2014 Rotary Golf Tournament
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!
