Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado
The Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary held its 12th annual scramble golf tournament at Battlement Mesa Golf Club on Sunday, Aug. 19.
There were 19 foursomes, who got under way with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. After all of the players had finished, they were treated to a barbecue lunch furnished by Alain Senac.
The law officer’s trophy was won by the Sheriff’s Auxiliary team consisting of Bob Campbell, Joe Cason, John Keller and Gary Leonard.
This is a revolving trophy and it was won by the Parachute Police Department last year.
Teams competing for the trophy were the Parachute Police Department, Silt Police Department, two teams from the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office and the Sheriff’s Auxiliary.
Trophies were given for low net, won by Jamey Calkins, Gordon Elliott, Wayne Morris and Mike Stiers. Second low net was won by Bob Dills, Shilo Holbrook, Mike and JoAnne Silk.
The Sheriff’s Auxiliary also won the trophy for third low net. Trophies were given for closest-to-the-pin on all par-3s and for longest drive for both men and women.
Berthod Motors of Glenwood Springs would have given a new Buick LaCrosse to the first person to get a hole-in-one on the 13th hole, but there were no takers.
This event is held every year in the latter part of August, so be on the lookout for it next year.
“The Auxiliary wants to thank all of the sponsors that made it possible for them to hold another successful fundraiser,” said Campbell, commander of the Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary. “The funds from this tournament will allow the Auxiliary to continue their service to Garfield County and Battlement Mesa for another year.”
