Northport — Beautiful early-fall weather and plenty of sweet swings and putts were the norm during the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce's golf tournament on Friday afternoon, Oct. 3 at the Northport Golf Club.

The course was gorgeous with the hills and leaves changing color. Those who participated had so much fun that the plan is to hold the tourney again next year.

This year's event included 12 teams and 48 golfers.

Finishing first was Alan's Towing, which included Alan Blood, Cody Keithan, Steve Stanford and Joey Holmes.

Second place was earned by Holmes Greenhouse, with Allen Holmes, Terry Whitney, Larry Quinn and Phil Bowen.

Third was taken by Waldo County General Hospital, with Dan Bennett, Cody Ward, Chad Place and Mark Hall

The last-place team was Fore Ladies or Divas, who included Jayne Giles, Michelle Morrow, Annie Pickford and Janis Stone.

Closest to the pins were won by Larry Quinn, Bill Pickford, Mike Perry and Alan Blood.

The longest drives were hit by Valery Doody and Alan Blood

Chamber officials thanked corporate sponsors Camden Real Estate, Courier Publications/The Republican Journal and Allen Insurance and Financial.

Proceeds from the golf event support chamber programs and increase the advertising presence of Belfast and Waldo County in Maine Invites You, the official state travel planner. Maine is one of the premier 'drive-to' locations in the US, with more than 26 million potential visitors within an easy day's drive of the borders.
