PCMGA holds Kare Bears benefit tourney

Howie Tiger

On Thursday, April 5 the PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association held a fundraising tournament with proceeds going to the Kare Bears organization. The event was so successful that the PCMGA presented a check for $2,000 to Teri Sellers, the President of Kare Bears.

A total of 54 four-man teams competed in this form-your-own team event which was played using all three nines at Tuscany Falls. The format was “Cha-Cha-Cha” where one best score counts on hole 1, then two best scores on hole 2, and then three best scores on hole 3, then repeats. There were three flights that played from the blue tees and three flights that played from the white tees. Prizes were awarded in each flight as well as “closest-to-the-pin” on all six par 3’s.

In addition to the competition awards, Chuck “Gus” Gustafson was the winner of the 50/50 drawing and 12 other lucky players won door prizes.
