It was all fun on a beautiful night Nov. 4 for the 7th Annual Glowball Golf Tournament benefitting the Towne Lake Rotary Foundation. With the help of a great group of sponsors and more than 30 golfers, more than $7,000 was raised for the Foundation.
“We could not have done this without the tremendous support of our sponsors, golfers, those who donated raffle prizes and club members who worked hard to make this a successful event,” said Rotary Club of Towne Lake President Jim Klynman. “It was great to see everyone having a wonderful time for a great cause. A special thanks to Towne Lake Hills Golf Club and The Tavern at Towne Lake for hosting us every year.”
Woodstock resident Bob Sansone spent the Friday night playing with his son, Nicholas, and they both enjoyed their first-time night golf experience.
“It was such a cool experience,” Sansone said. “We had a blast and were happy to support such a great charity.”
First place winners were DD Lee, Dan Thrailkill, Vance Crook and Tom Klugman. Crook also won the putting contest. Second place winners were Bob Sansone, Nicholas Sansone, Stephen Clay and Hunter Clay. Third place winners were Donnie Henriques, George Beylouny, Bill Lilley and Shawn Johnson.
