Ray Wooten won the Longest Drive Contest of $25 cash and a $25 Wal-Mart gift card.  John Burnette won the drawing for the Digital Camera donated by Aaron’s Sales & Lease as sponsor of the Night Glow items return.  Unfortunately we had to return the 2012 Camaro to Woody Folsom Automotive who was the generous sponsor of the Hole-in-One Contest.  Each player was presented with a golf towel and bag of tees by the Heritage Bank of the South.  The night portion of the golf tournament is especially fun for the golfers, but also for the spectators who enjoy the lights along the course.
