The Milaca Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual golf tournament fund raiser last Thursday at Stone’s Throw Golf Course north of Milaca. There were 88 competitors on teams of four that spent the afternoon on the course doing their best to go low.
The lowest team when the dust settled was the team sponsored by the Insurance Shoppe thanks to a tie breaking birdie on hole No. 9 to make their 51 better than a team sponsored by Stone’s Throw Golf Course. In third place was the team sponsored by Aaron Larsen Construction as they shot a 53.
Sara Jacobson won the women’s long putt contest and Heather Hoeck won the women’s long drive contest. Dan Meyer won long putt for the men, while Dave Broberg won long drive and Nate Ryan won closest to the pin.
After the tournament there was a putting contest, which was won by Dave Leom. Kim Molacek won a prize from Mike Nelson’s Auto Glass for being the closest to a windshield parked on the fairway–she hit it.
The money raised at the event goes toward Chamber funded events.

To go along with the event were several mini events. Winner of the longest drive for the men was Warren Johnson. Women’s longest drive went to Wendy Hoeck. Men’s longest putt was sunk by Scott Holt, while Wendy Hoeck earned her second victory of the tournament for the women’s long putt. Heather Hoeck earned closest to the pin honors for the women, and Tom Wilken was closest for the men.
The team of Hasz and Tom Wilken had the fewest putt on the day as well with 22.
Five skins were also paid out to teams with the lowest scores on five of the 18 holes.
