Putt for the Cure miniature golf tournament a success

CROSSVILLE — Kids of all ages enjoyed a fun outing of miniature golf Saturday at the first Putt for the Cure event, presented by Dr. Calley Jo Elsea of Cloudland Dental, to benefit the Upper Cumberland affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Players teams up with sponsors and host Pirates Plateau Golf Adventure to raise funds to help area women get needed screening exams, support patients and survivors, educate the public and support national research initiatives.

Golfers competed in the putt putt tournament in four age categories. Taking first place in the 7 and under division was William Goodwin, who shot a 51; second place was Amber Petrovit with a 54; and third was Luke Smith with a 64.

In the 8 to 12 category, Kelsee Neely took first place with a 47, followed by Yelena Stammen with 55 and Jillian and Ryan Petrovit tied for third at 56. Kayla Lewis took first in the 13 to 18 division with a 49. Kobe Raymond was second with 53 and Gage Raymond was third with 54.

Scorecard playoffs were necessary in the adult division, with both Brian Henson and Sean Petrovit shooting a par 45. Henson took first place in the scorecard playoff, with Petrovit taking second. A scorecard playoff was also needed to determine third place, with Brian Conatser and Josh Stone tied at 53. Conatser went home with the prize.

After enjoying a round of golf, players were happy to try their luck at several carnival games and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.

The committee thanks the generous sponsors who made this tournament possible: Calley Jo Elsea, DMD, of Cloudland Dental; Crossville Heating and Cooling; Rocky Top 10 Cinema; Crossville Computer and Repair; Dave Kirk Automotive; Mountain Motors; Beef and Barrel Restaurant; AC Electric and Refrigeration; Mayberry's Complete Home Furnishings; Wise Glass Crafts; the Crossville Chronicle; and PEG Broadcasting.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
