A little rain couldn’t dampen spirits at the Halls Crossroads Women’s League Golf Tournament, held Aug. 20 at Beaver Brook Country Club. The tournament is the second such event for the Women’s League, and it helps fund their community service efforts like litter clean-ups, a clothes closet for those in need, scholarships and more.

During her opening speech, Women’s League president Susan Smith mentioned even more projects, including a Christmas tree at Clayton Park.

Twenty teams hit the course and competed in various contests, including a hole-in-one shot for a brand new car from Ray Varner Ford. There were also cash prizes, gift baskets and a recliner.

No one sank the hole-in-one, but David Tiller won the putting contest. Longest drive to hole 11 went to Sam Whaley and Natli Sharp. Johnny Schneider, Ebb Sharpe, Randall Hodge and Chris Brogan won prizes for closets to holes two, four, seven and 10.

Overall team winners for Flight One were Olin Rutherford, Danny Gaylor, Cameron Yeary and Dale Rutherford in first place; Ralph Stapleton, Joe Atkins, Glenn Pettit and Bill Love in second place; and John Fugate, Rodney Lane, Brad LeCoultre and Brad Dye in third place.

Overall team winners for Flight Two were Ebb Sharpe, Ron Rector, Chris Rector and Doyle Whitaker in first place; H. A. Loy, Paul Williams, Sam Whaley and Alan Price in second place; and Scott Kiser, Johan van Tilburg, Mike Girard and Greg Fritz in third place.

The Women’s League offered congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the sponsors and players who showed their support of the Halls community.
