Brown and his partner finished in first place in the two-golfer scramble, followed by Hilgenberg and his partner in second and Thornton and his partner in third. Hilgenberg is a co-developer of the golf course.
Longest putt winners included McKie on the first hole, Kozlowski on the ninth and Brown on the 13th. Thornton and his partner won “closest from off the green” honors on 17.
The round of golf was followed by cocktails and dinner. The event was sponsored by Mercedes Benz.
