This Year the Golf is Golden!

The Carnation Festival and Tannenhauf Golf Club turned 50 this year and co-chairs Barb Armitage and Leigh Mainwaring seized the opportunity to have fun and to raise much needed funds for two YWCA youth programs - Between Kids and Nutri-Kids. Barb and Leigh honored scramble founder, Judy Tolerton who was on hand to play in this year's tournament.

There were several new twists to the annual event including some new golf skill games (where all participants received a sleeve of balls), a roaming beverage cart, a change in the menu (although Trudy's delicious brownies returned) and men! Topping the fun list was the return of the Three Blind Mice Game, where blindfolded golfers are spun around and then attempt to sink a putt! Its as hard as it sounds even with the verbal assistance of a team member. Still this year's winner came within a foot of the hole.

Thanks to our sponsors, Tannenhauf, the golfers, local businesses, and the YWCA Board, members, and staff who provide the proximity prizes.
