St. Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church will conduct its 10th annual Charity Golf Tournament May 11 at the Indiana Golf Club. The 18-hole, four-player scramble starts at 12:30 p.m.
“Registration begins at 10:45 a.m., and then we have our shotgun start,” said Lonny MacDonald, tournament chairperson. “We put each team on a different hole on the golf course. So, all 18 holes will have a team on them, and then we’ll signal. So, everybody starts at one time.”
Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics of Boone County and the Knights of Columbus Council 12510 Charity Fund.
“We’ve worked with the (Knights of Columbus) for several years,” MacDonald said. “Several of our members have relatives and friends that have utilized the Special Olympics because they have special needs relatives or friends. We just wanted to do something to benefit some local charities and have a good time while doing it.”
The registration fee is $125 per team of four. Lunch will be provided.
“We’ll have barbecue from Squealers with salad from Amore,” MacDonald said.
Golfers can participate in a 50/50 raffle.
“We will have a 50/50 raffle the day of the event and several drawings for prizes donated by sponsors,” MacDonald said. “Golfers in the tournament can buy additional 50/50 raffle tickets, but entrance into the tournament automatically puts you into all contests.”
Contests include longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin on four Par 3’s, longest putt and a hole-in-one for a car.
