The 11th annual “Score Fore” Kittson Memorial Golf Tournament was held on Thursday, July 13, at the Two River Golf Course in Hallock, MN. The course was in beautiful shape to match our perfect weather day for an incredible July day to golf. The beautiful new R.C. Nelson Pavilion on hole number five added to the fun for the day.
Twenty two teams registered to golf in the tournament. We had a brand new champion crowned this year, upsetting both State Farm Insurance, the defending champions. Champions of the 2017 “Score Fore” tournament were Quinten Gjerde, John Karboviak, Nathan Kennedy and Jackson Russell. Second place was Chris Jerome’s team and third place in the first flight was State Farm Insurance.
Winners of the second flight were: firstplace – Bakken Construction; second place – Team CIA (Crop Improvement Associates) and third place went to American Federal. In the third flight, the winners were Ruud Men; second place – Isaacson’s and third place went to Karlstad Senior Living Center.
The funds from this year’s tournament are going to help with the remodel of the lab. Kittson Memorial was awarded a $125,000 grant from the Minnesota Department of Health to purchase a new analyzer and update other equipment. New countertops and flooring are needed to accommodate the positioning of the new analyzer.
Next year’s tournament will be held in Lancaster on Thursday, July 12, 2018.
