51 of the 71 golfers were CCHS alumni and 28 classes were represented. Youngest alumni, Cheyenne Johnson (2015) and the oldest Dan Curless (1966).
Thanks to all the golfers, hole sponsors, The Whitley County Community Foundation and Head Pro Clint Miller at Eagle Glen.
Next year’s golf outing will be on August 26, 2017 at 1 p.m.

The “Teddy L. Gruver”
Founder’s Trophy is currently on display in the main office at
Columbia City High School, 600 North Whitley Street, Columbia City,
IN. Winners of this annual event will have their
names added to the trophy and a photo of the winning team will
be displayed in the CCHS main office.
The event is more about fun, sportsmanship, and fundraising to benefit current CCHS students and the community than about superior golf skills or winning the golf tournament. It is open to all who love the game, not just CCHS alumni.
All monies raised from sponsorships, donations by patrons & golfers of monetary gifts or prizes will be placed in the Whitley County Community Foundation and used for scholarships.
