In memoriam, golfers take to tees
The Dungeness Lady Niners played host to a special day of golf on April 26, with competition among players from the North Olympic Peninsula’s four golf courses.
No cash prizes were awarded, as all monies raised are to be donated directly to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, event organizers said.
The quartet of Effie Bentley, Jan Boyungs, Pat Conway and Carol Ingelsby won the event by a shot with a score of 39.
“Everyone walked away having enjoyed a delightful time together, knowing that a very worthy organization that meets the needs of many on our beautiful peninsula benefited from this special day of play,” Lee Stanley said.
