It was a beautiful day for golf on Monday, August 26, as golfers, sponsors, and friends gathered at Westwood Country Club for the 33rd annual Cleveland Lutheran High School Association Golf Classic.
Upon arrival, golfers were greeted by CLHSA staff and checked in, each receiving this year’s golf outing shirt (generously sponsored by Lutheran Church Extension Fund) and a trio of Pro-V 1 golf balls, each printed with an organization logo: CLHSA, Lutheran East, and Lutheran West.
Lunch, sponsored by the Pierstorf Memorial Fund, was served on Westwood’s outdoor patio. Golfers and guests enjoyed a brat and hot dog bar with side dishes and desserts before heading out onto the course for the scramble-format outing.
On Hole #9, golfers had the chance to win a two-year lease on a brand new Buick, provided by Joyce Buick, by making a hole-in-one. Though several golfers came close, none succeeded. However, a hole-in-one on Hole #14 was also worth a significant prize -- a package of apparel and accessories from Oakley worth over $800 -- and one talented golfer, Carl Ludwig, accomplished a hole-in-one and won the prize package! Congratulations, Carl!Additional contest winners:Longest Drive-Men’s
