MILTON – The Wynding Brook Golf Club was the ideal setting for this year’s Muncy Cup golf event.
Curtis Reese and Curtis Hendricks were this year’s first-place gross 2-person team and Jim Vanderlin and Thom Penfield were the 2-person net winners; second place gross was the Wayne and Rich Bailey team and Tom and Travis Ward took second net; Dave Mayer and Mark Engler placed third gross and Brent Frey and Bob Simpson took third place net.
Curtis Hendricks and Sandi Ricotta won closest to pin contests on holes 2 and 13 respectively; Jay Reed placed his ball closest to the line on hole 4; and Sandi Ricotta and Curtis Reese had the longest drives on hole 5; and Travis Ward won the on-course putting contest. After lunch, the eligible contest winners attempted, unsuccessfully, to hole a 51-foot putt in the standalone putting contest.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Muncy Historical Society whose mission is making a positive impact on its community. The Historical Society, committed to preserving local history and heritage for future generations, has other 2016 initiatives, which include 1) completing the towpath trail from the Susquehanna River to where the canal reaches Pepper Street; 2) adding a second floor to the Society’s cement block building which will house our Sprout Waldron exhibits; and 3) sponsoring the Williamsport Symphony Orchestra for the second “Pops at Pepper Street” free, family-oriented concert on August 6, 2016.
