Labor Day golf at Red Fox Country Club

Published 5:34 pm Friday, September 16, 2011

­For decades, the Labor Day golf event at Red Fox was the Kohlbry Cup competition, which, in effect, became the club’s “Couples Championship.”
This year was a bit different. While Trudy Kohlbry continued the tradition long after her husband, Robert, died, her passing marked the end of this popular event.
However, a similar event was scheduled for Labor Day, 2011, but it ended up being rescheduled. Dr. Bob Conrad, president of the Red Fox Men’s Golf Association, who, in the absence of a golf professional, has taken some of golf-planning duties, studied the weather report and moved the event forward to Sunday, Sept. 4, a clear day.
The event was the best net ball in twosomes (couples). The winners were Lynette and Dr. Bob Conrad. Helen and Fred Ellis placed second followed by Betty and Jay Burdue. The participants then retired to the Conrad home for a cookout.
