Stanley Hole Golf Tournament raises $25,000 for the CREW Trust
Named in honor of engineer, environmentalist and avid golfer Stanley Hole, the annual golf tournament is one of two major fundraisers that supports CREW Land & Water Trust. Hole co-founded the engineering firm Hole Montes in 1959 and was a founding member of CREW Trust's Board of Trustees, helping establish the nonprofit in 1989.
Today, Hole Montes is the region's leading engineering, surveying and planning company with a focus on water resource management, including the treatment of stormwater and wastewater, flood control and restoration tools, and innovative approaches to assess, protect and restore water bodies. Beyond its sponsorship of the Stanley Hole Golf Tournament, Hole Montes maintains a close connection with CREW Land & Water Trust through former CEO and Board Chairman Thomas M. Taylor serving on the nonprofit's board of trustees.
The CREW Land & Water Trust formed to coordinate the land acquisition, land management and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. The nonprofit partners with the South Florida Water Management District, Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, Conservation Collier and Conservation 20/20 in Lee County. CREW lands help recharge groundwater for the region's drinking water supply, offer natural flood protection, purify water, provide habitat for wildlife and offer a beautiful space for public recreation.
This year's tournament, held Oct. 29 at Old Corkscrew Golf Club in Estero, drew 136 participants who enjoyed a round of championship golf, lunch, hors d'oeuvres and an awards party. The winning foursome was Clarke Construction Group's Chris Clarke, Chocky Warriner, Dylan Foster and Matt Clem. Sponsors for the golf tournament included:
