Area golfers will have the chance to putt, drive and chip while raising money to help area students continue their education.
The Greenwood and White River Rotary clubs will conduct their annual golf outing at 12:30 p.m. May 26. The outing will be at Dye’s Walk Country Club, and proceeds will go toward the clubs’ scholarship funds.
Chris Rosser, a member of the golf committee for the Greenwood Rotary Club, explained what to know leading up to the fundraiser.
For a good cause
The aim of the outing is to provide financial assistance to college-bound and vocational technology students in Greenwood, Center Grove and Clark Pleasant schools, Rosser said. The clubs have given more than $100,000 since they started the scholarship fund.
Hit the mark
Golfers can participate in contests in addition to the tournament itself, including prizes for longest putt, closest to the pin and the chance to win a car with a hole-in-one, Rosser said.
The tournament format will be a Florida scramble. The entire foursome plays from the ball of whatever member had the best shot that stroke. The twist is that whichever player had that best shot has to sit out the next one, Rosser said.
The $90 registration fee includes greens fees, cart, lunch and dinner, as well as free goodies such as balls, tees and other golf apparel.
Anyone can play
The fundraiser is open to the public, offering many people an opportunity to play Dye’s Walk even if they’re not members.
