This year’s event, brought to you by presenting sponsor Haisten McCullough Funeral Home for the second year in a row, goes off in a shotgun start at 12 noon and also includes a lunch provided by Chick-fil-A and Truett’s in addition to heavy post-round hors d’oeuvre at the clubhouse where awards and door prizes will be handed out.
Awards include $100 pro shop gift certificate per player to the winning team, $75 pro shop gift certificate per player to the runner-ups and $50 pro shop gift certificate per player to the third-place team in addition to awards for longest drive and closest to the pin — with a chance to win a car on one of the holes.
