More than a dozen teams of four teed off in the Rotary Club’s 10th Annual Golf Tournament in support of the Relay for Life Program.

Sixty golfers competed in 15 teams in an 18-hole scramble at the Fallon Golf Course which featured a complimentary lunch with a raffle and prizes for the first place winners. The tournament raised $4500 which will go toward the local projects of the Rotary Club as well as the Relay for Life.

Karla Kent, Rotary Club member and event chair, issues a thank you to the golfers, hole sponsors and donors for making this event such a success.

The three leading teams all tied at 54, including the foursome of Jim Isbister, Troy Tweed, Jason Kirby and Ed Smirnes in first followed by the team of Alan and Theron Kalt, Terrin Aro and Claude Dickens at second. Lawren and Yvonne Mori along with Garn Detomasi and Ryan McCormick took third.

“This was the first of the four major tournaments for Fallon and I am sure the Isbister team is going to try and take them all,” Kent said of the winning team.

Other upcoming tournaments in Fallon include the Fourth Annual Golf Tournament for the Arts, a fundraiser sponsored by the Arts Center of Fallon to take place on June 18, as well as the Fallon Youth Club Tournament, the Regan Tournament and the Major’s Cup.
