2020 has been full of surprises, including a rain-free day for the 2020 EC Golf Outing! Rain at the annual outing has become somewhat of a joke among many – and this year was a pleasant surprise with a beautiful fall day. 

On Monday, October 19, 2020, 114 golfers came together at Wild Turkey Golf Club in Hamburg, NJ for a day of supporting the mission of Eastern Christian School through golf. It was a great day on the course with time of fellowship, catching-up, and seeing mask-less faces of friends and community members outdoors.

The day began with a putting contest and lunch, followed by the scramble format outing, and concluding with a delicious dinner under a big top tent. 

This year’s contest winners:

  • First Place Foursome – Bruce Balkema, Daryl Leegwater, Tyler Balkema, Jared Minatelli
  • Second Place Foursome – Jeff Vander Molen, Henry Hagedoorn, Noah Hagedoorn, Joe O’Connor
  • Third Place Foursome – Jeff DeKorne, Brandon Steiginga, Greg Hagedoorn, Art Vooys
  • Putting Contest Winner – Tom Turner
  • Closest to the Pin, Pin #16 Winner – Jeff DeKorne 2′ 6″
  • Closest to the Pin, Pin #2 – Steve Gorter 6′ 11″
  • Straightest Drive #11 – Steve Heerema
  • Longest Drive #3 Winner – Noah Hagedoorn

Thanks to our Golf Committee; Kurt Faber (Chairman), Henry Hagedoorn, Dwayne Leegwater, Scott Martin, Bill Van Hoff; to volunteers Sue Leegwater and Laura Steenstra, and to the EC Foundation office. This group solicited sponsors and prizes to help make the event a success and then managed all the details for the day.
