Dunn Rotary’s golf classic a success

Posted

The Dunn Rotary Club welcomed a great turnout and a beautiful day for its annual General William C. Lee Golf Classic at the Chicora Country Club Sept. 16.

“This was one of the most successful tournaments we’ve had since its inception,” said Rotarian Trent Carpenter.

This year, the 33rd tournament was held in special memory of the late Rotarian and longtime former Mayor Oscar Harris who died in January 2020. Harris was a faithful member of the club and a staunch supporter of his home community, befitting the honor of being memorialized in the club’s key fundraiser to support community projects.

“Rotarian Pat Godwin served as the presenting sponsor for the tournament and 84 individual hole sponsors all came together with the 23 foursome playing teams” to make the event a success, said Dunn Rotary Club President Robbie Misplay.

The tournament champions were established in two flights. Winning first place in the first flight was the foursome team of Bud Jennings, Kris Allen, Jerry Lewis and Derek Easter with a score of 52. Second place went to Chris Starling, Larry Baggett, Meghan Holbrooks and Dan Waters with a score of 54. Third place honors were earned by the team of Ben Dingus, William Peregoy, Kyle Turlington and Marc Phillips who also scored a 54.

Moving on to the second flight, all three top finishing teams scored 66 with place winners being selected by a scorecard playoff. The first place team was Jeremy Bass, Wade Pack, Nathan Arnn and Travis Sirois followed by the second place team of Byron Tyndall, Dennis Manuel, Clark White and Jeff Honeycutt. And rounding up the second flight champs was the foursome of Skip Smith, David Barnes, Bob Hedrick and Robert Wall. Closest to the pin honors went to Ian Stroud on hole No. 4, Larry Baggett on hole No. 7 and Marc Phillips on hole No. 11.

The players enjoyed a lunch of hamburgers and hot dogs prepared by Chef Joe Carr with chips and soda before the starting tee off.

“Our Rotary Club very much appreciated the hard work of Trent Carpenter and our Rotary Golf Tournament Committee along with the support of Pat Godwin, all the hole sponsors and the foursome teams to make this a most successful tournament and enable our club to continue to support a list of community charities,” Misplay said.

Chartered in 1924, the Dunn Rotary Club uses proceeds from the tournament to put its “service above self” motto into action: awarding scholarships to local graduating seniors, supporting mission projects at home and abroad, feeding the hungry, supporting education and fighting disease among other goals.
