Having fun was par for the course Wednesday, as 140 players competed in the 33rd annual Funds for Education Golf Tournament, hosted by the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce.

The tournament, held at Beaver Meadow Golf Course, began bright and early at 8 a.m. and featured a day of putting and course contests. The event was sponsored by local businesses, and participants signed up to compete at rates of $150 per person and $600 per team.

The money raised from the event helps to fund two Chamber of Commerce programs: Business Grants for Teachers, which awards money to area teachers who have developed innovative programs in local K-12 schools and the Capital Area Student Leadership program, which helps young people develop their leadership skills to contribute to the Concord community. According to Timothy Sink, Chamber of Commerce president, the event raised about $40,000 to $45,000 gross, before expenses.

“It was a great day on the course for all the businesses and organizations that support the tournament,” said Sink.

The winning team was Jonathan Watkins, Greg Woodsum, Bob Bethel and Tyler Halstead of the The Rowley Agency, Inc. In second place was Nathan Wechsler & Company, PA and in third place was Dennehy and Bouley, LLC.
