Mother Nature produced a perfect morning for the 2023 edition of CFFC’s Living with CF Golf Tournament. 32 players teed off on Saturday, September 9th for nine holes of scramble golf. We enjoyed renewing our friendship with five teams and warmly welcomed three new foursomes.
The resulting scores determined the prize winners, but the real winners are the local CF community who will benefit from the moneys raised through entry fees, sponsorships and donations.

The primary objective of the Living with CFFC Golf Tournament is to raise money to finance CFFC’s programs. The secondary objective is to have fun. With the net proceeds (over $2,700) and the smiles all around, we can say “Mission Accomplished” on both counts.
Of course, there is a third objective: seeing who can complete the round with the lowest score. At our tournament, the scores are used to determine the order in which the players visit the prize table to pick their reward. The teams, their rank and score are presented in the gallery below. Additional prizes were awarded to Maddie Skavienski, Steve Scofield and John Toomey for getting closest to the pin on holes 2, 4 and 9, respectively.
Successful events don’t just happen. Co-chairs Greg Smith and Tom Skavienski extend hearty “thank yous” to everyone who contributed to the effort. The most visable helpers were Karly Schuhart (CFFC president), Jane Sullivan, Jackie Goldberger and Leisha Cuddihy who cruised around the course taking pictures, managing the signs and generally cheering on the golfers.
We’re also grateful that Southern Meadows Golf Club hosted our event for the tenth time. Club pro Mike Clawson served as official scorer and head caterer. Rick Clawson did double duty as head groundskeeper and grill master. In addition to helping with lunch preparation, Molly Quirk’s touch could be seen in the flower beds that have been added around the course. Bruce Bethmann, who assists with the mowing, set up the carts for the tournament and helped serve lunch. Their care gave us a pleasant environment, good golfing conditions and an tasty meal.
Last, but certainly not least, we express our gratitude to the generous sponsors who donated prizes or purchased hole sponsorships. Most of these businesses and individuals were repeat supporters and we welcomed four new boosters.
One final thank you to the golfers who participated in our tournament. We look forward to seeing you all again next year. If you haven’t yet experienced our tournament, please plan on joining us next year. To avoid the “my calendar is full” syndrome, pencil in September 7, 2024 for the Living with CF Golf Tournament.
