GLENMORE: Annual ‘Now’ Tourney a success

RICHMOND — On Saturday morning, nine four-person teams took to the links on the challenging little par-three short course at Gibson Bay on a day for Eskimos rather than golfers.

After some wake-up coffee and donuts I gave a welcoming address to all the hearty folks who showed up for the third “Now” Tournament.

Jason Eberle, the head pro at Gibson Bay, then explained the format and rules of play. He also commended Glenmore Jones, tournament chair, and said that the game of golf had no better friend than Glenmore.  

The nine teams then headed for their respective tees and play was started.

There were three different divisions this year — the men’s, women’s and mixed foursomes.

Stepping into the winner’s circle after the nine holes of play for the women was the team of Carolyn Jones, Missy Smith, Pat Brandenburg and Verda Wylie with a score of 28. A double bogie on number nine didn’t help.

Ouch!

Second-place honors for the women went to Rita Smart, Jan Masters, Dottie Renfro and Mary Adams with a score of 30.

The men’s division was won by the team of Hubert Broaddus, Ricky Terrill, Chris Childers and Steve Beagle with a tournament-low score of 20 (-7). Second place went to Emmitt Igo, Marvin Whittamore, Randy Baker and Earl Phillips with a score of 25.  

The mixed foursome division winners were the team of Susan and Gary Barrow, David and Pam Russell with a score of 23.  Second place was Don Edwards, Greg West, Loren and Allison Hooker with a score of 24.

In the special events, there were nine closest to the pin winners. They were: No. 1 – Steve Beagle; No. 2 – Loren Hooker; No. 3 – Chris Strunk; No. 4 and No. 5 – Ricky Terrill (you da man!); No. 6 – Hubert Broaddus; No. 7 – Joe Blankenship; No. 8 – Bill Fultz and No. 9 – Emmitt Igo.

The annual Health Now and Grace Now Tournament was bigger and better this year than it ever has been. This year we had nine four person teams which surpassed the six teams we had last year.

We raised $1,330 (and five boxes of food for Grace Now) for these two worthy local organizations this year which exceeded the $950 raised in 2011.

Wow!

I wish I could list all the wonderful hole sponsors, golf courses, restaurants, banks, merchants and individuals that totaled 36 donors but I can’t. My heart-felt thanks goes out to each and everyone of you and may you prosper.

Last but not least, thanks to Jason Eberele and his Gibson Bay staff for setting everything in place and seeing that it went well.

Thanks to my wife, Carolyn, daughter and son-in-law, Greg and Mindy West and granddaughters Emily, Savannah, and Tori West and Emily’s friend Alycia Muse.  

Mahalo to all of you good people for a job well done!
