Instruction was provided by Joe Shelton, Wilkin, Rick Shelton and Matt Sharkey. Papa John’s, Ponsderosa Steakhouse and the Elks provided free food and drinks for those participating this year.

Twenty-five teams participated Saturday in the annual Child/Adult Golf Tournament at Hillsboro Elks Post 361. The kids played for free. Pictured are most of those that participated.
