Several local businesses sponsored the event or contributed food, beverages and other items, including a Rolex watch donated by Gleim Jewelers, which was the hole-in-one prize.
The watch went unclaimed, however, as did two $5,000 prizes for the putting contest. State Farm Insurance/Jim Flynn and Al Ward sponsored the putting contest and the men’s and women’s longest drive contest. Brown Insurance Services of Los Altos and Intero Real Estate Services were the cart sponsors.
First-place honors in the scramble format went to the group sponsored by Casas Riley & Simonian LLC. A foursome hosted by Heritage Bank of Commerce took second place in the scramble format. Roxanne Norville and Mary Ann Norfleet captured top honors in the two-person best-ball category. Larry and Ruth Chu were second-place winners in the category. Fred Piontkowski won the closest-to the-pin contest, while longest-drive prizes went to Tom Rees and Vivian Lim.
The most-accurate-drive prize went to Jeff Brunello. Cindy Luedtke and John Fox putted unsuccessfully for the $5,000 putting contest prizes.
Proceeds from the annual fundraiser support the chamber’s primary core function of encouraging a strong local economy.
