LAKE JUNALUSKA Calling golfers of all ages. Plan now to compete in the first Friends of the Lake Golf Tournament at 1 p.m. Monday, July 1, at Lake Junaluska Golf Course.

The cost is $200 per team of four ($50 per individual) and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, gift bag, door prizes and a post tournament meal. A portion of the registration fee will be tax deductible. Individual or business sponsorships are available from $100 to $1,000.


Proceeds from the tournament will go to support and maintain recreational opportunities at the lake, said Melissa Aldridge, annual fund coordinator at Lake Junaluska.


“The Friends of the Lake is a new program this year that was started to raise funds to support the walking trail as well as the maintenance of other recreational opportunities we have here,” Aldridge said. “We wanted to do two special fund-raising events annually, one being a 5K, which we held over Easter weekend, and the other a golf tournament. We’re hoping the community will come out and support us this way so we can continue to provide our community with these wonderful recreational opportunities.”


The Lake Junaluska Golf Course opened in 1919 as a nine-hole course, expanding to an 18-hole, par 68 course in 1993, said Rick Constance, golf course manager. A new clubhouse opened five years ago.

Registration forms and sponsorship information are available at, or by calling Aldridge at 454.6680.
