We missed the pro­fes­sional golfers but had a good share of ex­cel­lent, soon-to-be pros!

The short num­ber four hole was spon­sored by Denny Mein­holdt Chevero­let and promised a Camero as the prize for a hole in one. Ev­ery­one was so ex­cited. Even Ro­tar­ian Rich Har­ris who had to babysit the hole for the en­tire tour­na­ment so he could be the wit­ness. No one is sure how he got this honor.

The golfers en­joyed a light break­fast and great swag bags be­fore the tour­na­ment be­gan, an op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire mul­li­gans dur­ing play and a won­der­ful lunch at the cul­mi­na­tion. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Mike McKell, es­pe­cially ap­pre­ci­ated the Mul­li­gans, and Ken Swen­son and Mike Stone were grate­ful for the cold drinks the girls brought around!

Be­fore the game be­gan there was a putting con­test as well as a long­est drive com­pe­ti­tion.

Sev­eral mer­chants set up booths of­fer­ing treats and pro­mo­tional in­for­ma­tion. At the end of the com­pe­ti­tion Maceys pro­vided ev­ery­one with a great lunch while prizes were awarded. In the fa­mous words of the Span­ish Fork Press “A good time was had by all!”

The golf tour­na­ment in the Spring, as well as the silent auc­tion held in Septem­ber cul­mi­nate in a huge schol­ar­ship pre­sen­ta­tion where lo­cal stu­dents are awarded $1,000 scholarships each. This year we raised enough funds for twenty-seven scholarships. WHAT A GREAT PROJECT!
