10/19/12 This year Starke County Chamber of Commerce offered teams the opportunity to golf for a 3 Tournament Trophy.  Traditionally, Starke County has had 3 Golf Outings with The Chamber, Stark United and Junior Achievement.  The Chamber Golf Committee wanted to promote teams golfing in each of the outings and offered a trophy for the team that had the best total aggregate from the three outings.  First National Bank of Monterey had the lowest score with a total of 170 – no handicap included.

The first golf outing was held by Starke United at the Bass Lake Golf Course in July.  August was the second outing held at Chesapeake Run Golf Course in North Judson for Jr. Achievement and the Chamber’s outing was held at Hamlet Golf Course in September.

George Wamsley accepted the trophy the trophy for his team.

Outing Committee Persons responsible for putting the Chamber’s event together include Gene Blastic, June Binkley, Augie Gappa, Dave Hyatt, Jim Hernandez, Anna Corbitt and Debbie Mix.
