Annual StJB Golf Classic


The annual St. John the Baptist Golf Classic was a record-setting success, raising more than $16,000 for St. John the Baptist school.

(L-R): Joel Makovicka, supporter of the tournament; Fr. Sean Timmerman, StJB chief administrative officer; and Mike Vaughn, golf tournament chairman.

One hundred and five golfers turned out to participate in the four-person scramble on August 6th at Bay Bills Golf Course in Plattsmouth. A steak dinner and raffle drawings followed the tournament at St. John the Baptist school.

“While the event is always about fun and fellowship, it’s also about raising awareness and funds to support Catholic education in our community,” said Mike Vaughn, chairman of the tournament and Knights of Columbus #1966 council member.

The Knights of Columbus #1966 in Plattsmouth hosts the tournament every year. In 2018 the first golf tournament was held, and since that time the event continues to grow in popularity, excitement and support every year.

“This event would not be possible without the great turnout of golfers, dinner attendees, and the generous support from volunteers, donors and our sponsors,” added Mike.
