1st Anual Golf Tournament!

BackNineHomes.com sponsors a hole and a team for this event

The Rotary Club of North Raleigh held its first annual golf tournament on April 29 and it was a huge success. Despite not reaching the participation goals that the club representatives set, they had great participation from the community and a wonderful event was held for all of those in attendance.

Mike Riddick of Riddick Insurance chaired the event on behalf of the Rotarty Club and did an amazing job to put this event together. Several other Rotarians assisted in the planning of this event that is being planned as an annual fundraiser for the club.

As a member of this Rotary club, Steven W. Nelson and Back Nine Homes sponsored a team and a hole for this event. Although the team did not bring home a win, a great time was held by all in attendance. The BackNineHomes.com team included Steven W. Nelson, Greg Brissette, Hurly Gough and Steve Henion. “With my limited skill, I cannot say that I was a major assistance to the team, but I did have a few shots that helped the team”, reported Mr. Nelson. “The reason we get together is for those who will be helped because of the contributions of all of the participants”, added Mr. Nelson.

As this was a shot-gun start, the BackNineHomes.com team started on the 15th hole. The team finished with 4 birdies and 2 bogies for a 2 under par. Although we were not the winners, we avoided the bottom of the list as there were 2 teams below us.

Despite not winning the tournament, we did have a winner among  us. The longest drive contest that was held on the Par 5 7th hole was won by one of our team members, Hurly Gough. Hurly had a great day as he also won one of several closet to the pin competitions. For his efforts, he took home 2 gift certificates to local restaurants.

“Due to the great work of the Rotary and the enjoyment of the event itself”, stated Mr. Nelson, “BackNineHomes.com plans to sponsor a team next year and possibly enhance our support of this great event.”

Wildwood Greens Golf Course is a semi-private course in North Raleigh located off of Strickland Road. Wildwood Green is a very challenging course with several water hazards, a few long par 5s and some very difficult par 4s that force you to craft your shot to ensure reaching the green in regulation. For more information about this course, you can visit the website at wildwoodgreen.com
