Wasco County landfill won the low gross category and Floor Solutions took home the low net prize. Providence and Northwest Anesthesia won second place awards, while teams Hire Electric and Toole won third place awards.

Scott Haynes took home the closest-to-the-pin for the men and Dixie Schanno for the women. TJ Brake won the longest drive contest for men and Susan Lewis for the women. Tim Casey hit closest to the pizza box to win a Papa Murphy’s pizza each month for one year. No one drove home the hole-in-one prize of a new car from C. H. Urness Motor Company.

Twenty-six teams participated in this year’s tournament. In addition, the foundation raised over donations through a general raffle that included 12 fabulous prizes donated by community members and local businesses as well as a wine raffle that included seven cases of local, exceptional wine prizes.
