Twenty-five teams saw action at the 10th Annual Golf FORE Life Tournament held on an overcast with few sprinkles kind-of-July day at Preston Country Club in Kingwood.
The tournament raised over $9,000 for West Virginians for Life Educational Trust Fund, a non-profit charity.
Platinum Sponsors were Doug and Dana Leech and Trinity Assembly of God, and Gold and Silver Sponsor was Wassick Novelty Co.
Several prizes were awarded during the fundraiser.
- Elliott Edwards (Closest to the Pin)
- Bobby Johnson (Longest Putt)
- Gary DuBois (Longest Drive)
For their skills, Edwards won a discounted round of golf for four at Stonewall Resort in Roanoke.
Johnson won a round of golf for four at Alpine Lake Resort and the DuBois award was a round of golf for four at the Preston Country Club.
The winner of the Putting Contest prior to the scheduled tee time was Joel Lewis, who received a Lowe’s $100 gift card.
Each person on the first-place team, Pound Town City Council, won a $100 Visa gift card. The foursome’s 59 was 13 under par. Team members were Jim Hall, Alex Louk, Zack Woleen and Will Stone.
The second-place team scored a 62 and each person on the team won $75 worth of merchandise from the Preston Country Club Pro Shop. Teammates were Cleve and Andrew Bowie, Brian Bailey and Patrick Plivelich.
Two teams scored a 65, but the tiebreaker on hole 16 gave third place to Ray and Cody Thompson, Nick Robertson and Wes Barrickman.
Their prize was $50 worth of merchandise each from the Preston Country Club Pro Shop.
Golfers are invited to play in the 11th Annual Golf FORE Life at this same course July 8, 2023.
