Dead Horse Lake Golf Course
Rolling tee times began at noon on Friday with each player receiving a swag bag full of awesome stuff. Eight teams were brave enough to turn in scorecards at the conclusion of the day and we had a tie at -14. Team Huskey (Huskey, Everett, Dulin, Blalock) and Team Miller (Miller, Peay, Bradley, Kayser) split the winnings and Keith Googe captured closest to the pin narrowly defeating Omar Tinko and Rob Halcomb’s name was penciled in for the longest drive.
