Fifty-five golfers from the Santa Clarita Valley spent a warm spring day on the fairways at Robinson Ranch Golf Course on Monday, taking part in the fourth annual Zonta Golf Tournament.

The tournament is a major fundraiser which helps support the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley and the club's local and international programs to improve the status of women.

Golfers Paula Hoffman and Mike Thrasher won Closest to the Pin contests, one of several on-course contests open to players who purchased the Super Ticket package before teeing off. Longest Drive prizes went to Darleen Conner and Chris Mulbrecht.

The "best ball" format of the tournament allowed teams to play from the best shot a team member produced at each step of the game, making for some satisfyingly low scores.

The winning men's team from John Heys Plumbing turned in a combined score of 53 for the 18 holes, allowing players John Heys, Bill Tilley, Chris Mulbrecht and Nick Margis to claim the overall low score prize. Members of the winning mixed team were John Hoffman, Paula Hoffman, Richard Herron and Jerry Miller.

Four Super Ticket players were chosen at random to take part in a post-game shootout for a $100,000 cash prize.

Players Jerry Miller, Jim Blazer, Bill Tilley and David Van Orden teed up at the course's picturesque 18th hole for their attempt at a hole-in-one as players gathered on the clubhouse balcony to cheer and moan as each shot made its way toward the pin or went astray.

Mexican resort vacations were awarded to Tom Schmidt and John Perkins, who came up with tied low scores of 70 in a scratch-off game on their Super Tickets.

A total of 14 teams enjoyed the golf outing, ending in an awards dinner with live auction.

Meta and Mann served as title sponsor of the tournament.
