More than eighty-six golfers played in our 2022 Swinging for Scholarships Golf Tournament held at Beau Chene Golf Club in Mandeville. First place went to the foursome from Gulf States Real Estate Services—Mike Saucier, Matthew Saucier, Ken Looper and Gareth Reardon. Kyle Lickenbrock with OnPath Federal Credit Union won the Longest Drive competition sponsored by Parish President Cooper; Kirt Schuermann with General Informatics won the Longest Drive competition sponsored by Carver Darden; Chuck Barras with Silver Slipper Casino Hotel won the Closest-to-the-Hole competition sponsored by Patriot Title; and Paul Eyster with Silver Slipper Casino Hotel won the Closest-to-the-Case competition sponsored by Digital Engineering.

The tournament raised money for the Chamber’s Scholarship Fund. Four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to St. Tammany high school seniors planning to attend a Louisiana college.

“Our scholarship fund will award four scholarships this year thanks to the golfers and sponsors participating in our annual golf tournament,” said St. Tammany Chamber CEO Lacey Osborne adding that many qualified scholarship applications have been received and the four recipients will be announced soon.

Special thanks go to General Informatics as the tournament’s Masters Sponsor and to First Horizon as the tournament’s Ace Sponsor, as well as to sponsors Fidelity Bank/NOLA Leading Group; OnPath Federal Credit Union, Slidell Memorial Hospital, Blue Williams Attorneys, Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company, Northshore Toyota, Our Lady of the Lake Physicians Group, Red River Bank, Silver Slipper Casino Hotel and Textron Systems.
