Staff report

What a weekend it was at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

George Dupuy aced the par-3 seventh hole and 84-year-old Pete Nielsen nearly drained his tee shot on No. 17 during the 19th annual Booster Club golf tournament.

More than 250 golfers participated in the two-day event, which raised $14,000 apiece for South Tahoe and Whittell high schools.

Winning the Saturday scramble tournament was the foursome of Tony Russo, Ken and Sam Issac and Sam Louden. Sunday’s champs were Darrell and Douglas Berg, Joe Goodwin and Sam Hansen.

Dupuy received $100 for his hole in one, which earned him closest-to-the pin honors hands down. Nielsen took home the closest-to-the prize on No. 17 by hitting his tee ball 5 inches from the cup.

Edgewood Tahoe annually donates the course and facilities to the cause, which helps fund athletics. Many local businesses donated prizes, sponsored holes and provided food and beverages that also helped make this fundraiser successful. Both schools provided volunteers to help the tournament run smoothly.

Trophies were awarded to the teams which finished with the top three aggregate scores each day, plus trophies were given each day to the team that took “the most shots for their money.”
