It was a lovely day for golf as The Louisville Lion’s Club Annual Two Man/Woman Scramble was held this past Saturday at the Louisville Country Club.
It was a day of family and fun as teams competed in the 27-hole tournament. Everyone had a good time as door prizes were handed out and good food enjoyed as well. As children played in the pool, others were looking for a chance to take home a trophy and for some, cash.
With this being one of the Lion’s Clubs’ biggest fundraisers, it contributes to help the needy with Lasik eye surgeries, to children who need eyeglasses for school.
Other uses of the proceeds include community projects, support of the local library and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as providing funding to other areas of need.
There were 4 flights with trophies awarded for 1st and 2nd place and a $100 prize for closest to the hole on number 7.
Winners for the day were:
3rd Flight—2nd Place, Don Dickerson & Taylor Harris. 1st Place, Jody & Sheila Fulton.
2nd Flight—2nd Place, Ray & Joshua Reed. 1st Place, Ray Ingram & Tom Bush.
1st Flight—2nd Place, Jim & Buddy Butts. 1st Place, James Russell & Billy Bethany.
Championship Flight—2nd Place, Wade & B.J. Hailey. 1st Place—John Wright & Deacon Jones.
The closest to the hole on number 7 was E.L. Vowell, who got the ball within 19 inches from the hole.
