Thursday, Sept. 8 was a scorcher for the Hospital Auxiliary’s twenty seventh annual scholarship golf tournament.

As temperatures hovered near the 100 degree mark, 19 teams participated in the captain’s choice tournament at the Camden Country Club.

 The winning team consisted of Terry Hicks, Fred Hatfield, Alan Ward and Cliff Brown. Second place honors went to Tyler Lofe, Josh Wilson, D.J. Creed, and Thomas Woolard. Third place went to Wes Dasher, Matthew Sheheen, Russ Cobb and Bernie Cobb.

Closest to pin awards went to Chris Cameron (hole 2), Gibson Tucker (hole 6), Thomas Woolard (hole 8), Jimmy Stokes (hole 12) and Curt Teal (hole 16).

 Longest drive in the fairway winners were Sandi Blanchard (ladies) and Jimmy Stokes (men).

The Auxiliary tournament is known for interesting play and stats. The best gross score was 16 strokes better than par, while the worst score was even par. Only three bogeys were recorded on the front nine, while nine bogeys occurred on the back nine.

 The front nine had 15 eagles and four double eagles. The back nine had only four eagles. 

The overall results of this tournament reinforce the back nine’s reputation as being more difficult than the front nine at Camden Country Club.

Peggy Gettys, Auxiliary vice president and tournament chairman, singled out members of the golf committee for special recognition.  

In addition to Gettys, the committee consisted of Auxiliary board members Mary Clark, Pat Godwin, Marguerite Glasgow, Mary Sargeant, Linda Branham, Sharon Noeltner, Bobba Starnes, and Connie Haynes. Additionally, Bobbi Rush, Vince Bacchetta and Debbi Appleton served as special assistants.

Proceeds from the Auxiliary golf tournament will be applied to scholarships for area students planning careers in the medical field.
