21 teams competed on July 28th in the 5th Annual AAHS Foundation Golf Tournament at the Appleton Golf Course. It was a perfect day for golf with partly cloudy skies, temperature in the low 80’s and a slight breeze. There was a hole-in-one opportunity on holes 8 & 9 for a 2016 Chevy Malibu sponsored by Heartland Motor Company of Morris. While there were no winners, there were a couple players that got pretty close. Rave reviews were given to the burger baskets grilled by Barry from Shooter’s that were available all afternoon for participants. The competition wrapped up around 5:30 and a short program was held in the club house for announcement of winners and prize drawings.
