11th Annual Golf Tournament Recap

11th Annual Golf Tournament Recap

The AMC Museum Foundation 11th Annual Golf Tournament was held on Friday, June 5, 2015. It was a huge success as our golfers turned out for an afternoon of golf and fun in great weather and a beautifully conditioned golf course. As our foundation’s largest fund-raising event, all the proceeds go to help us fulfill the mission of the AMC Museum as an aviation and aerospace, education, scientific, cultural, historical, and inspirational facility for the general public and the U.S. Air Force community.

The tournament results follow:

Winning Low Net team (54): Andrew Vitale, Mathew Cunningham, Nicholas Day, and Patrick Abel
Runner-up in the Low Net: Tony Soligo, Mike Wright, Chuck Miller, and Phil White
3rd Low Net: Joe Zingaro, Rich Derre, Steve Welde, and Mitch Berger

Low Gross winners (incredible score of 55!): Tony Procopio, George Deering, Bob Mellin, and Keith Caskey

A highlight of the day was on the 16th Hole where Col (Ret) George Chabbott again sponsored a $500 prize to the player getting their second shot closest to the par-5 hole. Larry Garey, who was definitely on his game, mastered a shot to 7’8″ to take home that prize.

We’d like to give a special thanks to our corporate sponsors:

Ameriprise (Ron Scheff)
Townsend Chevrolet (Jeff Townsend)
Marion Klein
George Chabbott

Finally, this event could not have occurred were it not for the Golf Tournament Committee and volunteers who put in many hours of preparation.

We’re already planning for next year’s 12th Annual AMC Museum Foundation Golf Tournament. Please plan on joining us for a day of fun in 2016. See you next year! Fore!
