LUDLOW, Vt. – Carol Lighthall, executive director for Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce, summed up the 2018 annual Golf Tournament held Tuesday, Oct. 9. “It was a great success! The weather was perfect, the course at Okemo Valley Golf Club was spectacular, especially with the near-peak foliage as a scenic backdrop. And the players had lots of fun. I appreciate everyone’s participation, the support of our sponsors, and all of Julie Bowyer’s amazing work to pull the event together, thank you.”
The event’s entrance fee included 18 holes of golf with cart, range balls, contests, and prizes for top low gross and net scores. A Hole-in-One contest to win a car was sponsored by Benson’s Chevrolet, Inc. (no winner this time), and the day ended with a well-earned dinner buffet and cash bar at Willie Dunn’s Grille.
