The 3rd Annual Capital Cup Challenge was held at William Land Golf Course under perfect conditions. The event was kicked-off on Wednesday, December 1st with a practice round to get everyone geared up for the competition the following day.
The sun was shining bright, the wind was low and the golf course was in perfect playing condition.
There were 8 City Elected Officials wearing blue shirts playing a 2-person scramble golf match against the 8 County Elected Officials wearing red shirts.
CITY TEAM (Blue Shirts): COUNTY TEAM (Red Shirts):
Rick Jennings Donald Terry
Katie Valenzvela Garrett Gatewood
Darrell Steinberg Patrick Kennedy
Kevin McCarty Rick Launey
Lauren Hammond Brian Cooley
Steve Cohn Nancy Bui Thompson
Rob Fong Mike Kozlowski
Jay Schenirer Stephanie Nguyen
When the 9-hole match finished the County -vs- City was tied 2 – 2 . It was time for a putt off match on the putting green.
The 2 County Elected Officials winning the final putt for the County team were Nancy Bui Thompson and Brian Cooley.
A new 2021 plaque will be added to the perpetual trophy that will now move to the County’s territory. For the past 2 years, this tournament was won by the City teams until now.
The dollars raised for the past 3 years go toward the construction and sustaining the Morton Golf Foundation Life & Golf Skills Academy at Hiram Johnson High School. The Community Services Project funds raised will be used for the construction project installing Phase 1 of the Stadium concept which will benefit all students & the community in the Hiram Johnson neighborhood. The Hiram Johnson community will have the opportunity to participate not only in the after school golf programs but also throughout the summer months.
Our hope is to have construction in 2022 and by this event next year we’ll kick it off with hoping that everyone participating has had the opportunity to tour the new Life & Golf Skills Academy at Hiram Johnson High School.
