The Morton Golf Foundation’s 7th Annual Putting Party was a Resounding Success

The Putting Party might be the happiest Morton Golf Foundation event of the year!

The Morton Golf Foundation’s 2018 Putting Party was held on September 19 this year and featured 18 holes of putting, scramble style, under the lights on the putting green at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. Teams consisted of friends or colleagues as they competed together as a team against other teams in the event. The course played challenging this year, with judges even witnessing a few three putts (which is unusual in a scramble format.

2018 Morton Golf Foundation Putting Party Winners – Weapons of Grass Destruction

When the dust had settled and the scores were tallied, the best putters of the night were TEAM BONNEVILLE who nicknamed themselves “Weapons of Grass Destruction” – and consisted of the players Steve Cottingim, Katy Brown Jones, Dell Goetz, Oscar Chiarella, and Brandon Bettar. In recognition of their win, they received the perpetual Putting Party trophy which will be displayed in their offices until next year when they will try to win it all over again.

A unique feature of “The Putting Party” is that everyone can play, including non-golfers. There aren’t many golf-themed fundraising events where you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy the event! However, at the Morton Golf Foundation’s annual Putting Party, if you can hold a putter, then you’ll have a blast!  In fact, each year the Morton Golf Foundation receives feedback from some of the corporate-sponsored teams. In 2018, they heard “All year the golfers in our company get to play in the various golf tournaments, but the Morton Golf Foundation Putting Party is the event we get to enjoy each year, and we do not even play golf.”

Golf continues to be a game for everyone. Please consider sponsoring a team and joining in September 2019 for the 8th Annual Putting Party as the fun continues.
