Golf Tournament Sees Growth in Second Year

10 September 2020

The August 22 Beavers Backers Golf Tournament, having taken place at Park Hills Country Club, gave the local community an opportunity to lend its support to the Pratt Community College athletic department, and the town did not disappoint. 

A picture-perfect Saturday morning saw 15 teams and 27 hole sponsors assist in creating a tremendous atmosphere over the weekend. In its second year, the Beaver Backers Four-Person Scramble not only grew in size (15 teams compared to 12 in 2019) and sponsors (27 sponsors compared to 24 in 2019). Athletic director Tim Swartzendruber was extremely appreciative of all of those involved in making the event another rousing success. 

"We had a beautiful day and Park Hills was in great condition," said Swartzendruber. "A big thank you to all those who helped sponsor our event and also those who played. The proceeds from this tournament will go towards purchasing a flag pole for the new track-soccer complex along with assisting in the purchase of a sound system for that same venue. Also, a thank you to all our coaches and athletes who assisted with the tournament as well. We had a great day!"
