The number two green has been under construction and golfers played on a par 3 temporary green ‚?? and Curtis Hailey had a hole-in-one. There was much cheering and celebration but this feat will not be recorded in the history books. Hailey lives in Greenfield Township.
After a bounteous buffet was served to the players by Chef David Joseph, Steven Pietrzykoski and staff of the Montrose Club, Dr. Joseph Speicher, president of the medical staff, welcomed the golfers and remarked about the process by which the new hospital had become a reality. He thanked the corporate sponsors, course sponsors, employees, various funding organizations, patrons and the community at large for the on-going participation in the fruition realized by the many events.
Awards and certificates were given to the many winners.
