Golfers needed for Chamber golf tournament; Money to benefit CWC Students

The Carmi Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Golf Tournament Saturday, June 24 at Carmi Country Club. Golfers are needed for both the 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. shotgun starts.

“The money raised will be used to continue the Chamber’s scholarship program, continue competitive classroom grants for Carmi-White County teachers and investing in the White County CEO Program,” said Education Committee Chairman Justin Dartt

The “best-ball” tournament format features four-person teams at a cost of $50 per player, which includes all green fees, cart fees and lunch. Each member of the winning team will receive a $100 gift certificate to the country club and a commemorative tournament golf shirt.

Members of the second place team will each receive $50 country club gift certificates and third place team members will receive $25 gift certificates.

Prizes will also be awarded for the longest drive, longest putt and closest to the pin contests.

“A $10,000 cash prize will also be awarded to any golfer fortunate enough to hit a hole-in-one on one of the designated holes that day,” added Dartt.

Lunch will be provided for all golfers from noon to 1 p.m.  Individuals that would like to attend, but do not to play golf, may purchase lunch for $10.

One may register by calling the Chamber office at 618-382-7606 or by stopping at the office located in the City Building on West Main Street.  The deadline for golf registrations is Friday, June 16.
