Fourteen teams made their way onto the Cobblestone Golf Course in Muskogee early Saturday on June 11, 2016 for a shot at the top prize.  The teams were comprised of fourteen foursomes, each doing their best to show off their skills and enjoy a fun round of golf.

The competition was the annual Golf Scramble, presented by Connors State College’s athletic department. Proceeds of the day’s event go to athletic scholarships for potential Cowboys and Cowgirls.

Tee off was at 8:00 a.m., and the cool morning air was accompanied by the chirps of birds and the warm sun peeking through the clouds as the tournament began.

The competition was fierce, but in the end only one team could walk away the victors. The team who took first place and the cash prize was Harrison Tire of Muskogee, in second Armstrong Bank of Warner and third was Jack Harrion’s team.

“We had a great day of golfing,” said Bill Muse, Connors State Athletic Director. “We raised some great funds for the athletic department and we all had a nice afternoon. What more can you ask for.”
