A beautiful morning for a golf tournament, the 18th Annual LFS Golf Classic was a “Tee Off for Hope” at the Arrowhead Golf Club on the 25th. With 103 individual golfers in teams of four, the event was a wonderful success and even beat the weather to the punch, wrapping up before a torrential downpour.

Reggie Rivers visited with golf teams and joked that he was sorry the Broncos Cheerleaders weren’t available, but he would have to do. CEO Jim Barclay thanked golfers and supporters for being “great sports and continuing the good wishes and good will for LFS.”

Doug Phelps, a notable contributor and supporter played alongside teammates Steve Wilson, Bret Packard, and Peter Tandy. Jason Nefs, Scott Konechy, Justin Barnes, and Scott Smith took home the 1st place trophy and were all grins at the ceremony.
