The Barbour County Chamber of Commerce added cash prizes to its array of awards during the Chamber’s Annual Golf Tournament to be held Friday, May 20th, at the Barbour Country Club.
All proceeds from the annual Charity Golf Scramble go to organizations and scholarships at Philip Barbour High School.
This year’s tournament kicks off with a shotgun start at 10:00 a.m. The $200 entry fee covers golf for a team of four, the use of two golf carts, lunch on the course, door prizes, and a chance to win $10,000 for a hole-in-one, in addition to skills prizes and $1,000 in cash for the four winning teams.
The tournament committee created cash prizes in an effort to attract more teams, including $300 in cash for the lowest-scoring team, and $200 for the runners-up in each of Flights A and B. Skills prizes will also be presented to individuals for the Longest Drive, Longest Putt, and Closest to the Pin. The committee will have Mulligans for sale and tickets in a 50/50 drawing.
Hole in one witnesses and assistance on the course will be provided by members of the Philip Barbour High School golf team and their adult sponsors, who will also serve lunch contributed by Broaddus Hospital. Several of West Virginia’s public golf courses are donating complimentary golf certificates as prizes.
The public is invited to support the annual Charity effort by entering a team, sending a door prize, or sponsoring a hole for $100 - for which recognition will be given on hole signs and in the media.
Registration is limited to the first 15 teams. Register with payment before May 18th with the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce, 101 College Hill Drive/ 2124, Philippi, 26416 or call 457-1958 for further information.
