A long list of local businesses and individuals came together to support a tradition at Skyway Golf Course aimed at getting more young people interested in golf and staying that way.
On Thursday, July 18, dozens of kids ranging in age from six to 18 turned out for the annual Junior Golf Tournament, organized by local golf enthusiasts Pam and Dave Shaw.
The golfers were split into four age groups for both boys and girls. In addition to awarding the top finishers in each age group (see photo captions), putting and long drive competitions were held.
In the putting competition, winners were Scarlet Wood and Shogun Adams in the six- to nine-year-old division; Sarah Pace and Daxton Lish in the 10-11-year-old division; Presley Samuth and Jexton Brodrero in the 12-13-year-old division; and Morgan Rose and Preston Goring among the 14-to-18-year olds.
Long drive champions were Jacee Christensen and Shogan Adams (6-9 years); Jandee Hawkes and Cutler Christensen (10-11 years); Tylee Bennett and Jexton Bodrero (12-13 years); and Morgan Rose and Jarrett Giles (14-18 years).
