9th Annual Golf Tourney Draws More than 100 Golfers to Raise Funds


JEREMY RANCH, UTAH (September 12, 2006) — In their very popular and ever-growing annual golf tournament held in late August to benefit the National Ability Center in Park City, Jeremy Golf and Country Club and Murray-based Hamlet Companies raised more than $22,000 for the Center, one of the nation’s leading providers of sports and recreational activities for people with disabilities.

More than 100 golfers representing Utah’s building and real estate marketing industries, joined in this 9th annual event where the uncontested motto was, “the more your pay, the better you play!” Players were encouraged to make up for free green fees, carts and prizes donated by Jeremy, and a free dinner and event coordination by The Hamlet Companies, through giving generously to the Center in buying game mulligans, contest mulligans, feet of string  (to make up for short shots), sand trap ‘outs’, and a marshmallow ‘out’ – escaping the softest, shortest drive on the course.

“This has truly grown into one of the most-enjoyable and worthy golf tournaments we annually host at Jeremy,” said Club pro, Tom Costello.  “It is always a pleasure to do this good work for the National Ability Center and its executive director, Meeche White, and to join forces with Michael Brodsky and his wonderful team at The Hamlet Companies.”

Brodsky echoed Costello’s sentiments. “The express purpose of this tournament is to have a great deal of fun while giving generously to support the excellent work of the National Ability Center,” said Brodsky. “This tournament began nine years ago as a thank you to our employees and vendors, and has purposefully grown into a fundraising event that benefits thousands of individuals served by the Center throughout the year. It is our privilege to support this invaluable organization. ”

Meeche White, executive director of the National Ability Center, notes that this event is a fun and important fundraiser for the Center. “Mike and Susan Brodsky and The Hamlet Companies have been an indispensable friend and support to the National Ability Center for the past 17 years,” said White. “The golf tournament not only generates important funding for the Center but also helps to spread awareness about our mission. We greatly appreciate the time, effort and contributions of both The Hamlet Companies and Jeremy Golf and Country Club in making this event possible.”

About Jeremy Ranch

Opened in 1981, this Arnold Palmer-designed course rated at 72.9, is one of the most-challenging and beautiful courses in Utah. The Jeremy, as it is known to club members and guests, is located along the high foothills of the Wasatch Mountains and bordered by the stunning East Canyon Creek on the northwest. Its fairways are dressed in pine, aspen trees and low brush, and almost all are bunkered. Known as a true champion course, its lush bent grass greens are slightly larger than average in size, but challenge golfers with diabolically placed bunkers.
