Lake Chelan Senior Men’s Golf Division - July 24

CHELAN - The Lake Chelan Senior Men’s Golf Club met at the Lake Chelan Golf Course for regular Wednesday play on July 24.  There were approximately 25 golfers that teed off at 8 a.m.  The members welcomed Ray Wilson’s guest, Doug Siefkes who joined the members for the round of golf.

Prior to play, Mike Storey, a Men’s Club Golf Tournament Committee Member provided a summary of the successful Apple Cup Open Golf Tournament which took place beginning on Friday, July 19 and concluded on Sunday, July 21 at the Lake Chelan Golf Course.  Mike’s main message was to inform the Senior Men’s group the golf tournament was a big success and the Men’s Club raised sufficient funds to continue offering Annual College Scholarships to two local graduating Chelan or Manson High School Students and to be able to financially support the Chelan High School Boys’ and Girls’ Golf Teams.   

Chuck Mallow and Cliff House were recognized for winning their Division at the Apple Cup Open Golf Tournament.  Dr. Darrell Richards, Stefan Dobratz, Tony Montoya, Ellis Nierenberg, Mike Storey and Bob Matson were also recognized for winning one or more competitions at the Tournament.

Dan Dedo, Ellis Nierenberg, Tony Montoya, Bob Matson, Ray Wilson, Stefan Dobratz, John Hancock, Mike Storey, Ed Ferguson, Scott Patrick, Matt Froman, Eric Lorenz, and Dr. Darrell Richards were thanked for their volunteer efforts in support of the Apple Cup Open Golf Tournament.
