The annual Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce Golf Scramble was held on Tuesday, October 5, 2017 at Shady Hollow Golf Course in Cub Run where a total of 14 teams competed for over $1000 in cash and prizes.
Chamber Director Rhonda Clemmons was very pleased with the turnout of the event.
"It's something we enjoy every year," she said. "We use the money raised to go back into the marketing and promotion of our local businesses. It's a great time and everyone enjoys the event. We want to thank J.C. Ramsey and Shady Hollow Golf Club, Rafferty's of Elizabethown, and Servpro for all their help at the event. We also appreciate all our hole sponsors that helped make the event possible."
The winning team took home a $500 cash prize and consisted of Greg Nugent, Terry Cornell, Dion Houchins, and Danny Hayes with a score of 18 under par. Second place went to Steve Patton, Steve Jecker, Larry Stewart, and Jacob Schakat with a 16 under par score. Third place winners were Barry Rich, Tommy Webb, Anthony Browning, and Tracy Meredith with a score of 15 under par.
There was also a $10,000 Hole-In-One challenge on hole #8, a par 3, sponsored by Curneal & Hignite Insurance, Bob Kleier agent, but no one was able to take home the jackpot.
The Edmonson Voice had a team but let's just say their approach was to have fun and not necessarily focus on winning. Or something like that.
