Over 50 golfers comprising nine teams turned out for the 16th annual Kiwanis "Golf for Kids" Tournament on Saturday at the Goldendale Golf Club, with proceeds helping buy books for kids around the county.

On the line at the tournament was a 2018 Jeep Compass courtesy of C.H. Urness Motor Company in The Dalles for anyone who shot a hole-in-one on the par 3 No. 9 hole, although nobody achieved the feat on Saturday.

Although no one found the hole in one shot on No. 9, team 'Jim Land' out of Yakima finished 15 under par to come away as the top team of the nine that competed. Comprised of Jim, Doug, Cody, and Bob Land along with Jim Keen and Jason Christiansen, team 'Jim Land' completed the 18 hole scramble just two strokes ahead of the 'Cannon Power Hitters.'

Made up of Larry Bellamy, Janet Smith, Rich McCulley, Bill Payne, Hoby Streich, and Rich Holycross, the 'Cannon Power Hitters' finished at 13 under par to finish second among the nine teams.

Next up at the Goldendale Golf Club is the Fiesta Tournament on July 14 starting at 8:30 a.m. followed by the men's, ladies, and seniors club championships on July 21 and 22.


While the Kiwanis Tournament was taking place in Goldendale on Saturday, a pair of hometown teams were competing across the river in the Sasquatch Golf Tournament at The Dalles Country Club.

The team of Nancy Beyerlin and Jann Hoechlin finished on top of the field of around 20 teams with a net score of 68, while both members of the other Goldendale team, Sherrye Morrison and Jan Crocker, both won for longest drives.
