Pro-Law-Am golf tourney beats the heat

Published 5:43 pm Friday, June 19, 2009

The blazing weather didn’t keep golfers away from the CenturyTel Pro-Law-Am tournament at Cambrian Ridge on Wednesday.

“We had 99 players, which is actually one more than the 98 we had last year,” said Mark Harold, an Alabama Probation and Parole Officer who helped organize the tournament. “It was a great turnout, but we’re always looking for more.”

One of the highlights of the day occurred before the tournament started when members of the Dale County Sheriff’s Office dropped golf balls over the practice course from a helicopter.

“We sold 152 golf balls for that,” Harold said.

Susan Sorrells was the winner, with her golf ball coming closest to the hole. Her prize was $500.

“Overall, it was a very successful tournament,” Harold said. “We don’t have any numbers yet on what the donation will be to the charity because it’ll be about a month before we have a final figure.”

Harold said there are many people who worked together to make the tournament possible.

“All of the participants enjoyed it — the food was excellent, and we want to thank Cambrian Ridge for all their hospitality,” he said. “We certainly want to thank CenturyTel and all the sponsors that contributed, and I want to commend Kathy Smyth with Safe Harbor for all her hard work and help.”
