The greens of the Auburn University Club are set to hold the “2nd Annual Golf for Great Futures Tournament” July 10.
Benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Lee County, the tournament will host up to 25 teams consisting of four team members. The tournament is open for anyone that enjoys golf and wants to give back to their community in a fun way, according to BGCGLC Resource Development Director Betty Burns.
“Even if you don’t have a team of four but still want to participate, and you still want to play in the tournament, just let us know, and we’ll make sure that you get into a team,” Burns said.
Proceeds and donations raised from the event will be used to benefit the club’s summer programs and activities.
“Expenses skyrocket during the summer, so hosting the golf tournament really helps and allows us to continue to provide for the youth of Lee County,” Burns said.
The tournament will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. Sponsors and vendors will be promoting along the fairways and interacting with the golfers. Drinks are sponsored by Coca-Cola, and lunch will be provided by Moe’s BBQ.
