GOLF COLUMN: Bob Cup raises over $20,000 for Clallam Mosaic

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS were raised for a permanent home for Clallam Mosaic at the third annual Bob Cup charity golf tournament at Cedars at Dungeness in Sequim last month.

Clallam Mosaic is a nonprofit working to empower individuals with special needs.

Between sponsors, registration fees, mulligans, silent and live auctions, barbecue attendees, raffle tickets and open donations, more than $20,000 was raised, according to Clallam Mosaic program coordinator Catherine McKinney.

Three Clallam Mosaic clients, Michael Rief, David Carver and Carr Brackett, demonstrated their golfing abilities during the 18-hole event.

Sporting his recently won Special Olympics regional gold medal, Carr and his partner, his father Randy Brackett, were among the teams competing for the Bob Cup. This tournament was good practice for the Special Olympics State Tournament at Snohomish Golf Course, coming up Saturday.

“People met up with friends, made new ones, and fondly remembered Bob Duncan, the tournament’s namesake, all while raising funds for Clallam Mosaic,” said Randy Brackett, president of Mosaic’s board of directors.

“We exceeded what we made in 2017 and know the event will continue to grow year on year as the word gets out,” said Mary Jane Duncan, organizer of the tournament. “And we added the mulligan option this year for $20, allowing players to throw or kick the ball if they’re in a tough spot, which quickly became very popular.”

Throughout the day there was an array of on-course challenges including KP prizes, a shot at putting a ball in a boat on the pond at the 17th hole and the always-popular Putt for Wine on the practice green.

As the teams finished up their rounds, another 30 people arrived to partake of the tournament barbecue, auctions and raffles.

Tournament organizers thanked the event’s lengthy list of sponsors for their contributions.

The 2019 Bob Cup Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, July 27.

The Spring Shotgun boasted a full field of 108 players, so Peninsula head pro Chad Wagner is hoping to fill up the fall with another full field.

A total prize pool of $13,000 worth of merchandise will be available for a full field.

“The tournament includes food, drink tickets, a practice round for players and spouses, an amazing tee prize, increased payouts and a package from 7 Cedars Casino,” Wagner said.

All players will get a shot at a KP on the full swing golf simulator.

A barbecue lunch will be served both days of play.

Cost is $260 per team.

The fun begins with a team auction (Calcutta) and hors d’oeuvres at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31.

Tee times are 8:30 a.m. and 1:45 p.m., so if you tee off in the morning on day one, you’ll play in the afternoon on day two.
