This year’s annual golf scramble was unique in several regards. This year marked the silver anniversary for the event, 25 years of great fellowship, golf and celebration of a shared mission. A record number of participants were also on hand with 116 golfers (29 teams) taking part in the event. For the third consecutive year, Spring Meadows Country Club played the role of host and delivered on expectations with top notch accommodations. Spring Meadows was a fitting host as the club was the home site of the first YMCA golf scramble some 25 years ago.
A special thanks goes out to King Par for their strong support of the event, donating over $7,000 in prizes including an embroidered YMCA / King Par golf shirt to each golfer. One of the many highlights during the dinner was the presentation of the Woody Skaff Sportsmanship Award to Jeff Snider for his support of the event and his strong commitment to the YMCA’s mission. Event winners were also announced and recognition was given to all who helped in making this year’s event a success. Thanks to all those who supported this wonderful event, the YMCA of Greater Flint raised $8,045 dollars for the Woody Skaff Scholarship Fund and the Partner with Youth Campaign!
We look to build on the success of this year’s event and promise to make the 26th Annual Golf Scramble one you will not want to miss out on. The 2012 event is planned for Monday, June 11 at Spring Meadows Country Club in Linden. Save the date and plan on attending and help support YMCA youth programs.
