MADISON — The Ninth Annual Golf and Tennis Challenge was held at Reynolds Plantation on October 5, 2012. This exiting event planned for tennis and golf enthusiasts demonstrates their combined skills by playing both sports on the same day. Even if you have to dust off those clubs or that racket, this annual event is one of the most popular of the year. Over the weekend, 12 participants competed in four rounds of six tennis games round robin at the awarding-winning tennis facilities at Reynolds Plantation, then golfed at The Oconee Course in the Stableford format. There was a tie for first with Connie Cline and Peter Curtis, third place went to Guy Witte and Joan Eubanks finished fourth in the challenge. Players were thanked for their participation by receiving complimentary lunch served and prepared by the Reynolds Plantation staff. With beautiful weather and steady competition throughout, the challenge proved to be an exciting event that is certain to become a long-standing tradition for tennis and golf enthusiasts.
Dave Neuhart, director of tennis at Reynolds Plantation, touches on the success of the day: “This is one of our most popular events of the year. It always provides the important big four F’s needed in every event: Fitness, Fun, Food and Friendship. Everyone went home very pleased after spending the day with friends.”
