Twenty four golf teams gathered at Timber Lakes Golf Course on September 25 and helped to raise $19,125 for Bob’s scholarship fund. Some golfers were there to compete and some just for the fun, camaraderie, to remember Bob, and a “good cause”.
Bob’s family was present for the event including sister, Carol Harrison of North Carolina, brothers Roger Price of Hillsboro and Jerry and Keri Price of Washington; and nieces Crissi Harrison and Audra Harrison of North Carolina.
Cash payouts went to the first three places, and thirteenth. First place with a score of 55 went to Team Mitch Scheller, Dave Scheller, Andy Mayer and Chuck Satterlee. Second place, score 57, went to Team Bill Schuette, Mary Kirk, David Kellebrew, and Lyndsay Bearden. Third place, score 59 went to Team Jack Crissey, Casey Grossner, Dave Campbell, and Jay Winkleman. Thirteenth place, score 62, was awarded to Team Tim Denny, Ryan Billings, Ron Bandy, and Dennis Kellebrew.
Longest drive winner for men was Kyle Loucks and the longest drive winner for the ladies was Lyndsey Bearden. Closest to the pin winner for men was Dave Wargo and closest to the pin winner for women was Ann Clough. Senior longest drive winner was Larry Trent. Dave Grigsby of Hillsboro was the 50/50 winner receiving $370. The winner of the cash/gun raffle was Brad LeMarr of Brighton and he chose the gun.
$8,000 in scholarships were awarded last year in Hillsboro, North Greene, Carlinville, Southwestern, and Staunton, with a total of thirty-eight awarded in the past seven years. The scholarships are available to high school senior students in Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, and Montgomery counties.
