Price City Press Release
The 2018 Price City International Days Championship Golf Tournament, boosted by Castleview Hospital, powered by Coca-Cola and energized by Bodec, was held on Saturday, July 28 at the Carbon County Country Club.
With over 250 golfers, vendors and volunteers in attendance, Tom King Sr., the tournament grand marshal, started the tournament with the ceremonial first tee shot. Keith Cox lit and shot the cannon for the blasts to get things underway.
Golf pro Tom King commented that the International Days Golf Tournament has become the biggest premiere scramble tournament south of the Wasatch Front. This year, 32 teams from throughout the state participated and competed.
The day started early with breakfast for everyone sponsored by Sutherlands and the presentation of the colors by the Price American Legion. The day concluded with lunch and a cadre of contestants vying to make a hole-in-one shot for a $100,000 cash prize. Unfortunately, there were not any winners this year.
The Tubbs team of Brady Tubbs, Jeter Tubbs, Clay Finkbiner and Josh Eden took home the top spot with a team score of 54, an impressive 16 strokes under par.
The tournament consisted of long drive, putting and closest to the hole contests as well as dozens of prize drawings provided by the many great vendors and merchants helping out at the tee boxes throughout the day.
Alf himself (the man, the myth, the legend) was in attendance and pushed his hole #5 Alf Sauce Crew to a best vendor award as voted on by all the participants.
Price City thanks the many great tournament sponsors, vendors, volunteers, golfers and staff that made the tournament a great success. All tournament proceeds will be distributed to local area charities in the coming months by Price City.
