Perfect weather greeted the seven foursomes gathered at the Sugarbush Golf Course for the third annual Sugarbush Racing Club golf tournament on June 30. The tournament is one of many events organized by the club during the year. Following golf, members and guests enjoyed pizza and salad in Hogan’s Pub.
The tournament format was a nine hole, four person scramble. Lauri Landau, Jack Donnelly, Jula Fender and Suzanne Peterson were awarded the top prize for the lowest team score. Danielle Hampton and Jula garnered the longest drive awards and Mac Jackson was the closest to the pin on hole number eight.
An award not normally seen at golf tournaments was awarded to the foursome with the highest score. The foresome were Larry Bennett, Phil Waire, Danielle Hampton and Pat Apigian. Another unusual award for the best dressed golfers was won by Peter Koch and Lucy Andersen.
Following dinner, the club made its annual donation to VASS at Mt Ellen which was accepted by Maggie Burke, managing director of VASS. This year, the club donated $1522 in memory of John Wilson, Michael Barker and Heidi Albanese, who passed away during the past year.
