It was Rick Wakefield’s lucky day at the 25th Annual Jean Coutu Golf Tournament. The event took place at the beautiful Royal Oaks Golf Club in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. Wakefield mentions that it was extremely windy that day. “It was the kind of gusts that made the flag bend in the wind,” he recalls. Undoubtedly, even the most experienced golfer would second guess their club choice in these conditions.
It’s a good day when you can golf in October in New York. What made it a fantastic day was James Lillis’ hole in one to win a two-year lease on a brand new Ford Escape!
The Kevin Millwood Celebrity Golf Tournament did not start out great for Henry Frey, but it ended with a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Despite a sunny sky and warm temperatures, Frey said he felt “under the weather” and almost did not play. He explains, “I forgot my clubs and had to turn around to go back home and get them.”
This past summer, the Redford Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing was hosted at the Golden Fox Golf Course in Northville, Michigan. A local Northville resident, 22-year-old Mitchell Bell, was fortunate enough to be invited to this event by his grandfather, Thomas Bell. Mitchell was “just excited to spend the day with my grandfather.” He likely never imagined just how special it would turn out to be.
Charity events are some our favorite tournaments to write about, especially when they have winners. In the case of David Grummett, the “Be a Donor Foundation” holds substantial significance for him. He explains, “my sister-in-law is going on her 33rd year with a kidney transplant.” With such a close family member being an organ recipient, Grummett has made a point to participate in the D’Angelo Golf Classic (which benefits the cause) for the past two years.
