The Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary held its 10th annual golf tournament on Aug. 29 at the Battlement Mesa Golf Course. The scramble golf tournament drew 88 players.

Winning the law officers trophy was a Garfield County Sheriff’s Office team comprised of Bill Middleton, Horace Smith, Smokey Torres and Brian Sutton.

The low net trophy went to Chris Bornholdt, Patrick Burwell, Joe Elliott and Rick Peterson.

The second and third low net chase finished in a tie. Using a scorecard tiebreaker, Aaron Munch and Mike Tyler and Colt Cornelius and his son, Cooper, prevailed.

That left the third low net trophies to Howdy Robertson and wife Diann and Matt Hall and his wife, Kelly. Kelly also won the trophy for women’s longest drive.

Brandon Bagwell won for men’s longest drive and the longest putt was sunk by Smith.

Trophies were given for closest-to-the-pin on all four par-3 holes and those winners were Bill Graham, Justin Duzyazk, Elliott and Jay Hoefling.

The tournament enables members of the Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary to function another year and to carry out the duties of being an extra pair of eyes and ears for the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office. Players came from as far away as St. George, Utah, and Canon City.

Sheriff Lou Vallario came to support this sole fundraising event. Vallario’s department provides personnel and training to members of the auxiliary.

Included in the areas of instruction are rules of the road, detection of suspicious activity including illegal drugs, directing traffic and crossing guard safety to protect local students.

A few other of the many public services provided by auxiliary members are issuance of dog and cat licenses, vacation house checks, vehicle identification number verifications.
