Craig Sports Briefs for Sept. 9, 2015: Yahoo golf tourney drops Saturday

The Yahoo Golf Tournament and Ball Drop, a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Craig and Craig Kiwanis Club, takes place Saturday morning at Yampa Valley Golf Course.

The ball drop takes place at 8:30 a.m. with about 2,000 balls being dropped on the 18th fairway by plane, and entrants can purchase white or red balls — $10 for a white ball, $50 for one red and five whites or $100 for a dozen whites and three reds — that can win them some serious prizes, including custom fitted Calloway irons, Denver Broncos tickets, gift cards and more.

The annual tournament follows and will consist of two-person teams in men’s, women’s and mixed divisions. The $120 registration fee provides breakfast, a cart and driver and barbecue.
