Third Annual Texas Invitational Classic is another record breaker
We, the golf
committee, are very
pleased to report
that the 3rd Annual
Golf Classic, by
almost any measure
was a huge success.
Just when it seemed
all the details had
been checked and double checked
the weather man began to forecast
rain on June 10th; thank the Good Lord
though, the little front they had
forecast to come through the area on
the morning of the 10th never
materialized; as a matter of fact, the
weather did change, it was cooler and
clear on Tuesday morning with not a
drop of rain!
All the work of putting the tournament
together paid off as every registered
team but one showed up with their
clubs and 205 golfers headed out to
the shot gun start just a few minutes
after 8:00. Play moved along at a nice
pace and we all gathered back at the
pavilion for a hamburger lunch, the
presentation of just over $3,500 worth of
door prizes, recognition of the longest
drives and closest to the pin winners
and of course presentations of the
tournament winners. Those teams, in a
very close finish were;
First Place, Intercontinental Terminals,
with a salty gross of 53
Second Place, Steel Masters LP (third
time participants) with a 55
Third Place with a score card playoff
56 was Community Bank of Texas,
anchored by Mr. Mike Duckett!
The support this tournament has
garnered by so many of the generous members of our community have
Special thanks to our 30
tournament volunteers who arrived
early and performed various duties
throughout the morning. It is also
notable that sixteen school teams
participated and showed their
support and recognition of the
value of this event and their
appreciation of our efforts to assist
them in the classrooms. A special
thanks is also due to Bob Ellis,
Randy Perry, David Terrell, Wayne
Adams and Jerry Krampen.
Marshall Kendrick as well as D. C.
and Sherry Trainer also played
significant roles in acquiring hole
sponsor signs and door prizes. And
of course, Cindy Parmer, thanks for
planning, implementation and
