2013 Mark Jardina Golf Classic is another success!
After a very successful 1st try in 2012, we hosted the 2nd Annual Mark Jardina Golf Classic at Ansley Golf Club’s Settindown Creek Course. The move to Settindown was based on the fact that more players could play there and we had a very high demand from people from all facets of Mark’s life that were touch by his friendship.
This year the weather was perfect and we, once again, had lots of fun contests and refreshments scattered about the golf course. King of Pop’s popsicles were in 2 stations of the golf course this year and everyone seemed to love that treat. In addition, lunch was cooked up on the grill out on the course for players to enjoy while they played. We also had closest to the pins contests on all 4 par threes, including a chance to win a car from Southtowne Motors/Hal Philipson, and a long drive contest with a big Yeti Cooler from Construction Resource/Sonny Hires as the prize.
Everyone had a great time and, best of all, we raised over $20,000 for the M. A. Jardina Foundation! That money will be used to do lots of good and make a lot of children smile all in the name of a great man, Mark Jardina!
1st Place – 118 – Chad Payne, Terry Peacock, Carl Plowden, Dan Gibson
2nd Place – 119 – Jon Barry, Steve Strickland, Tom Hurney, Mike O’Shea
