"We’re looking for 15 teams," Vinson said last week. "We’ve never had that many, but we set our goal high because the money we raise is used for the Chamber’s scholarship fund."
The four person scramble will take place this year at Boots Randolph Golf Course at Lake Barkley and the entry fee has been set at $35 per golfer. Area golfers are asked to bring their own teams composed of an A, B, C, and D player.
For the purpose of the event, A players must have a handicap of seven and below; a B player between eight and 15; a C player between 16-22 and a D player 23 and above.
Teams can be composed of either men or women golfers with the edge going to the ladies and seniors who will have the advantage of tee boxes closer to the hole. Seniors are considered those golfers over the age of 62.
Vinson said he is presently soliciting items to be included in a goodie bag for golfers and welcomed any contributions from area businesses. "We’d be delighted if some of the local businesses would want to donate some things to give the golfers, "he said. "Also, anyone who wanted to contribute some prizes for the winning golfers would be appreciated."
He suggested that some area restaurants might contribute certificates for dinners or businesses may want to give certificates for merchandise.
"Any donations would be appreciated," he said. "They can call me at the funeral home (Goodwin, 522-6676) or the chamber office (522-3892)."
Vinson said a block of tee times have been set aside for the Sunday afternoon event and those who are entered should contact the course for a tee time and cart reservation. The cost for tee time and cart rental is $36.66 per player, according to a course spokesman.
Those golfers who register early will have their choice of the tee times which begin at 12:30 p.m. and continue until 2 p.m.
Golfers will play 18 holes in the event and lunch will be served to participants.
