Golf scramble benefits future linemen
River's Edge Golf Course in North Platte
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Beautiful weather accompanied a great cause at the River’s Edge Golf Course in North Platte on Friday. There were 27 three-man teams of golfers, all associated during their working hours with keeping our lights on.
Public power district employees, city and village employees, vendors, and distributors were at the course to support the annual Linemen’s Golf Scramble. The support from golfers through giveaways and donations provide scholarships to future linemen.
In 2019 the scramble raised enough money for five $500 scholarships to students attending linemen’s school. Organizer Brian Winfield figures 2020 was successful enough that maybe seven or eight scholarships will be available this round.
