Greer Memorial Hospital Greer Chamber Annual Golf Tournament a Success!

November 18, 2009

(GREER, SC) The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce had the perfect weather for a golf tournament on Monday November 16th, and the golfers were pretty good too. Twenty-seven teams participated in the 19th Annual Golf Tournament. The event was held at the Thornblade Club and many different members of the Greer Chamber were on hand to participate.

The day included lunch, dinner, prizes, a buffet dinner, networking, laughs, and even some golf. The captain’s choice style tournament was won by the Tuck & Howell team which shot a 55. The team included Mike Howell, Mike Godfrey, Justin Howell, and Daniel Phail. The second and third place teams both shot a 57 with a USGA tiebreaking system used to break the tie. Second place went to the Greer State Bank team which included Bill Harrill, Bill Hughes, Hendley Olmart, and Bruce Redmon. Third place went to a Greer Memorial Hospital team featuring Burton Johnson, Franklin Sease, Keith Lonergan, and Kyle Cassas.

Prizes were also given for four closest to the pins, two long drive holes, and a putting contest. Special thanks to all those that donated prizes: The Greenville Drive, Dunlop Sports, Carolina Power, Adidas, Academy Sports and Outdoors, Nimlok-Greenville, and BMW.

Closest to the pin winners included T.L. Baldree, Mike Godfrey, Jeff Smith, and Bill Harrill.  Long drive winners were Bradley Snow and Justin Howell.

Thanks again to our sponsors, volunteers, and all of our participants in the tournament. We are looking forward to next year!
