Rotary golf outing raises $10,000

The Batavia Rotary Club held its first golf outing July 17.

Held at the Stonelick Hills Golf Course, the golf outing raised $10,000.

“The funds raised today will go to Rotary International and many other charitable organizations, chiefly the YMCA and the Clermont County Homeless Shelters,” said Batavia Rotary Club President Daren Donohoo. “This is the first major fund-raising event that I have helped to organize as president. We have high hopes that this will only be the first year of many more golf outings to come.”

More than 150 golfers and volunteers attended the event.

“We are more than pleased with the turnout,” said Rotary Club Treasurer and Batavia resident Debbie Henize. The Stonelick Hills Golf Course management has been wonderful and the course itself is amazing.”

Built in 2004, the Stonelick Hills Golf Course is an 18-hole, 7,100 yard golf course with a 136 degree slope rating and it is completely surrounded by wooded, forested natural beauty.

“We were happy to be the host course for the Rotary Club’s first golf outing,” said Stonelick Hills General Manager Mike Sowards. “We were glad to help contribute to its success.”
