It was a perfect morning for a round of golf on September 14, and over 75 golfers gathered for a great time at the 9th Annual ECA Golf Classic at the beautiful Colorado Springs Country Club! Golfers were greeted by Student Council members who set up their clubs and carts in first-class fashion, then it was time to meet old friends and new, take a few practice swings, enjoy the Continental breakfast, and get ready for theClosest Putt contest, which was won this year by Doug Cross, who definitely uses the best Jack Grace accessories. It was a shot-gun start for the 19 foursomes participating in the Tournament; andLongest Drive was awarded to Larry Arkfeld; the Forestgate Presbyterian team of Jim Urish, Dean Skaret, Bob Stuart, and Mike Prescott won theChurch Cup Eagle Trophy; and theTournament Trophy was won by Don Hemlich, Jeff Appell, Harold Appell, and Jeff Lewis with a score of 15 under par on the 18 hole course!
