17th annual Boys & Girls Club golf tournament set

The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe Golf Tournament is set for Monday, Oct. 11 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. The entire $195 entry fee goes directly to the Boys & Girls Club to continue its work with local children.

Last year, the event raised more $30,000 for local children. This year’s goal is to break $40,000.

“It’s a great deal for everyone,” said Karen Houser, the club’s executive director. “Edgewood’s regular green fee is $175, so look at the all the extras players receive. We have a reputation for having great prizes and lots of them.”

Players have their choice of format, either Best Ball or Scramble, with prizes awarded in both categories. In addition to $10,000 for an ace on all par threes, golfers have a shot at a grand prize golf vacation.

Other prizes include rounds of golf at Tahoe/Reno top courses, ski trips, sports memorabilia, golf equipment, wines and spirits, stays at top area hotels and certificates for area restaurants, attractions, activities and merchandise.

Golfers receive a gourmet breakfast buffet, a half-dozen Titleist ProV balls, a box lunch, beverages on the course and an awards reception with appetizers.

Hole-In-One sponsorships are available. For $3,000 a sponsor receives two foursomes, tee signage and pre and post-event publicity.

Hole sponsorships are available for $1,500 and include a foursome and publicity. Non-playing hole sponsorships are available for $900.

“Our sponsors and the players are the reason we can continue our efforts to help local kids,” Houser said. “Edgewood Tahoe donates the course so every dollar we raise goes to the club. Then, there’s our corporate partners, hole sponsors, local business who donate prizes, and the individual players. We thank them all.”

Playing spots, hole sponsorships, and hole-in-one promotions are available by contacting the Boys & Girls Club at 530-542-0838 or e-mail khouser@bgclt.org. Registration forms are also available at http://www.bgclt.org.
