13th Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament
Presented by Flagstick Golf Magazine
Wednesday, July 10 - 2:00 pm Shotgun
The 13th edition of the Metcalfe Charity Classic played out on July 10th, 2013 under perfectly sunny skies. An impending rain storm seemed to know enough not to show uo until all the participants were off the golf course.
120 golfers took to the well conditioned Metcalfe Golf Club in Metcalfe, Ontario playing a scramble format with smiling faces. From a donation of $25 per player, hole sponsorships, on-course raffles, contests, and a very popular silent auction table supplemented by generous sponsors, a total of $9500 was raised. All proceeds, as always, will go to the Osgoode Care Centre.
Judy Sully accepted the cheque on behalf of the Care Centre and mentioned that the funds would help their efforts to put a new roof on the building of the non-profit charitable corporation that provides long-term care to seniors. "We really appreciate this donation, it will go a long way to helping," Sully mentioned to the participants after they enjoyed a buffet dinner of roast beef and pasta.
Even though charity was the big winner on the day there were others who received prizes. The winning foursome, shooting 9 under par, was made up of Bob Maysenhoelder, Denis Sauve, Glenda Sullivan, and Jean Guy Hardy.
Second place went to the Pepsi foursome led by Pascal Chatrand.
The most honest team was won by Mary McVey, Donna Gordon, Karen, and Winnie Kerfoot.
Fraser & Wendy Wales, Clare O’Brien & Doris Morrow repeated as the Trivia winners. Morrow also picked up a prize for her longest putt on the 16th green.
Long drive honours went to Ryan Larose and Wanda Rowan while Closest to the pin prizes went to Wayne Bourbeau and Cathy Quinn.
Plans are already in the works for next year's 'Classic.'
