The Carl and Pearl Hagel Golf Tournament was held at Mountain Aire Golf Club last Saturday with over one hundred golfers coming out to enjoy a day of perfect weather while honoring the memory of Carl and Pearl Hagel. The Hagels purchased the nine-hole golf course in 1971 and eventually expanded that to 18 holes. Carl passed away in 1994, 15 years before his Pearl passed away in 2009.
The event also allowed for money to be raised in support of the Ashe Free Medical Clinic, which provides free medical care to the residents of Ashe County who cannot afford medical care.
The low score of the day was a 53, fired by the team of Keith Farmer, Tim Badger, Jason Brown and Wrenn Johnson. The amazing round included two eagles, 15 birdies and only one par in the eight holes of captain’s choice play. The low net score was shot by Trey Scott, David Miller, Beverly Ward and Adam Ward. They had a terrific round of 55, less their team handicap of 11 to net a 44. The winners won two plaques and rounds of golf contributed by many of the area golf courses.

The clinic would like to thank many of the area golf courses as well, who contributed rounds of golf to be used as prizes.
