Another successful fundraiser in the books
This summer, community support soared high for the Rainsville Chamber’s scholarship program. Through various sponsorships and other contributions, over $14,000 was raised for next year’s scholarship program. A big “thank you” goes out to the sponsors, golfers, volunteers, staff, food providers, and others who helped make our sixth annual Scholarship Golf Tournament the most fruitful fundraiser the Chamber has carried out since the 1990s.

Thanks to the golfers who competed
In a real nail biter, the Sparks brothers finished first in the top flight with a score of 53. That’s 19 under par for 18 holes.
RAINSVILLE–Saturday, August 19, 2017–Skillfully navigating a combination of narrow, long-rolling fairways, lush-but-slow putting surfaces, best-ball tournament best practices, and well-timed and complete usage of their deluxe mulligan tickets, six teams scored under 60 on the par 72 Rainsville golf course.
With only one stroke separating each of the first five places on the final leader board, the Sparks brothers, Team Horton and the team led by long-drive contest winner Jon Hicks finished first, second and third, respectively, in the top flight. Lamar Ellis’ team, Team Foodland, and Jordan Frazier’s team took home first, second and third place, respectively, in the second flight.
Four prizes were awarded in contests of skill. Mike Burt won a dozen new Titleist Pro V-1s for closest to the pin, which was held on hole number six, narrowly missing out on a $1,000 hole-in-one prize as his closest-to-the-pin winner stopped about 6.75 inches from the hole. As mentioned above, Jon Hicks won the long drive contest on hole number five. His prize, two dozen Callaway XDs. Gerry Wood won a dozen balls for making the longest putt, a contest held on hole number seven. Lamar Ellis won a bucket of Nike balls in the “closest-to-the-guinea-tree” contest.
“Thank you” golfers. We can’t thank you enough for coming out this year.
