Golf tourney scores big for first responders
Last updated 9/20/2022 at Noon
Aspen Lakes Home-owner’s held their Annual Golf Tournament Sunday, September 11, in remembrance of 9/11 and hosted Closest-to-Pin and Longest Drive donation opportunities.
With a 12-noon shotgun start, both nine- and 18-hole flights were available for signups, resulting in 45 Aspen Lakes homeowners enjoying a day of fun, competitive play, tons of laughs, and cheers of encouragement. The round of players was congratulated at completion of play with a hosted dinner, prepared by the neighborhood Social Committee, and a rousing presentation of awards.
Barry Valder, Judy Valder, Ken DePriest, and Nancy DePriest earned the first-place award with a score of 44. Jim Sanger, Sharla Sanger, Ed Woods, and Mary Hannigan took second place. Stan Manley, Liz Manley, Brian Chugg, and Jane Chugg won third place.
Donations received for the Closest-to-Pin and Longest Drive opportunities were awarded to our local Cloverdale Fire and Rescue Association on behalf of remembered first responders.
Tournament founder Chuck Gibson presented a check in the amount of $650 to Alan Smoke, Cloverdale Fire Association President, in remembrance of all first responders, at the Aspen Lakes Homeowner’s Annual Dinner on September 15.
Next year’s annual golf tournament is slated for Sunday, September 10. With the successful growth of this event and number of participants, a “gross score” prize will be added for 2023 play.
