What could be better than 18 holes of golf and dinner afterwards on a beautiful October day? All area golfers are cordially invited to join the golfers of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church Hayesville in a benefit tournament on Saturday, October 4, at the Ridges Golf and Country Club. Chairman Jim Redmond says that golfers of all levels, both men and women, are welcome for fun, fellowship, food, and fund-raising.
Redmond describes the tournament as a four-person best ball scramble, with a shotgun start at 12:30. Awards will be given for closest to the pin and longest drive for both men and women. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and an auction for an opportunity to play with Father Bill Breedlove, who doesn't claim to be a champion but loves the game.
After the tournament, golfers and their guests will enjoy dinner and a cash bar at the Ridges. The price for the occasion is $100 per person, which includes 18 holes of golf with cart and dinner. Those who don't play golf but want to enjoy the fun may purchase a dinner only ticket for $25.
All proceeds will go to the cost of Good Shepherd's new elevator.
