Cherokee Rose

Cherokee Rose Country Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary this past weekend with a two-day 2-person scramble which attracted over 60 golfers.

The team of Mark Hewitt and Zack Dasher captured the event in the First Flight after outpacing the other teams for the two days.

The team of Jack Shuman and Dwayne Rye won Second Flight with the team of  Lori Kirk and Kort Kennedy won Third Flight and  the team of Bobby Anderson and Gregg Hewitt captured Fourth Flight.

The tournament featured 36-holes of play, food and drinks both days and the club’s first Calcutta which brought fierce bidding from the teams.

The club is making plans to make this tournament a mainstay at the club and will continue to grow and become bigger and bigger.
