This year we were blessed to have three people step up and underwrite the registration cost for charities and their teams to participate in the 2016 Quakerdale Winter Classic ProAm year-end fundraiser.

Congratulations to all our division medalists. We hope to see you at the Awards Desert to receive your medals.
Of the 363 people who participated in the 2016 Quakerdale Winter Classic ProAm, 286 qualified to compete for Tournament Champion and started out with an even-Par 72 golf score. Of those who qualified, 39 were able to raise $50 or more to provide themselves the opportunity to reduce strokes on holes of their choice, and thus improve their golf score. Here’s how the top 39 ‘golfers’ finished:
24 players raised the minimum of $50 and were able to lower their score to a 1-under 71 and a tie for 16th place.
Six players raised at least $100 and were able to lower their score to a 2-under 70, tying for 10th place.
Three players raised $150 or more, lowered their score to a 3-under 69, and finished in 7th place.
Two players, Doug H (323) and RTalbot (325), both raised $200, lowered their score to a 4-under 68, and tied for 5th place.
Jim B (322) raised $250, lowered his score to a 5-under 67, and finished in 4th place.
This Year’s Trophy Winners are:
Third Place, and Second Runner-Up:
Dan Whitehead, Shell, Ecuador
Raised $300 and shot a 6-under 66
Second Place, and First Runner-Up:
Dave Holm, Waterloo, Iowa
Raised $350 and shot a 7-under 65
First Place, and 2016 Tournament Champion
Dan Smith, Aplington, Iowa
Raised $450 and shot a 9-under 63
We hope to see our Tournament Champions at the Award Desert so we can present them their trophies in person. I’m not sure how that will work for Dan Whitehead. He might have to make arrangements to have someone accept on his behalf. Even though he is a pilot, the 3,165 mile one-way flight might be a little too much!

Conceived in 2015, the event is designed to help expand awareness, increase online email subscriptions, and invite people to join their work as a volunteer, donor, or legacy supporter (leaving a legacy through a planned gift). The 2015 Quakerdale Winter Classic results for Quakerdale alone included an increase of 23 time in web traffic, more than 392,000 impressions on 71,000 plus Twitter accounts, nearly doubled their online subscriptions, and had 161 participants (100 from Iowa, 60 from the US, and one international).
“This year is lining up to be something really special” said Dan Smith, tournament director. “We cannot thank Beaver Hills Country Club enough for stepping up and hosting this year’s event. I’m excited to see what God is going to do through this virtual golf tournament to position some awesome charities to do amazing work in 2017.” The event is open to the public. If you would like to support one of these charities, you can contact them using the information provided below their listing.
