Captain’s tournament tees off again to boost Triple C

The Captain Theo Bodden Memorial Golf Tournament has quickly become a popular event for Cayman’s golfing community and Home Gas is again the 2014 title sponsor of the tournament this Friday.

Now in its third year, this tournament is a fund-raiser for Triple C School. Proceeds raised at will go towards the school’s classroom modulars project.

Bodden Holdings, the parent company of Home Gas, has been involved at various sponsorship levels since its inception. The namesake of the tournament and founder of Bodden Holdings, Captain Theo Bodden, was also one of the founders of Triple C School.

Mable Richardson, Triple C’s principal, said, “The tournament will tee off at the North Sound Golf Club on Friday Feb. 7, beginning at 1 p.m. Entry fees are $600 for a team of four or $150 per individual.

“Entry fees allow participants to compete for some excellent prizes in a putt-for-cash competition, the hole-in-one competition and a longest drive contest.”

Two vehicles are on offer in the hole-in-one competition – a 2014 Toyota T86 from Vampt Motors and 2014 Kia from GT Automotive.

The tournament is a four-person scramble accommodating up to 72 players in 18 teams. It is open to the public and all are encouraged to enter. Companies and individuals can sponsor holes with two types of sponsorship package available.

Gregg Radley, general manager of Home Gas, said, “We believe it is important to give back to the community and what better way than to enjoy an afternoon of golf while raising funds for Triple C School?

“As Captain Bodden was a founder of both Bodden Holdings and Triple C, it gives us great pride to help raise funds to support their legacy and many worthy programs.”
