Organizers say the annual Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes golf tournament at the Indian Trace Course had a good turnout under much better than predicted weather conditions. 

The fundraiser featured two flights. Players enjoyed lunch provided by the Chick-fil-A on West Walnut Avenue in Dalton, and goody bags were provided by the Georgia Sheriffs Youth Homes. 

Top three teams from each flight received cash prizes. The Murray County Sheriffs team finished with a select shot low score of 53. They are Ron Wilson, Detective Brad Hall, Dr. Maria Bradley, and Detective Kyle Parker. Afternoon second place was Acree, Jinright, and Leonard Accountants with Mike Jenright, Randy Hill, Randy Foster, and David Hicks with a 55.  Third place for the second flight went to the Whitfield County Sheriffs Department 57. Playing for WCSD were Ty Guy, Bruce Jordan, Dennis Cooper, and John Gibson.

First place from the morning was earned by a team from Cross Point Church in Dalton. Tom Marales, John-Paul Burdashaw, Adam Alderete, and Michael Young had a select shot score of 59. The Gordon County Sheriff’s Department finished second in the morning. Ritchie Harris, Ben Worley, Chuck Kirby, and Alex Sutherland shot a 61. Corner Drugs was third at 63. They were Jim Richards, Brandon Stone, Jack Lindsay, and Michael Fortner.  

The tournament benefits Georgia Sheriffs Cherokee Estate, a girls home in Dalton, and MountainView, a boys home in Chatsworth.
