24th Annual Golf Tournament a Success

| June 13, 2017

CCOCGolfTourn24-WhiteAfter months of planning and cooperation from the weather department, our annual golf tournament was an unqualified success on Monday, June 5th. Registration and box lunches preceded the shotgun start at noon. Fourteen foursomes enjoyed 18 holes of golf at the Simsbury Farms Golf Course, one of the prettiest and best maintained public golf courses in CT. The round was followed by a hearty buffet dinner featuring Carolina pulled pork, ribs and salmon prepared and served by Attilio’s staff.

Despite three opportunities to win hole-in-one prizes, not one golfer was able to sink their ball in any of the three Par 3 prize holes. Thank you to our Hole-in-One sponsors for offering the following prizes: Northwest Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for the 2017 Jeep Wrangler 4×4 Sport on hole 9, Benidorm Bikes for the TREK FX3 bicycle on hole 4, and Tournament Pros for $5000 prize on hole 16.

IMG_3113 We had six PLATINUM sponsors this year: A.R. Godbout & Company, Collinsville Savings Society, Larsen ACE Hardware, Simsbury Bank, ShopRite of Canton, and The Shoppes at Farmington Valley. Our three GOLD sponsors were Northwest Community Bank, Seiger Gfeller Laurie Attorneys at Law, and Specialized Data Systems. BRONZE sponsors were Edward Jones of Avon, Gary J. Hyde CPA, Miller Properties of Canton, and Union Savings Bank. The Dowd Insurance Agency and Baker Newman Noyes sponsored the dinner. Twenty-eight companies sponsored tee signs on the course.

Many local businesses and area golf courses generously donated a variety raffle prizes including a one week vacation resort stay in Florida, several foursomes of golf, ski lift passes, Coach handbags, hanging flower baskets, ice cream, theatre tickets, Yankee and Red Sox area rugs, spa treatments’ a large screen HDTV, and many others.

The second low net score was a 56 won by the team of O’Mara, Lockwood, Lorrado, and Apinis from The Shoppes at Farmington Valley. The low gross score of 61 was had by the team of LeConche, Worth, Sapere, and Miano. The closest to the pin was won by Guy Miano. The longest drives were won by Brian Coates and Linda Hadley.

Our annual tournament would not be possible without the support of the tournament committee IMG_3116members and the 25 member volunteers who seek out raffle prizes, sell tee signs and sponsorships, work the registration tables, serve as witnesses at the hole-in-one holes, run the raffle, and perform whatever tasks are needed.
