Golfers Have Some Fun in Elgin


"Attendance was not large, but the fun, enjoyment, socializing and golf competition was," said event co-chairman Ernie Boradnax.

The event, the New Hope Divot Invitational golf outing, was held recently at Rolling Knolls Country Club and was sponsored by Elgin's New Hope Baptist Church.

The golfers commented on the hospitality and special considerations extended to them by the Rolling Knolls owners and staff, from registration through the awards dinner.

"We, as sponsors, were very appreciative of everything, as this was our first time attempting (this) type of event," said Pastor Edward Grizzette of New Hope Church.

The 2004 Buick automobile, sponsored by McGrath Buick of Elgin, drew many favorable comments and stirred up a few daydreams of a "hole-in-one" on the par three, 17th hole.

In addition to providing the opportunity to win a car, they provided the golfers the opportunity to win large amounts of golf balls and a chance to travel.

The sponsors said they were pleased with the many positive remarks extended by all the golfers, especially the many prize winners. The longest drive contest was won by Elgin's Munson Anderson, and the longest putt contest was won by Elgin's Charles Bills.

Many lucky door-prize winners took home nice gifts provided by a variety of local supporters. The city of Elgin provided a watercolor painting of Elgin at dusk. Additionally, two golfers won special commemorative watches, honoring Elgin's 150th year birthday. Others won souvenir water bottles that were appreciated as the temperature climbed.
