FRUIT HEIGHTS -- Judging by the golfer's reactions coming off of the course, the eighth annual Davis County Children's Justice Center Golf Tournament was a big success. "It was a good time for everybody," said Doug Miller, director of the Children's Justice Center. The event is the primary fund-raiser for the center, as each golfer paid $125 or $600 per team. Those competing were treated to a continental breakfast and lunch, along with tips from professional golfer bruce Summerhays. Summerhays stood on the first hole, and hit a drive for each team, and then gave advice as each member took a swing.
"He's a draw for our tournament. A lot of golfers come back just to see him," Miller said.
In addition, a corporate sponsorship of $2,000 provided a half-day golf seminar with Summerhays at the place of employment, and a corporate team received a private round with Summerhays.
"They get to rub elbows with a professional," Miller said.
At press time, the Children's Justice Center wasn't sure how much money was raised at the tournament. The Layton Wal-Mart is matching all proceeds collected from the tournament.
