Saturday, October 17th was a perfect day for golfing and 168 golfers enjoyed the day at PGA National Resort and Spa. The occasion was the Palm Beach Gardens Police Foundation’s 8th Annual Golf Tournament benefiting Police Explorers and Youth Programs. As golfers registered, the excitement was building and continued throughout the day and included breakfast, 18-holes of golf and a terrific luncheon and awards ceremony as well as tournament attire.
This year’s tournament exceeded expectations and was a day of records with more players and sponsors than ever before, and more additional donations through the raffles, silent auctions and various golf contests. While no one scored a hole-in-one and went home with a new Porsche offered by Presenting Sponsor Braman Motorcars, everyone had a great time trying.
Winning the tournament on the Champion course was the foursome of Rich Geist, Glenn Wright, Pride Grinn and Dave Keller. Over on the Palmer course Ray Paley, Linda Post, Brent Waugh and Buzz Holland took home the trophy.
The Foundation appreciates all the support from the players, sponsors and volunteers who participated as well as all the local businesses who contributed raffle items, auction items and sponsored hole signs throughout the two courses. “Thanks also to the PGA Resort and Spa for its support during and leading up to the tournament” said Foundation CEO Tom Murphy.”
