Ron “Goose” Hunter donated numerous hours to the golf course this summer.
The Rock Port Golf and Country Club recently held a “bragging rights only” two-person scramble golf tournament in honor of Ron Hunter, commonly known as “Goose.”
Ron has selflessly donated numerous hours to the golf course this summer and has been instrumental in the course’s success as a result. While Ron spent time doing the majority of the mowing, the groundskeeper, Adam Laur, was able to focus on repairing and rebuilding the greens. This combined effort has presented a tremendous turn-around for the local greens.
To thank Ron for his support, Golfing for Goose was organized. All entry fees were donated to Ron to thank him for all of his time over the summer. The tournament brought 18 teams to the course, and presented Ron with $2,000.
Because the tournament was for bragging rights only, participants were given the opportunity to pay for hole prizes on each hole. For $5 each, golfers could vie for longest putt, longest drive, closest to the hole on drive, closest chip shot, closest second shot and others. The winners of each of those categories also donated their winnings to Ron.
