On Oct. 26 history was made in Cumberland County. The first ever Junior Golf Championship of Cumberland County was held at Four Seasons Golf Course in Fairfield Glade. There were 13 participants with two different divisions. Eagle players were kids with tournament experience and Birdies were kids without tournament experience. 

Birdie division winners for third-fourth grade were: Chandler Shelton (45), first place; Wes Flynn (50), second place; Michael Methvin (57), third place; Jordan Burgess (61), fourth place; and Zoe Woody (63), fifth place.

Fifth- and sixth-grade winners in the Birdie Division were D.J. Shelton (46), first place; Megan Burgess (53), second place; and Anna Holt Shaw (58), third place.

Seventh- and eighth-grade winners in the Birdie Division were Paige Cox (50), first place; and Reed Shaw (51), second place.

Reed Cass won the eagle division fifth- and sixth-grade with a 40, while Logan Cass won the Eagle division seventh- and eighth-grade with a 41.

Reed Cass won all three closest to the hole.

Many people contributed to make this happen. They include Karen McMeekin, LPGA professional; Cumberland County Bank; Spirit Broadband; Dave Kirk Automotive; Peg Broadcasting; City of Crossville; Hughes Real Estate Services; Cass Photography and Gifts; Brown and Reeves Prudential Real Estate; Plateau Group, and Promotions Plus.

Volunteers were Julie Shanks, Janie Hollingsworth, Judy and Randy Barnwell, Tim and Tamara Pugh, and Charlotte Medley.

The goal of the tournament was to give the kids a positive golf tournament so they can continue to improve their golf game while living in “The Golf Capital of Tennessee.”
