“A big thank you goes out to our Auxiliary officers and members, and those who came out to volunteer, including Ginger Gerhardstein, Sandy Didion and Sharon Reeves. I also want to give a special mention to the Crockett Family for all they did to help the event run so smoothly,” said Kate Herring, chairman of the 29th annual outing. “Everyone – all who volunteered to help – did a fantastic job. Also, a big thank you to the employees of The Bellevue Hospital for all the support they give this event each year. I am excited that next year’s event will be our 30th annual!”
The Physicians Foursome team shot a 9-under-par 62 to take Open Flight honors in the outing, winning on a scorecard playoff. Members of the winning team were Dr. Bill Bauer, Dr. Robert Reeves, Dr. Greg Boehm, and Toby Rodawalt.
The Northwest Ohio Medical Equipment team shot a 13-under-par 58 to win the Mixed Flight Division. Members of the team were Tom Hoff, Lori Hoff, and Brian Hutton.
The golfers started the day on July 24 by taking part in putting and chipping contests, and practicing at the driving range. The shotgun start then sent the golfers on their way for the field prizes and hole-in-one competitions.
