For over 20 years, Detroit Lakes’ Steve Sundby enjoyed the Pine to Palm Golf Tournament as a volunteer, running the ball spotter crew throughout the week.


For his efforts, Sundby was awarded the Rutledge Award in 2008, which honors those who have put in longevity, promotion, service and sportsmanship.

After retiring his Pine to Palm duties three years ago, Sundby was able to experience the tournament from the other side as a player and it’s paying dividends.
