The format is captain’s choice — four-player scramble. Single, double or trio golfers will be placed on a four-person team.

Prizes include a new car from Waynesville Automotive for a hole in one on a designated hole. There will cash prizes for the first, second and third place teams. Other prizes will be awarded for longest drive men/women and closest to pin men/women.

Golfers may buy tickets for mulligans, a “string” stroke saver, par 3 inside circle and red tees.

The tourney entry fee includes green gees, carts, tee gift bag and the cookout, which includes spouse. Four-player teams are $70 per player or $280 per team.

In addition to the golf fun, tickets will be available for a drawing of big prizes including a $200 Visa gift card, dinner for two at Sid’s on Main in Canton, a carved wooden bear by Jake Marzullo, a framed print by artist T. Pennington, a half-day fly fishing trip from Rex Wilson and teeth whitening by Eric Morrison, DDS.
