The Bill Burke Memorial Annual Golf Outing was held on Friday, September 10, 2021 at Riverbank Golf Club in South Lyon, MI.
It was our fourth year at Riverbank where the owner and his entire staff do an amazing job of hosting our event. They have worked doubly hard to do everything possible to keep us all safe during the pandemic. Riverbank is friendly, professional and just a pleasure to work with. We have reserved Riverbank again for Friday, September 9, 2022.
We had the largest group, 75 golfers, in the recent history of our outing and it was excellent to see everyone! The group started with breakfast, gift bags, 18 holes of golf, finishing with a full delicious dinner with prizes for winners and door prizes for all. Our hole sponsors are:
Merrill, Greg Huffer and Brian Maxson, 5 holes and Presenting Sponsors
BCBSM Retiree Association, 5 holes
Direct Financial, Returning Sponsor, 3 holes
Total Technology Management, Tom Burzynski, 2 holes
Dean Sellers Ford, 1 hole
Pat Leonhard, Star Lincoln, 1 hole
Ruby Ribbon, Janice Cantelon, 1 hole
Kathy Elston, 1 hole
These sponsors participation helps us keep the cost of the outing as low as possible and the additional sponsorship of our RA allowed us to upgrade the door prizes this year which was recognized and appreciated by the golfers.
In the Men’s category, two teams tied for 1st place at 64, with the first team of Bill Smith, Kim Sorget, Mike Cartier and Kirk Vogelei and the second team Jim Laderman, Bob Downing, Bob Remick and Fred Pelle.
In the Women’s category, the winning team with a 68 was Toni Clark, Jeanne Carlson, Connie Puscas and Gayle Laveroni.
In the Mixed team category, winners with a 63, were Judy McChester Neff, Diana Glaab, Chris Nordin and Ed Kulczycki.

We hope to see even more golfers at our next outing on September 9, 2022!
