Annual Golf Scramble Results
Walnut Street Fire Company No. 4 sponsored its 24th annual golf scramble July 17, 2016. There was a good turnout despite temperatures in the 90’s.
The winning foursome was Karl Eaglin, Larry Burns, Lynn McGlothin and Don Heiderman with a score of 59. Two other teams also had the same score and the winners were determined by scores on hole number 9, the most difficult hole.
The winning women’s team (from Indianapolis) was Lee Ann McKay, Robin Coffman, Cindy Stiehl and Jill Phillips.
Donnie Polling was closest to the hole on number 10 which gave him and his teammates each a shot at a hole-in-one which would have awarded them a new car, but no one sank the shot.
Scott Tucker had the longest drive on number 7, and Karl Eaglin had the long ball on number 13.
The putting contest was won in a playoff by Larry Burns.
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all the players, volunteers and to the staff at Sunrise golf course.

It carries 50 gallons of Class A foam, two pressurized water extinguishers, two 20-pound dry chemical extinguishers, a Class K extinguisher and assorted tools.
