Annual Golf Outing a Success!
9th Annual PHS Golf Outing is a Resounding Success!
On Friday, May 31st, Palmyra High School held its 9th Annual Golf Outing at Hidden Valley Golf Course. 152 players participated in the event, which featured a 4-person scramble format. Proceeds from the tournament benefit: District OR1 Foundation for Knowledge, scholarships for graduating seniors, as well as the PHS Strength and Conditioning Program.
Returning to this year’s event was a $5000 putting challenge. Each player had the opportunity to win $5000, simply by making three consecutive putts. As well as having the opportunity to cash in on the putting challenge, golfers were also able to challenge for pin prizes on each of the 18 holes played – these prizes were generously sponsored by the tournament sponsors listed below.
Tournament Coordinator Tyler Maas’ thoughts on the tournament, “This year was the best year yet for the tournament! I would like to thank all the sponsors, all the golfers, and especially all the people that volunteered their help the day of the tournament. It was nice to see so many familiar faces, many teams have supported this event each of the 9 years. This year we exceeded capacity team-wise, which is a great problem to have. We look forward to having a great tournament for years to come.”
