(Nov. 10, 2017) The 13th annual Swing for Youth Golf Open was held Oct. 28 at Eagle’s Landing Golf Course in Berlin, and once again, the event was a huge success.

Twenty-two teams competed, and with the support of participating teams, national corporate sponsors and area businesses, more than $25,000 was raised for local recreation programs.

For 25 years, the Ocean City Recreation Boosters’ golf tournaments have helped raise nearly $400,000 toward recreation program costs for children. Supporters include individual golfers, as well as national corporate sponsor Coca-Cola, Esskay and new this year, the Mary Jean and Oliver Travers Foundation, Inc. As well as a number of local partners such as Delmarva Power, General’s Kitchen, Whitman, Requardt & Associates, 84 Lumber, and long-time supporter and local businessman, Jerry Radtke.

The foursome of Sue Ellen Vickers, John Littleton, Rob Forosisky and Reagan Haldeman captured first place in this year’s tournament with a score of 111. Dan Parker, Scott Dietz, Norman Trader and Jim Krall finished second, scoring a 116.

Third place went to the General’s Kitchen team of Law Adkins, Brad Taylor, Lindwood Harmon and Loy Clements, who tallied 119 points. Delmarva Power’s team came in fourth place and included Susan and John Petito, John Allen and John Leitgeb with 120 points. In fifth was the foursome of Richard and Alyssa Bourdeaux and Steve and Mary Cornell, with a 121.

Ocean City Recreation and Parks and the Ocean City Recreation Boosters would like to thank all participants as well as the volunteers who put in many hours to have the event go off without a hitch.

Next year, the 14th annual Swing for Youth Golf Open will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27.
