Women’s Western Slope Triple Play tournament raises $39,000 to help victims of domestic violence
By Gary Baines – 08/15/2019
The Western Slope Triple Play, a three-day women’s golf tournament held at three different courses late last month, raised $39,000 for Hilltop’s Latimer House, a Grand Junction-based facility that helps people affected by domestic violence.
The amount is about twice what is the typical total raised annually by the Triple Play.
This year’s tournament took place July 26-28, with Tiara Rado Golf Course in Grand Junction hosting the first round, The Club at Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction the second and Adobe Creek National Golf Course in Fruita the third.
This summer’s tournament drew 130 players — from the region as well as the state — which is about 30 more than the norm. And the event’s silent auction took in $13,000, almost three times as much as in 2018.
Colorado Golf Hall of Famer Kim Eaton won the title in the championship flight for the second straight year, this time with a 216 total for the three rounds.
