Highland Classic - 17th on the 17th!
June 4th, 2012
Friday, August 17th 2012 was a terrific day for the 17th annual Highland Classic Golf Tournament at the Amherst Golf Club. Even though golfers experienced a wide array of weather conditions, play was uninterrupted and everyone was able to enjoy all of the special hole activities and taste the delicious treats provided by Jeanne’s Cakehouse, The Art of Eating Deli, The Wandlyn Inn, CIBC Wood Gundy, the Auxiliary Café and the Foundation BBQ.
There was an exciting moment when one player came within an inch of making a hole-in-one, and a near-tie for the championship which was won by the IMP/Local 4883 Team: Jamie Crockett, Steven Bird, Bruce Hebert and Jamie Brown.
