The California Area Chamber of Commerce hosted its ninth annual golf tournament Wednesday, June 12, at the California Country Club, where a total of 16 teams of three participated in the 18-hole event.
In first place was the team of Brandon Garber, Shayne Healea and Hayden Eichelberger with 61. Second place went to the team of Ken Parrett, Mike Kelley and Noah Kelley with 63. There was a 3-way tie for third place with 68 each; the team of Debbie Ferguson, Mitch Ferguson and Andrew Kiesling; the team of Ron Ash, Robb Hartman and Darren Goans; and the team of Sheila Bolin, Gary Baker and Daniel Williams.
The team that received the "Last Place Team Award" with 77, consisted of Mike Hight, Bob Staton and Debbie Staton.
Donnie McGuire won the Closest to Pin Contest, and Robb Hartman won the Longest Drive Contest.
A putting contest was also held, which was won by the following: first place, Noah Kelley; second place, Rodney Henley; and third place, Blake Howard.
"This year's tournament had the highest participation thus far, with 48 players," Event Chairman Corry Field said. "We also had a record number of hole sponsors at 35. We would like to thank everyone for participating. We had 20 or more door prizes donated from businesses. The list of those who contributed is long and we are so thankful. This was a huge success. I anticipate we raised close to $3000, which will fund the many projects the Chamber of Commerce does for the community."
Field added, "I'd also like to thank Shelly Hampton, Brad Baer and Dwight Sanders, who were on the planning committe for this year's event. We also had many volunteers, probably eight to 10 who helped throughout the day of the tournament. I just can't stress enough how thankful we are to everyone who participated, whether by volunteering, donating or golfing."
Shelly Hampton said, "We had an awesome turnout and a ton of sponsors. Without them, this wouldn't be near the success it has been. Also, we had so many from the school and the chamber volunteer their time to help. We can't thank the community enough for the support."
