Last year, the event broke its fundraising record with more than $6,500 raised. Since the tournament’s inception, more than $44,000 has been raised for different charities. Other beneficiaries have included the American Cancer Society and Bert’s Big Adventure.
The annual tournament is open to the public, and all skill levels are welcome. The cost to participate is $225 per player for the competition, with cart, greens fees, food and beverages included.
