George Cave/Greg Miller and Mike Martin/Richard Boyd won the men’s division of the ninth annual Dove House Golf Tournament.

The Port Ludlow Golf Course hosted the yearly fundraiser Friday, Aug. 27.

Winning the women’s division were Cindy Breed/Jane Guiltinan and Jane Peoples/Wanda Synnestvadt.

Dave Jackson/Gary Baird and Lucinda Thompson/Shelley Washburn were tops in the mixed division.

This year’s Dove House golf benefit had a total of 128 players participating. 

Heavy rain was an unanticipated guest, however, and caused havoc during registration. The rain continued until the eighth hole but then the skies cleared and everyone was dry by the time the awards dinner was held at the Bay Club afterwards. 

The community came out for this year’s benefit, with 11 major sponsors, 23  tee sponsors, and 30 raffle baskets donated by the community. 

Other winners in the men’s division were Alex Galang/Brett McMillian and Hollis Andrews/James Wilder in second place; Brady Bagby/Jake Love and Jordan Gassman/Kyle Wagner placed third; and Chris Wenger/Don Roberts and Mike Field/Tone Madsen followed in fourth.

Kathi Williams/Mandy Whipple and Meryl Friedman/Peggy Selby claimed second place in the women’s division.

In the mixed division, Diane Germain/Hazel Z. Thomas and John Germain/Mike Maggio placed second. Chris Berthiaume/Chris Ford and Marilyn Hinds/Sue Fechner won third place, and Bob Bertoia/Bruce Yoshida and Connie Norman/Carrie Yoshida finished in fourth.

Greg Miller won the chipping contest, with a 2-foot from pin win.

Myron Vogt was also honored during the benefit.

Vogt, the co-chair for the past eight years, recently moved to Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, Valeria, due to health issues. Organizers of the benefit said not only was Vogt the spirit and motivator of the Bluebills, he was instrumental in making the Dove House Golf Tournament the success it is today. His wife also supported Bluebill programs and the Dove House benefit with her graphic designs and printing talents.

A plaque was presented to the Vogts in appreciation for all of the time and energy they put in to make the tournament so popular, and Jay Gilmour accepted the plaque for the couple in their honor and recounted how he met the Vogts when he was president of Boeing Japan when Vogt was the regional director. When Gilmour moved to Port Ludlow and wanted to check out the woodworking shop at the Bay Club, he was told he had to see Vogt first.
