2012 VGPA Grain Open

Golf Tournament Recap

 

The 2012 VGPA Grain Open Golf Tournament was held this past Friday, August 10th at Piankatank River Golf Club in Hartfield, VA. This year’s tournament was well attended by grain producers and industry partners from across the Commonwealth. The rains held off for the duration of the tournament, making for a great round of golf. The day was capped off with a steak dinner and awards ceremony at the club house.

 

The 5th hole featured a hole-in-one contest sponsored by Fleet Brothers and Rappahannock Tractor. If a player scored a hole-in-one on this hole they would win their choice of a Massey Ferguson or John Deere tractor. Several golfers came within feet and inches of winning, but no one managed to take home a tractor!

 

The top teams were awarded a round of golf for four at the Tides Inn Golden Eagle Golf Club and Piankatank River Golf Club; the runner-up teams along with the longest drive and closest-to-the-pin winners were given packages of prizes generously provided by our agriculture industry partners.
