Every year, Oakland Hills Country Club puts on two Member-Member Golf Tournaments for the Spring and Fall seasons. This year for the Spring event, North Brothers Ford elected to sponsor a Hole in One Prize for a Ford F-150 for participating members. On June 18th, 2018, all interested parties came together at their country club at Oakland Hills. For some, it was just another day hitting the links, all except for Larry Denton. In fifty-four years of golfing, this may be his favorite round yet!
Plaza Ford sponsors an event every year known as The Coors/Plaza Ford 4-Man Scramble, and three participants have always made an appearance for the past 10 years: Sheldon Covey, Jim MacIssac, and Steward Cathart. This year at Seaview Country Club, the group of three shared an outing none of them will forget, especially Sheldon.
For the past five years, the Canyon West Golf Club has partnered with Ram Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep to host the Annual Mountaineer Classic in Weatherford, Texas, but this year’s outing was perhaps the most memorable one. It was a beautiful day for golf in mid-June, and the hot summer sun was beating down on all the golfers in attendance.
One warm Saturday, the Pawtucket Country Cub held it’s Annual Ozzie Koolian Member-Guest Golf Outing. Being their biggest outing of the year, they sought out a hole in one prize sponsorship from Flood Ford Lincoln, who put up a 2-year lease for a brand-new Lincoln MKZ on hole number 7.
