Annual Golf Benefit
Volunteer Extraordinaire Walloon Lake CC Happy Golfers
The 17th Camp Daggett Golf Benefit was held on June 10th at the Walloon Lake Country Club. It was a beautiful day and a very successful event! First, we must thank all of our wonderful sponsors and supporters who made this possible. Chief amount them was our Title Sponsor, David and Linda Johnson. A big thank you also goes to Ron and Cathy Scriven who are our hosts for this event at the Walloon Lake Country Club. Thanks also goes to Ralph and Patti Miesel and Terry and Laurie Marrs who help get the invitations out to participants and provide us with advise and support throughout the year in planning for the event.
Camp Daggett receives tremendous support for this event from the community and our many neighbors around Walloon Lake! Here is a list of our sponsors, click on this link to see all of them:

We want to also thank all of our wonderful volunteers that help with this event. Many come back every year to help because they love the event and all the folks who participate.
We could not do this event without the great help from the Walloon Lake Country Club. A big thank you goes to all of the staff. Thank you to Harry Dixon, the General Manager, Mark Neill, Executive Chef and the kitchen help, Jacob Wilhelm, the Club House Manager, Jason George, Head Golf Professional and his staff, Pete Kelbel, Director of Golf and Scott Pulaski, Grounds Superintendent.
We still have some pledges coming in, but the net revenue from this event will be almost the same as in 2019 when we did not have all the challenges due to COVID 19. We had to scale back some things and the cost of some things went up. It was wonderful to see everyone back this year after being unable to have the event in 2020! THANK YOU EVERYONE!!
SAVE THE DATE FOR 2022!! JUNE 9, 2022
