CORE 2022 Golf Tournament Is The Most Exciting Ever!
What’s the greatest golf tournament ever played? Maybe the ‘63 U.S. Open, where upstart Nicklaus defeated living legend Palmer? Or, what about the 1997 Masters, when Tiger Woods became the youngest champion ever?
These are all sincerely good guesses but, it turns out, they’re all sincerely wrong. It so happens that the best golf tournament happened on May 12th, at Thousand Hills Golf Course right here in Branson!
We of course are talking about CORE’s 2022 Golf Tournament.
We have every reason to be positively beaming over this event. A big shout-out goes to our presenter Ozarks DynaCom (and all of its many, fine radio stations) for getting the word out about this tournament. Eighty (80) players participated! We couldn’t have done this without Ozarks DynaCom and their team of marketing professionals. They made all the difference!
As for the venue, Thousand Hills is among Missouri’s finest golf courses. It is an executive course with majestic vistas, wooded trails, lakes and streams, and golf-friendly critters. Kyler Patterson is the new Head Pro/Pro Shop manager out there. He met with CORE staff before the event and then proceeded to organize a first-class tournament. Everybody at Thousand Hills was so helpful, and we are very thankful for their efforts!
Golfers checking in at the clubhouse each received an awesome lunch bag, provided by none other than Panera Bread. We especially appreciated these lunches, because Panera Bread makes some of the tastiest sandwiches in town. You really can burn up energy hitting that little golf ball around, and Panera made sure that nobody went hungry!
Along with lunch, each player also received a goodie bag containing, among other things, magnificent CORE golf balls, free tickets to our dinner and auction taking place later in the day, and “bonus bucks” to apply toward any auction purchase. We were altogether pleased to see so many of our golfers and their families at our dinner and auction!
The event itself went smoothly. While golfers checked in, our Second Mile volunteers drove their golf carts to strategic positions all over the course. Four (4) holes carried special hole-in-one prizes – the coolest prizes being a Tracker bass boats from Bass Pro Shops (which kindly brought one over for the event!) While we didn’t have a hole-in-one this year, one team came oh so very close.
Even better, we had tournament winners! There were two flights, with each having three winning teams as determined by Golf Pro Patterson. These teams received cash prizes from $400 all the way up to $1,000! There were also golf product prizes for three contests: longest drive, closest to the tee, and longest putt. Not to be left out, even the lowest-scoring team received Thousand Hills gift certificates so they can get more practice in before next year’s tournament!
CORE is so very thankful to our generous sponsors who made the CORE 2022 Golf Tournament the most successful ever. They are:
