WARSAW — Fortunately, the rain did not last long, and it ended up being a beautiful day as team members took turns swinging clubs for a good cause Monday, June 6, for the 30th Annual Beaman Home Golf Scramble at Rozella Ford Golf Club, Warsaw.
Overall, the event netted $12,500 to support the Beaman Home’s continued goal to provide essential services to domestic violence victims and their children. With 28 teams participating, the day was full of fun and friendly competition.
Medartis Team 1 took home first place in the scramble with a score of 55, which was 15 under par. Team members were Shane Hartle, Ginger Rhamey, Travis Christman and Ryan Schlotterback. The runner-up was Bartel Printing, with team members Murray Bartel, Mike LaLonde, Chris LaLonde and Nick Anglemeyer. They finished with a score of 57, which was 13 under par.
All teams had options to pay for mulligans and a creative way to further the advancement of their ball on a day full of crazy antics. Bowen Center sponsored a hole where golfers paid to advance a remote-control car to improve their tee-off position. At the end of the day, Bowen Center employees presented Beaman Home with $923 raised by their RC challenge.
Other contests the players participated in were the longest drive, longest putt and closest to the pin. Brady Wiley and Chris LaLonde won the longest drives. The longest putt winner was Mike Reed, and Joe Graham won the closest to the pin. All qualified players were also given a chance to win a 2022 CFMOTO CFORCE 800EX ATV sponsored by Kerlin Tractor & Motorsports for a hole in one on a specified hole.
