More than 40 golfers participated in the Swing For the Arts Golf Tournament last Saturday sponsored by the Enterprise Schools Foundation and held at Alpine Meadows. An estimated $1,200 was raised to support the fine arts programs in the school district.
A fun time was had by all as golfers purchased $400 worth of string at $1 for each foot with the string used to move their ball an equivalent distance toward the pin without penalty, the string being cut for each use. Mulligans were also purchased where golfers were granted a second shot from the same spot for shots that went awry.
Participants paid $40 for the privilege of playing 18 holes of golf and being supplied with breakfast and lunch.
In the best ball tournament the four person team of Chuck Haines, Wayne Haines, Tom Payne and Mike Crawford earned low gross honors with a score of 47 strokes. The second place gross team with 48 strokes was the foursome of Tom Trullinger, J.D. Nobles, Cole Phinney and Darrin Chitwood.
Winning low net honors with a score of 26.25 strokes was the team of Paul Steinman, Larry Garoutte, Guy Hadden and Al Sweet. Second place net honors at 28.75 strokes went to Mark Green, Dick Clover, John Raines and Mike Wiedeman.
Possibly the biggest winner of the day was Les Bridges who won a Tim Norman created bronze door prize of a golfer valued at $500.
