The inaugural Pat Clubb Memorial Golf Tournament recently raised $3,500 for Blue Mountain Community College student scholarships.
The event was held Sept. 23 at Quail Ridge Golf Course in Baker City in memory of the late Pat Clubb, who lived in Baker County with her husband, Jack, a supporter of the BMCC Foundation. Students from Baker, Union and Wallowa counties can apply for the Pat Clubb Memorial Scholarship through the BMCC Foundation.
Jack Clubb greeted guests at the tournament to honor his late wife. BMCC board of education member Bob Savage, who represents Baker County in the BMCC service district, worked with the BMCC Foundation and BMCC Baker County Center director Dan Koopman to organize the event.
The winning team, with a low score of 58 for 18 holes, was Candace Hoskins, Todd Crockett, Mark Grigg and Ricky Gloria from Baker City. The second place team, with a score of 62, included Mike Barhyte, Joe Rosenberg, Gary Prout and Tim Gilbert of Pendleton. A total of 11 teams participated in the event.
A 2018 Chevy Malibu was up for grabs as a hole-in-one prize, sponsored by Baker Garage, but no one made the shot. Participants also enjoyed a tri-tip barbecue lunch prepared by BMCC alumni and former Associated Student Government president Bill Markgraf, his wife, Calesta, and their daughter, Nicole. All three are BMCC graduates and were part of BMCC’s agriculture program. They now ranch in Baker City.
“It was incredible to receive such support from Baker citizens to make this tournament a success,” said Margaret Gianotti, executive director of the BMCC Foundation.
Anyone interested in contributing to the Pat Clubb Memorial Scholarship or any other BMCC scholarship is encouraged to call Gianotti at 541-278-5775 or Koopman at 541-523-2358.
