Ties were broken by comparing scores on randomly selected holes on the scorecards. Engraved trophies were awarded to the top two teams in each flight, and the individuals on those teams received a sleeve of Titleist Pro V-1 golf balls, provided by the Tarkio Rotary Club, for their participation.
Hole prizes were awarded to various participants following the announcement of the tournament results. Hole prizes and their winners included Hadley Barnett, longest drive on hole number 2; Brett Barber, closest to the pin on hole number 6; Bentley Brown, closest to the pin in two shots on hole number 7; Steve Hoffrogge, longest putt on hole number 1; and Marvetta Volker, longest putt on hole number 9. Gift certificates donated by or purchased from local restaurants by the Tarkio Rotary Club were won by various participants in a random drawing. These included Pizza Hut, Mule Barn Café, Subway, all of Tarkio, the Dairy Diner in Fairfax, Missouri, Trail’s End in Rock Port, Missouri, and The Lyceum Restaurant in Brownville, Nebraska. Bussard Insurance also donated a golf umbrella. Unfortunately, no one won the $8,000 hole-in-one contest on hole number 8.
The Tarkio Rotary Club appreciates all who generously donated awards, prizes, sponsorships or their time to participate in this year’s tournament. The proceeds from the tournament will be used to support area youth scholarships, activities and community projects this year.
