Golf enthusiasts and Pasco-Hernando Community College supporters recently teed up for the fourth annual Pasco-Hernando Community College Foundation golf tournament.

Players, led by presenting sponsor Borrell Electric Co. and Skanska USA Building, spent the day on the links at the Black Diamond Quarry Course in Citrus County, raising more than $37,000 for the foundation.

The first-place gross team from Tampa Electric Co. included Jimmy Adcock, Joe Cobb, Keith Martin and John Semeraro.

First-place net trophies went to Daniel Abou-Jaoude, Ken Kunde, Frank D'Alessio and Greg Ritter representing Borrell Electric Co.

Paul Gassen of Sunrise Landscaping won the putting contest; Zach Maraicher of Cox Fire Protection and Debra Bauman from Skanska USA Building won the closest-to-the-pin awards. PHCC president Katherine Johnson and Joe Cobb from Tampa Electric took home the prizes for the longest drive.

Following play, the sponsors were recognized at an awards banquet. All proceeds are dedicated to student scholarships, academic and athletic programs, libraries and other needed PHCC initiatives.
