12th Annual Cougar Classic Golf Tournament
On Friday, May 25th, the eve of Memorial Day weekend, Steele Canyon Golf Club hosted the 12th Annual Cougar Classic. While the weather gave no indication that a holiday weekend was upon us, the tournament carried on without missing a beat. Traditional to the Cougar Classic, players were greeted at registration with hotdogs on the BBQ, prepared with love and perfection by committee members Neal Reynolds and Ben Cline. The golf course (home turf for the boy’s and girl’s golf teams) promised excellent course conditions and did not disappoint.
This year’s event garnered support from a wonderful slate of sponsors, donors and participants. Tournament gift bags included certificates for a swing evaluation from golfTec as well as a one-hour spa treatment from eLiveLife. Players were treated to a pre-round stretch tent on the driving range provided by Body Balance for Performance, as well as a complimentary video swing analysis during the round courtesy of UnderPar.com. The dinner and awards banquet recognized the 1st and 2nd place low teams and finished up with a unique addition to the awards provided by Polara Golf, who awarded each member of the last place team (names will be not be revealed to protect the innocent) with a dozen of their unique golf balls designed with “self-correcting technology”. With a headcount of 100 players, and a fantastic raffle and silent auction, the committee agrees that the 2012 Cougar Classic was a great success!
We extend thanks to everyone who helped raise nearly $7500 for both the Girls’ and Boys’ Golf Teams, and look forward to seeing everyone next year for the 13th Annual Cougar Classic.
Thank you to our Sponsors!
