Good things often happen to good people and that seems to have been the case at the 4th Annual Craig Stadler and Friends Charity Golf Tournament benefiting Open Fairways. Shawn Agresto of Boulder and Steve Durris of Denver both shot a hole-in-one at Tuesdays event held at Grand Elk Ranch & Club. According to witnesses, the prize-winning shots happened within approximately two minutes of each other the roar of the crowd on hole No. 2 was quickly followed by excited screaming on hole No. 8. Professional golfing legend Craig Stadler and friends give their time each year to this worthy cause, giving golf enthusiasts the opportunity to play golf with the 13-time tournament winner while benefiting Open Fairways, a Colorado based nonprofit dedicated to helping at-risk and underprivileged youth through golf.Mr. Stadler and Grand Elk generously donate the course and their time to this great event, said Dana Irwin, Development Officer with Open Fairways. Mr. Stadler spends his day out on the course playing with the participants and always leaves a smile on the players faces. The two winners had very big smiles on their faces. Mr. Agresto will be driving a brand new Ford SUV home and Mr. Durris will be booking the free cruise he won. This is the fourth year for this event and every year it gets better said Irwin. I think giving the sponsors the opportunity to play in such a unique event with Mr. Stadler is what has made this event the success it has become.For more information about Open Fairways, visit or call 303-330-1221.
