Veterans Day golf event a smashing success


Charlie Shultheis

On Friday, November 10, 2017, the Quail Creek Veterans Golf Association held their annual Veterans Day Golf Event. This latest event featured 26 four-person teams playing in a scramble format. All the teams had a great time as the weather cooperated with sunshine and warm temperatures with a modicum of breeze. The team of QCVGA President Tom Haberer, Col Doug Hadley (a 162nd ANG Fighter Wing guest), Pat Maloney and Daryl Skobba finished first in the event with a net score of 51.3 – a really great score! Following the golf round, the participants enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom.

Of more importance to the VGA is that the QCVGA Charity fund netted more than $4,300 for our charity projects over the coming year. That bonanza came from sponsors, VGA members and QC residents through golf entries and the multiple raffles (we raffled a handmade grandfather clock, a 50/50 raffle and another raffle for a variety of donated prizes) plus tee box signs. Since 2013, the QCVGA has provided over $20,000 in assistance to support local veterans and military families including Camp Bravo, the Tucson VA’s Fisher House and the 162nd ANG Fighter Wing Family Readiness Program.
