American Red Cross Hosts 5th Annual Golf Scramble

…because of your continued support, Red Cross can be there to provide emergency assistance whenever there is a need.

The American Red Cross of Hardin County is hosting their 5th annual Golf Scramble Saturday, June 7, 2014 at Veterans Memorial Park Golf Course on State Route 309. Registration for the event begins at 7:30 a.m. and a shot gun start kicks off the event at 8:30 a.m.

Four member teams will compete for a vast array of prizes. The event is sponsored by various businesses throughout Hardin County. The first place team will win $250, second place $200 and the third place is $100. Skill contests will include a $10,000 Hole-in-One, Closest to the Pin on two of the Par 3, Longest Drive in Fairway, and Longest Putt on the 18th Green. Mulligans or a "do-over" to replay a stroke will be $20 per team. Skins will pay 75% back. A skin is claimed when a golfer outdoes the rest of the group and wins an individual hole.
