Let It Drive!

Despite threatening weather and some gusty winds, the 2008 Seniors Golf Tournament was a fun and successful event held on July 23 at The Homestead Golf Course in Lakewood. Twenty-five people participated in the tournament, and for the first time in the tournament’s history, five women competed! Here were the winners:
Bob Fullerton, Jim Bayer, Don McMichael, Howard Erickson

Low gross:

1st – Don McMichael
2nd – Chuck Carpenter
3rd – Bruce Evans

Low net:

1st – Greg Taylor
2nd – Jack Clough
3rd – Bruce Schilkin

Special recognition goes to Kathleen Rimar who was the first woman to enter into the tournament. She played well and her gross score placed her seventh among all competitors. Had there been a ladies division, she would have won everything!
