ALUMNI REIGN AT ANNUAL
weather threatened to wash out the alumni golf outing Saturday, June 12
in Chesterton, Indiana, but sunshine gave the 94 golfers a mulligan in
A heavy thunderstorm the
night before left The Brassie Golf Club soggy in some spots, but once the
course dried, John Dieck '93, Dean Vander Zee '94, Joe Graffeo '94, and
Steve Balkema '95 emerged with an 11-under 61, the lowest score of any
foursome. John Bandstra and Alan Van Zuidum were the winning duo after
carding a 69.
"The rain added length to
the course, but it softened the greens as well," said Dennis Harms '89,
director of alumni and donor relations. "The conditions invited the players
to fire at the flagsticks, and the game is easier and more fun to play
under those conditions. I think everyone who participated enjoyed themselves
on the course."
The annual outing raises
funds for Alumni Scholarships, which are given each year to students whose
parents are alumni of the College. This year's event generated more than
$6,500 for those awards.
Scott Pothoven '97, Chris
Van Til '99, Brad Brunsma '99, and Nate Rinsema '00 took second place among
the foursomes of the best-ball scramble format while Tom Kamp '92 and Tom
Nagelkirk '92 were the runner-up pair.
The alumni relations office
held a Dutch auction that included passes to The Brassie, tickets to Chicago
White Sox and Chicago Cubs baseball games, and golf balls.
