The first place gross winning team consisted of Lucas Bennett, Kyle Coleman, Todd Coleman and John Garrett.
The first-place net winning team, sponsored by Oliver Oaks and Vines, consisted of Palatka High School students Morgan Davis, Lexie Lee, Lauren Mathews and Julie Wilhite.
Spanky Aaron won the putting contest and an Orion charcoal cooker donated by Hagan Ace Hardware of East Palatka.
Winning “closest to pin” were players Will Papoosha (#3), Greg Bacon (#6), Henry Robards (#12), Spanky Aaron (#14) and Miles Anderson (#16). Jerome Wilkerson won the longest drive on hole number 9.
Thanks to the participants, hole sponsors and sponsors Jack Wilson Chevrolet-Buick-GMC, Oliver Oaks & Vines, and Dr. Anand M.
