The annual Norm Hansen Memorial Golf
on June 23, 2018 in conjunction with the Syracuse Heritage Days.
Norm Hansen was a life-long resident of Syracuse. Norm frequently played golf at the Glen Eagle Golf Course with family and friends. Two of the things that Norm loved most were playing golf and helping others. To honor his memory, his five sons partnered with Glen Eagle Golf Course, Mike McBride, and Syracuse City to organize this annual commemorative tournament. RC Willey of Syracuse, along with many other local businesses, provided generous raffle prizes. The funds generated from this tournament are used to provide donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and to a Syracuse High School senior student who has excelled as a member of the Syracuse High School Golf Team.
This year enough funds were raised to donate $3000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and to award Annie Lyons, a senior on the Syracuse High Girls’ Golf Team, $2000 to help her continue her education at BYU-Hawaii.
This is the fourth year for the tournament. Each tournament has been well attended, with 120 golfers participating this year.
As a golfer entering the tournament, each player received several gifts, generously donated by RC Willey, in honor of Norm and Faye Hansen. A raffle provides participants a chance to receive a grand prize provided by RC Willey of Syracuse and many other outstanding prizes provided by local merchants and businesses.
Prize money is given for the first, second, and third place teams. Each player receives a free lunch in the Glen Eagle clubhouse, a golf towel, and goody bags containing golf balls, tees, and candy.
The Hansen Family considers it an honor to both recognize and celebrate their father and grandfather, Norm, and to additionally help create an event that brings people together at the beautiful Glen Eagle Golf Course in the great city of Syracuse, Utah.
