25th Annual Leon Truman Golf Classic at Poland Spring Resort

25th Annual Leon Truman Golf Classic at Poland Spring Resort

Oxford Hills - The Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce recently held the 25th Annual Leon Truman Golf Classic at Poland Spring Resort. Sponsored by Signature Sponsor Norway Savings Bank, the event is the Chamber's largest fundraiser, and honors the tournament's founder and long-time supporter, Leon Truman.

A field of 120 registered golfers competed for prizes ranging from golf packages and cash, to a 4-wheel drive Kawasaki Teryx provided by JEM Motorsports. While no one sunk a hole-in-one to win the Teryx, thousands of dollars in other prizes went to golfers in a variety of competitions and contests. While waiting for early morning showers to clear, golfers and volunteers enjoyed a continental breakfast provided by Dunkin' Donuts and Hannaford.

Bragging rights as the overall winner of the tournament, as well as $300 cash and the tournament's traveling trophy, went to the Northeast Bank team with a low gross score of 57.
