Monday, April 30 turned out to be a beautiful sunny day, 97 golfers took to the links at Polo Golf & Country Club in Cumming, Georgia. The annual event managed to raise about $15,000 this year which will be divided equally amongst five charitable organizations. The first-place team from Turner Construction Company will have their company name permanently engraved on the CBRE | Heery Cup. The runner-up team from Humphries just squeaked by the third-place team from Trane.
Winners of the longest drives were Denny Victor and Jennifer Henderson. Closest to the pin winners included Clay Adams, Eric Ross, Josh Fenn, and Darin Stinson. RJ Zurak won the putting contest in a sudden death playoff.
