Oswego Industries raised a net profit of $6,977 at its seventh annual Golf Open June 23 at Battle Island Golf Course in Fulton.

Funds raised will benefit rehabilitation programs at Oswego Industries, Inc., which has been providing services to individuals with disabilities in Oswego County since 1968.

Players enjoyed themselves on the beautiful Saturday morning and tested themselves at the event’s signature “Disability Hole” challenge.

This year’s challenge required players to wear a blindfold while teeing off on the first hole.

The contest was a playful reminder of the condition of lacking visual perception due to physiological or neurological factors that face many Oswego County citizens every day.

Each year, players at the Disability Hole are required to tee off while simulating a disability. The challenge changes each year and is a closely guarded secret up until the day of the tournament.

The winner for Longest Drive on the Disability Hole for women was Susan Bray and for men was Alan Caster.

The winning team for this year’s tournament was “The Big Dipper,” captained by Shirley Baker. The Par 3 Poker prize was won by the Oswego Industries team, captained by Larry Steinburg.

Other contest winners included Closest to the Pin contest winners Corrine MacEwen and Bill Viscome and Longest Drive winners Kelly Wells and Ben Savory.
