TEAMS SOUGHT for 2017 PPVFD & EMS GOLF TOURNAMENT
GRANBURY – Calling all golfers! The Pecan Plantation VFD & EMS Auxiliary’s 2017 Annual Golf Tournament, set for Saturday, May 20, offers participants a chance to win valuable prizes and raise money for a worthy cause. Golfers from all over Hood County and beyond are invited to organize teams to compete in a Four-Person Mixed Scramble, with a 1 p.m. shotgun start, at the Pecan Plantation golf course.
Cost to enter is $40 per person. Registration deadline is Thursday, May 18, 2017. Mulligans can be purchased ahead of time at the Pecan Plantation Pro Shop, where golfers can pick up a registration form (call 817-573-2645). The Pro Shop will establish teams by handicap.
Carol Blakemore, Jeanie Curry and Martha Strange, co-chairs for this year’s event, are working hard to excite golfers and renew interest in the annual tournament with some enticing prizes. For the first time ever, Granbury Motorsports has generously donated a 2016 Yamaha FX SVHO 3-seater fully loaded jet ski for a “hole in one” prize. Raffle tickets will be sold for a gift basket provided by Revolver Brewing at the clubhouse on the day of the tournament.
Additionally, Pro Shop credit will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, along with a credit for “closest to the hole,” “closest to the line,” and “longest drive,” including both men and women.
All proceeds from the competition will benefit the Pecan Plantation volunteer fire department and emergency medical service.
