The event will kick off with a free lunch from 12 to 1 pm. The shotgun start for the Texas Scrambles format tournament will take place at 1 pm. Following the tournament there will be a banquet sponsored by G.S. Precision.
The tournament’s Hole-In-One Contest prizes are sponsored by Brattleboro Ford Subaru and include: 2014 Subaru Forester; a Kindle Fire; a $500 Visa gift card; and Cleveland CA16 Black Pearl Irons. Prizes will also be awarded for low gross and low net game scores, as well as for the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin for both men and women. Mulligans also will be on sale, and the traditional putting contest will take place.
A special feature at this year’s tournament is a Helicopter Golf Ball Drop at the close of the tournament, in which the owner of the winning golf ball collects $3,000 cash and a ride in the Renaud Bros. Inc. helicopter, piloted by Mike Renaud. Individuals do not need to be part of the tournament to buy golf balls, priced at $100 each, nor be present at the drop to win. Buckets of golf balls will be dropped from 20 feet on the fairway at the Brattleboro Country Club. A maximum of 100 balls, now available for purchase, will be sold, making the odds of winning high.
All proceeds from the tournament, which annually nets over $20,000, will help support Youth Services’ programs. Now celebrating its 42nd year helping families thrive, Youth Services promotes the healthy development of more than 1,121 youth and families.
