The 18th annual Bedrock Classic Golf Tournament to benefit the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office’s Project SAFE was held Friday with 94 players participating.

“We had 25 teams and a beautiful day for golf,” said Lieutenant Stephen Crook, who heads up the tournament for the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

Money raised from the tournament goes toward helping the kids of Coweta County through the “Students Are For Education” program.

SAFE focuses on teaching students against drugs and violence. The 12-week program covers topics ranging from handling stress to self-esteem, bullying, Internet safety and avoiding drugs. The classes are taught in one-hour segments to fifth graders, and officers also visit Pre-K through fourth grade students for talks on similar topics.

“All money raised from the Bedrock Classic goes back to the kids of Coweta County,” Crook said. “None of the money goes toward salaries or anything else, it all gets funded to help us buy items for the Project SAFE program… We want to thank the community for their continued support of this vital program.”

First place for the First Flight went to the team of Pick Parks, Joe Crain, Craig Ketelsen, and Kermit Perry. First place in Second Flight went to Dave LeClair, Bill Milling, Jim Swieringa and Clint Smith. The team from Buffalo Rock won first in the Third Flight.
