From Grouting to Golfing
“Golf is a good walk spoiled.”
- Mark Twain
On Friday August 23rd, the Welch Tile team gathered on a day so beautiful it almost looked artificial for our annual “good walk, spoiled”. Our annual golf outing was hosted by The Falls at Barber Creek. We were all excited for a day that is always full of wins, misses, and chuckles! Gathered in front of the golf carts, we had a quick lunch, a nice chat, and started off on our afternoon.
The first item on the agenda was an old favorite, the “Hit the Boat” contest. Each guest got three chances to hit a boat about 100 yards out in the middle of the pond with a golf ball. Many stepped up to the green, but only one hit the boat: the brother of one of our installers, Ryan.
Our favorite "Hit the Boat" pictures:
We then gathered for the usual company photograph and were sent off for nine holes of golf. We also set up our usual contests at different holes: longest drive (men’s- hole 4, women’s- hole 3), closest to the pin (men’s- hole 7, women’s- hole 5), and longest putt (men’s- hole 6, women’s- hole 1).
At the end of the day, we all met under the pavilion for an early dinner and the presentation of awards. Congratulations to all of our winners:
Longest Drive- Torrey C. and Kristan H.
Closest to the Pin- Tom (guest of Steve S.) and Kristi N.
Longest Putt- Ryan (guest of Torrey C.) and Lindsey N.
1st Place- Jason H., Breanna H., Dustyn C., brother Ryan
Last Place- Brandon P., guest Trent, Calvin I., and guest Crystal
Thank you to everyone who made this event a success!
