Paul Garner won his second consecutive Rotary Charity Golf Tournament on Friday at the Demopolis Country Club.

The Demopolis Rotary Club hosts the tournament every year, and this year, the club raised $11,282.70. Half of the proceeds go to Camp ASCCA, and half go to local charities.

Jay Reynolds of the Demopolis Rotary Club said they had 100 golfers come out for the tournament. Forty of them were in the four-ball competition, and 60 were in the scramble competition.

“We were lucky to get any golf in, the way the weather was,” he said, “but we had a great turnout and raised a lot of money for charity.”

On Thursday, May 2, there was a putting competition that Joe Parr won in the sixth round. He donated his $690 in winnings back to the club.

The money raised this year was the most in the 40 years of the tournament.
