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.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.
