25 Foursomes Compete In Third Corporate Golf Classic
Four Chamber members met with GOACC staff back in Fall 2013 regarding the highly successful Corporate Challenge 5K. Ledgie DeRose, Jeff Crouch, Frank Higgins, and Scott Derwick all have participated (or their companies) in the run/walk but wanted to add another dimension to the corporate challenge. That day, the 1st GOACC Corporate GOLF Classic was developed!
The GOACC Corporate Golf Classic pits businesses against businesses in a heated competition to be deemed CORPORATE winners (and COMMUNITY winners!). The event also donates the 50/50 to a community cause/effort. This year, the golf classic was able to donate $262 to Interfaith Caregivers Adopt a Ride program. The event was happy to be able to support this program and to help with our community’s quality of life through this donation.
The golf winners from the CORPORATE GOLF CLASSIC 3 were for the Corporate Division, St. Bonaventure University (repeat champions) and for the Community Division, Fox Financial. Twenty-five foursomes competed up from 24 teams last year.
Other winners included: Closest to Pin – Bob Forness, Colleen Taggerty, Carolyn Shields and Tim Jones; Longest Drive – Janae Kosciol and Tim Richards. A putting contest was also held. Although no sinkers, Kate Langdon won $200 Shop Olean Gift Certificates with a putt of 4” (to the hole).
The committee appreciates the corporate and business support in the Third Classic. Although it was a competition to see who’s the best of the best, there was loads of camaraderie, networking and plain ole fun on the course! Hope to see you around the greens in 2017!
Corporate Division First Place went to (L-R) St. Bonaventure University with Seth Johnson, Matt Pappano, Sean McNamee, and Steve Mest.
Community Division First Place went to Fox Financial with Tim Jones, Frank Higgins, Knut Johnsen, and Scott Derwick.
