The weekend wind and rain couldn’t keep the sun – or the avid golfers – from coming out for the Port Bureau’s sold out 7th Annual Captain’s Cup Golf Tournament hosted on November 2, 2015. The mild, sunny weather prevailed as the four-player shambles teed-off on BraeBurn Country Club’s beautiful, if slightly soggy, rolling green. The BraeBurn course lived up to its well-earned reputation as a superior place to play as teams competed throughout the afternoon. Presenting Sponsor BB&T Branch Banking and Trust Company sponsored a special gift for all of the golfers – Yeti coolers!

Alliant won first place gross score with players Tim Studdert, Tara Battles, Jason Ellis, and Sean Wagner. Alliant’s commemorative plaque will be featured in the Port Bureau’s offices until the 2016 winner claims the spot. First place net went to the Rickmers-Linie team of Bill Wode, Jode Shupe, Rob Silsbee, and Dave Morgan.

Additional team wins went to:
• Second place gross: Briggs & Veselka Co. (Jamie Sylvester, Andy Kuntz, Cliff Walston, and Kevin Harris)
• Second place net: Danner’s Inc. (Brad Maxcey, Jeremy Rose, Doug Maxcey, and Mark Pippen)
• Third place net: Coating Systems & Supply (Jarret Phillips, Jeff Speck, Craig Lagrone, and John Ravenberg)

The Captain’s Cup tournament featured several contests for closest-to-the-pin, hole-in-one, and longest drive. While capturing the $10,000 hole-in-one prize remained elusive, Rickmer-Linie’s Jode Shupe came just a foot away. The longest drive was claimed by Jeremy Rose and closest-to-the-pin winners were Rick Bates, Cliff Walston, and Bob McHugh.
The Port Bureau extends hearty congratulations to the Captain’s Cup winners and thanks all the players for a great day of sport. In addition to our generous sponsors, we would also like to thank the Golf Committee for their hard work: Tim Studdert (Shamrock Marine), Dallas Hall (BB&T Branch Banking and Trust Company), Brad Maxcey (Danner’s Inc.), and Jamie Sylvester (Briggs & Veselka Co.).

The Captain’s Cup has sold out quickly every year. If you or your company are interested in participating in the 2016 tournament, please send an email to to receive updates.
