After being postponed for rain in May, the tournament was rescheduled for June 2, 2017 at Chesapeake Hills Golf Club. The golfers were ready to play and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The temperature was in the 60’s with a gentle breeze. General Manager of Chesapeake Hills, Tim Hepler, gave the rules to be followed and was willing to answer questions. And the golfers were off to have fun and win some prizes. There were 79 golfers on 20 teams. There were several interactive holes this year and one that seemed to be a favorite was sponsored by the non-profit Community Life Center of Southern Calvert County. Participants drove a marshmallow with a golf club and the one that went the best distance won Calloway golf balls.
