Tournament took place at Country Hills Golf Course and raised funds to support the Kidney Education Outreach Program.
Saturday, June 12th was a perfect day for the third Annual KEOP Golf Tournament. Jay Zimmerman and Tommy Arthur, tournament co-hosts, awarded the top 3 teams in the captains’ choice event. The first place team finished at 14 under, two teams tied for second at 11 under and scores for the first five holes were reviewed before Team Mickey, donning their green Mickey Mouse golf shirts, took second place by a single stroke and the Tommy Arthur team took third place.
Country Hills Golf Course in Gibsonville, NC, includes a number of water hazards and it was noted that the resident geese found frequent cause to remain on terra firma most of the day! Tra Snellings of Medical Management Incorporated, sidelined with a broken wrist, delivered much needed water, soda and snacks to the sixty golfers during play and Keri Arthur served as official photographer for the event.
The Bob King KIA Dealership of Winston-Salem donated a 2010 KIA SUV as the prize for anyone achieving a hole-in-one on the 9th hole. No one scored a hole-in-one, but Suzie Hosman and Donna Harward, serving as the official gallery (monitors) on the 9th hole, witnessed several “close, but no cigar” attempts that generated much excitement.
Top finishers were recognized during a post-tournament lunch at the Country Hills club house and all participants were entered for a drawing of great prizes including gift certificates for golf equipment, free golf rounds and spa gift certificates.
Bucky Sharp won longest drive and Will Britt won closest to the hole among the men. Taylor Trent won both longest drive and closest to the hole among the ladies.
The third annual UNCKC Golf Tournament, sponsored by Jay Zimmerman and Tommy Arthur, raised just over $3,000 to support the Kidney Education Outreach Program’s targeted awareness and free screening programs!
