SOUTHBOROUGH – Boy Scout Troop 92 recently held its first golf tournament on June 10 at the Southborough Golf Course.

Money raised from the golf tournament will go toward future Troop 92 activities, including camping trips and community service projects. Past service projects the troop has been involved in include fundraising for the Senior Center and Southborough Youth and Family Services, Eagle Scout projects and bottles and cans for veterans. 

The golf tournament kicked off with the first tee-off at 9 a.m.

The golfers walked or rode in golf carts from hole to hole. At each hole, there was a water station where two to three scouts gave out water to the golfers and signs displaying the names of the local businesses that sponsored Troop 92. 

During the tournament, Troop 92 scouts cooked and served meals, including breakfast sandwiches and burgers and hotdogs. 

At the end of the tournament, the top three winners were awarded $500 for first place, $400 for second and $300 for third.

First place winners included Tom Curran, Jason Curran, Robby Griffin and Sean Hurley. Second place winners included Peter Gargalianos, Mark Santoro, Mike Riley and Steve Gargalianos. Third place winners included Pete Anderson, Yvonne Wright, Phil Wright and Melissa Fustino. 

The longest drive was Jason Curran, and the golfer who shot closest to the pin was Jim Mullins. 

Troop 92 also had raffle baskets with various themes, including Eat Out to Help a Scout, Hair Today Gone Tomorrow, Road Trip, Golf, Pool Party and Backyard Chill Out. All of the contents of the baskets were donated by local businesses. 

Troop 92 hopes to bring the event back next year with even more folders. If you missed out on this year’s tournament, join them next year.
