Brattleboro — With many COVID-19 safety measures in place, 29 teams participated in Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital’s 11th annual Tee It Up For Health golf tournament last weekend at Brattleboro Country Club. The weather was beautiful, the event went smoothly, and over $38,000 was raised, thanks to golfers and generous sponsors.
Net proceeds from the event benefited Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital’s Patient Care Fund.
Tournament results were as follows: First Place Team (Score of 59): People’s United Bank Team of John Conlon, JJ Conlon, Pat Mulcahy. Second Place Team (Score of 60): David Allbee, Marty Hill, Les Lynch, Bill Stephens. Leaderboard Air Cannon: Marty Hill (4’5”). Putting Contest: Nine golfers sank their putts (Kathy Ballantine, Tom Bedell, Coop Bills, Jim Bogdany, Scott Cleary, Dennis Degnon, Jerry Farmer, Gene Horton, and Bill Hoyt).
Because a putt-off was not possible, due to the staggered start times throughout the day, names were drawn from a hat. The first place winner was Kathy Ballantine, second was Coop Bills, and third was Dennis Degnon. Closest to the Pin Hole #No. 4 Men: Peter Schofield (11’8”). Closest to the Pin Hole No. 4 Women: Ally Barber (23’8”). Closest to the Pin No. 8 Men: Stephen Kapral (2’ 10”). Closest to the Pin No. 8 Women: no winner.
