St. Davids Golf Club Hosts
Buddy Aiken and Scott Deakins of St. Davids Golf Club once again played
the club’s 90-Hole Challenge, benefitting the Trust, on June 4. Aiken, a
JWP Trustee, and Deakins, St. David’s JWP Club Director, played one full
round of straight alternate shot from each of the course’s five sets of tees.
The day took 11 hours to complete and the duo raised more than $12,000
for the Platt while recording a final gross score of 375. Said Deakins, “As a
club, we are very proud of our excellent caddie program and this event has
really helped raise awareness across the membership of the important role
that the Platt Scholarship Trust plays in sustaining our strong program.”
Displaying St. Davids’ 90-Hole Challenge in scorecards are (l to r): Buddy Aiken, Anna Aiken,
Cynthia Aiken and Scott Deakins.
