"Swing Fore your Health" Golf Tournament a Success
The Cheyenne County Hospital held its annual “Swing Fore Your Health” golf tournament at Riverside Recreation on Friday, July 20. The weather was a little warm but still great for the 15 teams that participated.
Winners of the Championship Flight were Darrell Reed, Josh Reed, Pat Reed and Billie Reed. They won rounds of golf at Heritage Hills in McCook, NE. Second place was Matt Smull, Tom Smull, Jordan Smull and Chris Bracelin and won rounds of golf at Sugar Hills in Goodland.
In the First Flight first place team included Dustin Andrist, Wade Qiggle, Keaton Frewen and Dave Morow who won rounds of golf at Bayside in Brule, NE. Second place team was Trent Kinen, Nicole Kinen, Troy Hilt and Kelsey Andrist and won a round of golf at Sugar Hills in Goodland.
The hole prizes included at hole 2 closest to pin and Josh Reed won. Hole 3 was the long putt won by Matt Smull. Hole 4 was the Hole in One for the Hawaii trip but no one got a Hole in One. Hole 7 was closest to pin won by Danny Edwards. Hole 8 was long putt won by Lauren Reyelts and hole 9 long putt won by Danny Edwards.
A fun thing at hole number one golfers had the option to pay additional funds to use a small club to hit it to their tee-off spot.
For the golfers lunch, there was Subway sandwiches donated by Subway and then chips and cookies provided by the hospital. Appetizers were served after the tournament made by Caddy Shack.
The proceeds will be used to purchase exercise equipment for the Physical Therapy department at the hospital. This area is used by the physical therapy patients as well as community members who pay a minimal fee to come in and exercise.
