A large field participated in the annual Trent Miner Parent/Child Tournament at the Perry Golf and Country Club Sunday.
A total of 17 two-person teams played in the 13-under division nine-hole portion of the event, with 45 twosomes competing in the 18-hole 14-over division, which teed off at noon.
A silent auction held during the festivities raised $1,865, with additional monies from entry fees and donations allowing the Miner family to make considerable donations to the three charities supported by the event: The Trent Miner Scholarship Fund at Perry High School, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and The Caringbridge.
Volunteers Kathy and Dar Hoskinson, Eilenn and Barry Halling, Cindy and Kristin Sohn, Marjean Gries, Pat Mundy, Shirley Keenan and Denise and Butch Niebuhr helped organize and operate the tourney, with numerous local businesses helping to sponsor the event with donations.
Both the 13-under and 14-over tourneys used an alternate shot format, with a cardback to a handicap hole settling all ties.
Kendall and Luke Rathje won the 13-under division with a 37, with Bob and Kolby Gilroy second with a 37 while Terry and Connor Nielsen placed third with a 38.
Molly Lutmer had both the longest putt and longest drive for a girl, with Kolby Gilroy sinking the longest putt for a boy while Luke Rathje had the boys longest drive.
First Flight winners in the 14-over tourney were Josh and Dave Hansen with a 71. Jim and Trish Dorman were second with a 76 while Walter Langley and Zach Mundy were third with a 76.
Joe Connors and Brock Fox shot an 84 to win the Second Flight, with Kurt and Sydney Klise carding an 84 and Greg Tarr and Trevor Bird an 85.
A series of 93’s topped the Third Flight. Clay and Meredith Olson claimed the top spot, with Jill and Jack Brosnahan second and Jim and Molly Lutmer third.
Kelly Gates had the longest women’s putt and Shelby Townsend the longest women’s drive, with Dennis Meinecke draining the men’s longest putt while Eric Miller produced the men’s longest drive.
