Golfers from around the Mid-Shore recently teed off to raise money for Habitat for Humanity of Talbot and Dorchester Counties. The organization hosted its 2009 Golf Tournament under sunny skies at Clearview at Horn’s Point in Cambridge. All funds raised from the event, through sponsorships, registration fees, and tee signs, will be go to support Habitat’s efforts to construct decent, affordable homes for qualifying families that work and/or live in Talbot or Dorchester Counties.
The Back Creek Crew hosted by John Robinson came off the fairway with the lowest score net handicap and the eponymous Mason Little Team came away with the lowest score gross handicap.
“It was a beautiful golf day, on a great course, for a great cause,” said Aly Valentine, Habitat Board member and player on the joint Harrison Street Books and 96.7 WCEI team. “Habitat’s mission is so essential to the community and there was a real sense of camaraderie among the players in support of that.”
