Golfers tee off in pink ‘for a cure’

The 12th annual “Rally For A Cure” golf tournament held at Vashon Island Golf & Country Club on Friday, Aug. 15, was a huge success, as a full field of 52 players showed up in the signature pink clothing to play and support a great cause.

After the final tally, more than $7,200 was raised to be sent to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Competition winners included:

Ned Carroll scoring 62 to finish as overall net of the field winner. Par on the 18-hole course is 71 for men and 72 for women.

Womens’ division winners were: Jo Goforth (65), Teresa Bourke (66) and Barbara Steen and Mona Hardy (tied at 68).

Mens’ division winners were: Cliff Eckman (65), Alan Mendel (66) and Tom Bishop, Tom Trigg and Neil Jungemann (tied at 68).

Other prize winners were:

Long Drive — Sonya Huntington and Dave Creighton

Straight Drive — Carol Edwards and Jerry Mathews

Closest to the Pin — Gigi Jack and Mike Maki

Sadly, nobody won $10,000 for a hole in one on number 5.

Patty Ulman was chair of the event.
