will start with registration at 11:00am and first tee off at 11:40.

This is a CHURCHWIDE event. Not limited to golfers.

Everyone can participate by donating items for the baskets, buying tickets for the auction,

or coming just for dinner at 6:00pm.

This is a fun event. The golf is a scramble-format so you don’t have to be a pro golfer to play.
