Sheriff’s Office Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament slated
After a one-year hiatus, the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament returns June 9 to Yampa Valley Golf Course, 2179 Highway 394.
Proceeds from the tournament benefit Moffat County High School graduates.
The event, which was cancelled last year due to flooding, is in a 4-person scramble format. Players form their own teams.
The cost is $40 per person, plus greens fees for nonmembers.
Pro shop credits will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place teams for net and gross scores. In addition, prizes will be awarded in closest to the pin and straightest drive contests. Each player can also buy two mulligans, for a total of eight per team.
All skill levels are welcome and no handicap is necessary.
Entry forms are available at the golf course or by calling Rick Holford at 826-2308.
