Tee it up fore health at Barton’s 16th Golf Tournament

Mulligans are allowed during Barton Foundation’s 16th annual Golf Tournament at Genoa Lakes Golf Club and Resort July 23, but you can only have the do-over if you pay for it.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit the foundation’s community health endowment fund.

Registration, mulligan and raffle ticket sales begin at 6:45 a.m. The scramble golf tournament starts at 8 a.m. Competitions throughout the course give golfers the chance to take home special prizes. As the golfing ends, guests join the awards party, barbecue and announcement of raffle prize winners.

Golfers also have the opportunity to win a car with a hole-in-one, courtesy of Cardinale Way Toyota, as well as other great prizes for holes-in-one on additional holes. Everyone will compete in the closest-to-the-hole and longest drive competitions.

The $175 per-person entry fee, of which $100 is tax deductible, includes green fees, cart, golfer amenity package, a barbecue lunch and no-host bar.

Each year, Barton has made changes to enhance the tournament and draw greater interest for returning golfers as well as for new supporters.
